Description

Multi-band/GNSS handheld with sensors and TopoActive Europe maps

The Garmin GPSMAP 66sr is a great button GPS unit. It is the same as the GPSMAP 66s but it has Garmin’s Topo Active mapping installed for Europe and also it has the addition of multi-band/ GNSS technology to give improved accuracy. The addition of the built-in battery (Garmin state 26 hours of battery life, but take this with a pinch of salt).

It is currently the only Garmin GPS unit to work alongside the Garmin Explore app, which, going forward, will be the way things are progressing.

Too many features to list but it has everything you could ever ask for.

With this end of the market you really should be putting Ordnance Survey maps on this GPS so please choose the 1:50k or 1:25k mapping option.

The best four-season GPS unit from Garmin and with the addition of the European mapping (which is updatable).

 –              With Topo Active Maps

The map is less detailed than OS maps but provides relevant useful information for activities like hiking and cycling, it’s routable giving you turn by turn routing (on and off road) and shows elevation changes. Read our review on TopoActive mapping and look at how it looks in an article here.

Features topographic coverage for 47 countries in Europe: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia (Kaliningrad only), San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the Vatican City.

–              With Birdseye PLUS Voucher (25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps)

You activate the map credit against your Garmin account and then once you have this map credit in place you have one year to download your 25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps.

25,000 sq km is larger than the size of Wales and the area you choose can be split (i.e. you can choose areas from all over Great Britain).

Don’t worry, if you buy the unit from Outdoor GPS Shop you will get a step by step guide of how to download this mapping.

–              With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

–              With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:25k

This is full GB at 1:50k, 1:50k and 1:250k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit. As you zoom in and out you pass through each of these three map sets.

    Bought this as a replacement for a lost GPSMAP 64 st. I liked that but I’m loving this, mainly for the accuracy you get with the multi-band, multi-sensor. Haven’t had a chance to play with all the features yet, but no doubt will eventually.
