Acquire Satellites Quickly

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 canyons.

Use on Land or Water

Don't worry about losing this GPS device in the drink. The GPS 72H floats in water, and it's 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 favorite places in memory and point you to your destination (no street or terrain maps).

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.
