Garmin International announced the GPSMAP 276Cx, an upgraded reinvention of the 276C chart plotter.

The company said the 276Cx now features GPS and Glonass for better performance in heavy cover, optional external antenna support (sold separately), HotFix for faster satellite acquisition and wireless connectivity features.

There’s a larger, sunlight-readable five-inch display, as well as a barometric altimeter and three-axis compass that were not in the 276C.

“We’re excited to introduce a fresh and versatile update to the classic all-terrain navigator with the GPSMAP 276Cx,” Garmin vice president of worldwide sales Dan Bartel said in a statement.

“Back by popular demand and updated to fit the 2016 user, the GPSMAP 276Cx can handle anything users want to put it through, no matter if they are out on the water, hitting the trails or cruising through city streets.”
