The GPSMAP 196 is a versatile navigator for air, land, and sea.
This WAAS-capable unit has detailed moving map graphics, HSI steering guidance, a Jeppesen database, and all the other pilot-friendly features you'd expect from GARMIN. You'll be amazed at the exceptional resolution and contrast on this unit's 12-level grayscale display, and its lightning-fast processor makes for extremely fast map redraws and scrolling.
Situational awareness gets a boost from built-in land detail that includes political boundaries, cities, interstates, roads, rivers, and lakes. Steering guidance is clearly presented through a graphic HSI with VNAV, with extended runway centerlines to help orient you to the runway. An automatic logbook also calculates your flight time and automatically records departure and arrival locations. When used with GARMIN's free logbook software-FlightBook-this feature makes light work of maintaining your logbook. Your flight information will be stored in the unit and can be downloaded to this exclusive GPSMAP 196 Flightbook software at any time.
The GPSMAP 196 compromises nothing in its versatility, going from cockpit to land to water. In fact, it offers some of the same features found in expensive in-dash car navigation systems, including auto routing. In addition to the built-in GARMIN basemap, the GPSMAP 196 accepts most of our MapSource products.*
* requires a Garmin Memory Data Card to download the MapSource Software to the GPS unit.
