Summary: This GPS purchased at Amazon.con, is user friendly and easy to use. At home I added a number of waypoints for locations I use regularly while boating. Today actually, out on the water I put one of them to use. This was a reference point to head to when returning to my home harbor.
Summary: i would like to know a phone number to call an amazon representative because i order a gps on april 27 but i didn't receive yet i made a claim via email but i never receive a response from amazon or any third party this is my review about my purchase.

Summary: With the rest of the GPS devices shifting to color, the large b&w screen on this unit means money well spent. It's fast enough for practically any use. I've been using it in South East La. post-Katrina, Where those piney back woods were often blocked by debris.
Summary: This is a great gps, especially for marine purposes. I searched around and researched before deciding on purchasing the gpsmap 76. I find the preloaded base maps to be very sufficient and fairly detailed. It's waterproof and submersible, what else could you ask for.
Summary: So I finally got around to upgrading my trusty 3 year old Garmin 12XL to a new GPSMAP 76. I played with one of the Magellan 330s at the local store for comparison but found that once again I simply prefer the Garmin user interfaces. I also picked up the MetroGuide CD.
