Check the Garmin website. It's exactly as I said before:


GPSMAP 78 comes with built-in worldwide basemap, so you can navigate anywhere with ease...

Add Maps

Adding more maps is easy with our wide array of detailed marine, topographic and road maps, available on microSD card. Conveniently plug in BlueChartŪ g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NTŪ map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.
The 78 is a current model that Garmin still makes, and sells for $249. Like most of Garmin's marine GPSs sold today, you need to buy the charts separately.
