Garmin GPSMap 76S is a useful tool for outdoor exploration.
Get coordinates for all of the landmarks that you encounter on your journey.
The Garmin GPSMap 76S is a waterproof, portable device that uses global positioning satellites to determine the coordinates for your location. This requires a clear view of a large portion of the sky. It works in many river canyons where a part of the sky is obscured by the canyon walls. It is useful to mark the locations of all the interesting landmarks that you encounter during your journeys. For example, on a whitewater river kayaking trip we may want to locate put-ins, take-outs, whitewater rapids, logjams, side creek hiking locations, playboating spots, etc.
