Easy to Use
The GPSMAP 178 packs a built-in worldwide marine basemap, state-of-the art processor with lightening-fast map redraw, and crisp, sunlight readable, 10-level grayscale display into a waterproof, space-saving console that is perfect for large crafts and small runabouts alike. Boaters will love its convenient, intuitive design including:
- Simple keypad with backlighting for easy operation.
- One knob, adjustable tilt and swivel mount so you can quickly pop it in and out.
