GPSMAP 76 Ext. Antenna?

Recommended Posts

Guest ADelikat

Hi! I'm looking to purchase my first GPS for geocaching. I would also be using it for driving. So far, I have narrowed it down to the GPS III+ and the GPSMAP 76. Could anyone tell me what the performance of the 76's external antenna in comparison with the GPS III? Thanks!

I sell GPS units and the external antenna is designed for installation on a boat (or maybe RV) and would be hard to carry around in the woods. My advice is go with the internal antenna.

Thanks for your reply. What is the performance of the 76's internal antenna like in comparison with the GPS III+? Thanks again!

If you're going fishing,the 76. If you're going cache hunting, the III Plus.

actually canoeguy is quite wrong about the External Antenna being too big for the outdoors hiker or Cacher. I have the antenna as well as it is hooked up to the map76. It is about 1/3 the size of a mouse and three times lighter. You can hook it to your collar or stick it under your hat or even just cary it by hand. It without a doubt increases sat reception two fold at times.
