Based on the challenges being faced by the fisherman and cost sensitivity, we proposed them Garmin GPSMAP 78S which checks almost all challenges being faced by the fisherman, as the device has the following features.
The fisherman in the coastal areas of the State of Andhra Pradesh are now using Garmin GPSMAP 78S which is subsidized by the State and the central government, GPSMAP 78S is being used not only for navigation in water but also for feeding coordinates into the GPS receiver provided to them by the Dept. of Fisheries and navigating to hot fishing points and to avoid points where there might not be any fishes. The instances of Indian fisherman crossing into neighboring countries water borders have also reduced significantly. This has made there fishing much safer and more efficient.
