This unit is designed to be hassle-free. There is no need for a memory battery since it has permanent user-data storage. This means you will not accidentally lose your information in the case your batteries run out. In addition, it is water proof for up to 30 minutes at one meter or water and floats. Thus, rain, waves, or even and accidental drop overboard will not damage your unit.

The Garmin GPSMAP 76c has many features that make it stand out from the other units on the market. It can record information about your trip including mileage, time spent stopped, average speed, and the total time spent traveling. It also includes traditional celestial table and sun and moon calculations.

When you are on the water, having an effective GPS unit is critical. A good unit will include alarms for anchor drag, course deviation, or proximity waypoints. Furthermore, you will want to make sure that it is able to work with industry standard software such as BlueCharts or US Topo.
