+Mineral2 Posted September 5, 2018 Share Posted September 5, 2018 (edited) Since there hasn't been a post here announcing this - it's official. The GPSMAP 66 series is on its way.https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/598455 Large, 3” sunlight-readable color display for easy viewing Multiple Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) support to track your travels in more challenging environments than GPS alone plus three-axis compass and barometric altimeter Access to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery with direct-to-device downloads and no annual subscription Expanded wireless connectivity supports Active Weather for up-to-date forecasts and animated weather radar and Geocaching Live for mobile syncing and updates Compatible with Garmin Explore™ website and app to help you manage tracks, routes and waypoints and review statistics from the field Up to 16 hours of battery life in GPS mode; 1 week in expedition mode lets you explore longer than ever before on a single set of AA batteries There are some interesting advancements here. It's no surprise that the same wireless connectivity introduced in the Oregon 700 series now makes its way to the GPSMAP line. It also seems that Garmin's answer to Basecamp is to move all services to the cloud/web version with Garmin Explore. MGNSS - Does this model support more satellite systems than just the American GPS and Russian GLONASS? From the images, it looks like there's some changes to the physical size and layout of the device with a larger screen and higher resolution screen. And it comes with a whopping 16GB of internal storage. Edited September 5, 2018 by Mineral2 2 Quote Link to comment
