Product Description

GPS 72 worldwide bundle

Make a splash with the GPS 72H, a lightweight, waterproof handheld that floats. Simple yet robust, the GPS 72H features high-sensitivity GPS and a USB connection along with its large screen, simple operation and rock-solid performance. Even with all this it will still fit into a pocket

Easy-to-use

Acquire Satellites Quickly

It is easy to create and mark waypoints with the GPS 72H. You can add them to routes and you can navigate directly to a selected waypoint. You can create waypoints using three methods: you can mark your current location, create a waypoint on the map or enter coordinates for a waypoint manually. Use GO TO at any point to quickly find a waypoint.

Mark Your Way

Find your way effortlessly with the GPS 72H's high-sensitivity GPS receiver. GPS 72H acquires satellite signals quickly and tracks your location in challenging conditions, such as heavy tree cover or deep valleys.

Make Tracks

The tracks feature creates an electronic breadcrumb trail or 'Track Log' on the map page as you travel. The track log contains information about points along its path. The track log starts recording as soon as the GPS 72H acquires satellite signals. You can navigate a saved track with the TracBack® feature navigation uses track points in a saved track to automatically create a route.

Use on Land or Water

Don't worry about losing this GPS device in the drink. The GPS 72H floats in water, and it is IPX7 waterproof to withstand the accidental dunk or splash in the lake. Whether on water or land, the GPS 72H can save up to 500 of your favourite places in memory and point you to your destination (no street or terrain maps).

Man Overboard

In the event of a person falling off your boat, press and hold MOB to store your current location. Select Yes to begin navigating to that point.

Store Important Data

The GPS 72H is NMEA 0183 compatible. To transfer data to your device, GPS 72H easily connects to your computer via USB. If you're into boating, hunting or fishing, you can use the 72H's built-in celestial data, which includes sunrise/sunset times and a hunting and fishing calendar.

The GPS 72H bundle comes with a 12v Cigarette Lighter Power Cable, Marine Mounting Bracket and carrycase.

Model: 010-00840-01
Firstly, most prospective purchasers should also consider other similar models such as the many versions of eTrex or the GPS60, because this is rather a "specialist" device. That one of its main features is that "it floats" is a clue that it's particularly intended for boating. This also explains the retention of a RS232 "COM" serial port, compatible with the NMEA interface used by marine devices.

The original GPS72 design is at least 7 years old and the user interface has hardly changed from my first GPS purchased more than 15 years ago. However, the high sensitivity receiver and addition of a USB connector are very worthwhile improvements in this new "H" model. Other positive features are the relatively large screen and the number of front-panel buttons (well-labelled and most backlit at night) giving a generally easy user-interface. It's "transreflective" monochrome screen remains clear in the brightest sunlight, with an adjustable white backlight at night.

For data entry, with most modern Garmins (like the GPS60) you "pick" characters from a two-dimensional tabular array using the joystick/pad. However, this model employs a continuous "ring" of alphanumeric characters and symbols, which I personally prefer. It does take longer to enter characters from the latter part of the alphabet, but number-only fields actually can be quicker and it's possible to enter characters purely by "counting" button-presses without my need to put on spectacles !

On the negative side, the memory size (for recording tracks) is very small for a modern device and the "support" from Garmin currently rather limited. The CD in the box carries only user manuals, there is no software like Mapsource, as (normally) included with the GPS60.

We bought this to take on a sailing holiday and it was ideal for providing an easy lat and long. Does not replace proper map reading and navigation skills but for just over £100 gave tremendous peace of mind. When I graduate to a permanant boat with a built in chart plotter then the 72H will make an ideal back up and will go in my emergency grab-bag. Easy to use, although entering way-points is fiddly. It does not come with a charger (which I think you can buy separately) and heavy on battery use, so make sure you have plenty of spares. Of note a friend had an entirley more user friendly experience with a chart plotter app on his iPad. Not sure an iPad floats though...

Model: 010-00840-01
You can if you look carefully get this item substantially cheaper from a chandlery shed. Yes it is basic because people are going back to basics and working off of charts and maps, and using compasses. Why? Because through use people have discovered that te GPS signal is prone to getting distorted by large electrical fields and all those bells and whistles consumes batteries very fast. As most people will tell you this model is for sailors. So what could it do with? A world wide navigation buoyage list and the timings of high tide at places like Dover and Cherbourg for ten years or any other chart datum tide port, it already has sunrise and sunset. The next would be an upload of a tabulated list of waypoints from imray or admiralty electronic charts with the ability to download this list into a garmin 152 fixed gps or any other garmin plotter. At the moment nothing does these simple requirements but this beast could. Where Garmin fall down is inter operability and they do not make it easy for you to enter vast numbers of waypoints which iswhat you need on a coastal hop when you are dodging mud banks on the east coast or rocks off the channel islands.
So why only three stars? Because it could be so much better.

My 20 year old Garmin died recently and this is a superb replacement at a reasonable cost. Better shape but probably not as "bomb-proof" as the old model. Easy to operate.
