The GPSMAP 176 is a 12 parallel channel, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver with an extra-large display that makes keeping your eye on the map easy. With its 12-level gray high-contrast FSTN, you'll get a display that measures 3.80 inches diagonally and delivers a crisp picture thanks to a pixel count of 320 x 240. This ensures you'll have the best view of all the map detail in any lighting condition.
On the inside, the GPSMAP 176 comes equipped with a built-in basemap and is enhanced by Garmin's BlueChart® marine cartography, a miniature-size chip that inserts into the unit and provides additional offshore map detail. The cartography includes detailed depth contours, inter-tidal zones, spot soundings, wrecks, navaids, port plans, restricted areas, cable areas, anchorages and much more. For use in a car, the GPSMAP 176 can accept downloadable information from most Garmin MapSource® products. A special mounting bracket is available that will allow this product to be temporarily mounted in a car.
