Garmin, the world’s largest and most innovative marine electronics manufacturer, announces the GPSMAP 79 marine handheld series designed to equip mariners with a suite of essential, easy-to-use onboard navigation tools from the palm of their hand. Building on the legacy of the GPSMAP 78 series, the GPSMAP 79 series introduces an all-new design with modern display features and optional built-in BlueChart® g3 coastal charts to enhance navigation and peace of mind for boaters as they explore open waters. Packed securely in a rugged, floating design, the GPSMAP 79 series is purpose-built to suit a variety of on-water lifestyles.

“Whether used as a backup solution for onboard electronics or a dedicated navigation device, the GPSMAP 79 series provides a number of key tools every mariner should have on hand when leaving shore,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Along with a fresh new design, easy-to-interpret mapping and modern features, the GPSMAP 79 Series offers greater peace of mind and more efficient on-water navigation as mariners search for promising fishing spots or set out on a weekend cruise.”

Enhanced navigation

The GPSMAP 79 series is available in two models – the Garmin GPSMAP 79s with a built-in worldwide base map and support for downloadable marine charts, and the Garmin GPSMAP 79sc which comes standard with built-in BlueChart g3 cartography. In addition to a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass, GPSMAP 79 marine handhelds use reliable GNSS with support for multiple constellations which allows boaters to access data across the world.

Crisp display

No matter the conditions, the GPSMAP 79 series prevents fogging and improves contrast of on-screen mapping thanks to a larger, optically bonded display with 2.5-times higher resolution than its previous range. Specially crafted for life on the water, the new, transflective color display with a scratch-resistant glass lens allows for sunlight-readable navigation to enhance clarity and visibility in outdoor environments.

Marinized design

The GPSMAP 79 series provides users with up to 19 hours of battery life while using GPS, and – thanks to its practical floating design and water resistance2 – can continue to perform in harsh marine environments. For capturing even more adventures on the lake or at sea, the GPSMAP 79 series offers 8GB of memory for storage of up to 10,000 waypoints and 250 routes.
