That is the basic 78, yes. But the MEC price is too high for that model. Show them this GPSCity (http://www.gpscity.com/garmin-gpsmap-78.html) web page and MEC should price match it at $169.

YouTube was painfully slow to upload to in the past, often timing out at the end for me. And playback looked horrible too. That's why I went to Vimeo.
