The GPSMAP-196 offers unprecedented features and utility in an aviation portable. In addition to the built-in Garmin basemap, the GPSMAP-196 accepts all of Garmin MapSource products and provides turn-by-turn route guidance for street navigation. The unit can operate in three different modes: Aviation, Land, and Water, with user preferences stored independently. Other exciting features include a unique \\\"panel page,\\\" which offers a graphical depiction of GPS-derived flight information, and an automatic logbook function that records departure airports, arrival airports, and flight time (automatically recording night flight based on sunrise/sunset information). This flight information is stored in the unit, and can be downloaded to Garmin logbook software (available at no charge from www.garmin.com). The GPSMAP-196\\\'s processor provides map redraws and scrolling at over twice the speed of previous aviation portables. With these features plus a large (3.8\\\" diagonal). 12-level grayscale display in a slim package, the GPSMAP-196 is sure to be the next big hit from Garmin.
