GARMIN GPS Navigation      

GARMIN is acknowledged as the world leader in handheld GPS navigation equipment. The models MAP60CX (and previously the MAP76 series) are the most commonly used in airsports and are the main models supported by competition download software.

NOTE that new models such as Colorado and Oregon are not supported by the competition scene and all touch screen models are not user friendly when wearing gloves and are therefore not recommended.

Godfrey's Manilla Paragliding is the only official GARMIN dealer in Australia for Paragliding and Hang Gliding. Please phone or email Godfrey for expert advice on GPS.


  MAP78 Special discount price of $275 (inc express postage)

The succeeder to the popular GPSMAP76 series. This is a new model with similar and upgraded features to the well known classic 76's. It has huge 1.7 GB of internal memory, as well as a microSD card slot. Up to 20 hours battery life from 2x AA batteries. USB and NMEA 0183 compatible. It now stores 2000 waypoints, 200 routes, and has a 10,000 point active track log, with 200 saved tracks. Its also water proof and floats !
The Garmin 78 will become one of the main models used for airsports. Like the 76 series it features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, colour TFT screen and turn-by-turn routing. Full mapping can be easily loaded via USB cable from a PC. Its also available in an "S" version meaning it has additional sensors, however these are not needed for airsports and a waste of the extra $$'s.

   MAP62   Special discount price AUD$275.00 (inc express postage)

Same as MAP78 but in a different housing with protruding antenna and keypad at the bottom. Also this is not waterproof and does not float ! Generally the 60 series is best suited to handheld use and not flying, however some pilots like the slightly smaller case.
