Built for life on the boat.


This handheld is a water-resistant IPX7 with a high-resolution colour display you can read in the sun. The glass is even scratch-resistant and fog proof.


If rough waters come and the handheld goes overboard, don’t worry. This device floats.


User-replaceable AA batteries (not included) provide up to 19 hours of battery life in GPS tracking mode.

Exactly what you need to navigate.


With support for multiple satellite constellations — such as GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS and SBAS — you’ll get accurate, reliable tracking and positioning around the world.


More memory than previous models means you can save and track 10,000 waypoints, 250 routes and 300 fitness activity files.


The 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass shows your heading — even while the boat is standing still.


Preloaded BlueChart g3 coastal charts (GPSMAP 79sc only) give you leading-edge coverage, clarity and detail with integrated Garmin and Navionics data.
