Sea kayak Magazine has just listed MAP78 by Garmin as the best gps system. Anyone have any experience with it and have an opinion?

My wife and I had the 76CX and we figured we would upgrade to the 78.

Thanks. Too bad about the new model not being up to standards. sort of shocking that you can't get tides for where you actually are!
Like I mentioned above though ...|

If you now have a 76CX, you won't like the 78.
Thought I'd mention|

This may not be pertinent to your paddling but we use the birdseye imagery on almost all our trips. We do a lot of tidal creeks and marshes, becoming disorientated is easy and having satellite imagery of the area will save a lot of time poking around wrong turns and dead ends. The imagery costs $30 a year and you have to use Basecamp to load it (free). Also with Birdseye and Basecamp you can draw a track to follow on the PC using topo or satellite and transfer the track to your handheld for field use. Very handy for us.
