Explore confidently with premium GPSMAP 67 and 67i
The all-new GPSMAP 67 Series includes a pair of button-operated handhelds built tough for any adventure with a 3" sunlight-readable color display. Both are powered by internal lithium-ion batteries for extended life, boasting up to 180 hours in standard mode and up to 840 hours in expedition mode.
Both models allow users to access preloaded TopoActive mapping from Garmin, view satellite imagery and navigate with multi-band GNSS support and sensors to explore with confidence.
Adventurers can also download premium maps with an Outdoor Maps+ subscription, which had previously only been available on a handheld with the Montana® 700 Series.

Using inReach technology, the GPSMAP 67i enables two-way messaging and location tracking via the 100% global Iridium® satellite network. Users can trigger an interactive SOS to Garmin Response, a 24/7 staffed professional emergency coordination center, that can communicate with the user in addition to notifying the applicable search and rescue organization or other resources. Garmin Response will provide updates on the status of the response effort. Garmin Response will continue to monitor the incident until it is resolved.
