The GPSMAP 96C offers an extensive Jeppesen database along with a U.S. database of obstacles for the ultimate in moving-map situational awareness. It depicts Jeppesen airport data overlaid on an electronic map, localizer-like runway extensions, a GPS-derived horizontal situation indicator (HSI) and information on nearby airports (including identifier, bearing and distance to each). It also features a detailed database of nearby obstructions like radio towers and high-rise buildings. Using symbology, it depicts an obstacle along the flight route, giving pilots a visual cue and alerting them to potential hazards ahead.
Like all of Garmin's new aviation portables, the GPSMAP 96C also provides advanced navigation capabilities on the road or water. It features a built-in basemap depicting highways, major roads, lakes, rivers, railroads and state and national borders. It also provides automatic-route generation, off-route recalculation, and turn-by-turn directions with audible tones to alert the driver of upcoming turns.
When coupled with optional MapSource City Select software, GPSMAP 96C enables the user to locate and route to more than 5 million points of interest, including hotels, restaurants, service stations, ATMs and more. For pilots who also like to captain a boat, these units have a Marine mode. Using optional MapSource BlueChart or Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots software, users can navigate the high seas or nearby lakes with ease. An added bonus: The GPSMAP 96C is not only waterproof, but also floats!
