Although the manufacturer's manual contains the official recommendations and is a tremendous reference, ZD Publishing, Inc. concentrates on a task-oriented format that guides you step-by-step. Generous use of graphics helps you understand the text for unfamiliar tasks. All the GPS operations are covered. This comprehensive manual also describes all the receiver's pages and their uses. The table of contents, combined with the task-oriented format, make this take-along manual an invaluable aid for seldom-used features.
The GPSMAP 396 brings a color display terrain alerts and a built-in obstacle database of the U.S. to the hand-held world. It includes the features of the 196 model and the map page can show a transparent navigation arc view for course, speed, and distance information much like the 530 model. The GPSMAP 396 comes with an AC adaptor so you can practice at home without using up the rechargeable batteries. It is designed to move seamlessly between an aircraft, vehicle, or boat.
