Screen Examples on Garmin 76 Series Receivers (Gray Scale)
 
Trail map on Garmin GPS 76
This is a sample of the screen display of a Garmin GPS 76. This is not called a "mapping" receiver because there are no background maps.

The screen is displaying some track logs stored in what is called the "Saved Tracks" memory storage to give you a current trail map of the area.  The loop at the lower left is a primitive trail around Hartenstein Lake in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness in Colorado.
Closeup of trail junction
This is the same screen display of a Garmin GPS 76 but zoomed in on the trail junction. The screen display is at 300 feet, which is the length of the line under the text "300".  "Saved Track" logs are being displayed and represent the trails.  If we were actually there when this screen image was captured, there would be a solid black triangle showing our location on this map.
Closeup of trail junction with waypoints
Here is another image capture of the map screen of a Garmin GPS 76 showing the trail junction.  This time waypoints have been added.  The location of the waypoints is shown by the small black square, or icon,  under the name of the waypoint.  Track logs are written over the waypoint icon, so sometimes it is hard to see it.  "JC8086" is shown highlighted by putting the cursor over it to select it.

"IS8089" is where a small or intermittent stream crosses the trail.
"OJR084" is where an old road branches off the current trail.
"ST8087" is where the trail crosses a stream.  There is another icon just to the left of "JC8086" that is another stream crossing waypoint.  The name of it is hidden so it won't interfere with the adjacent names. 
Trail map around lake and waypoints
The map screen of a Garmin GPS 76 showing the trail around Hartenstein Lake with waypoints being shown.
Standard background maps This is a sample of the screen display of a Garmin GPSmap 76 with the Mapsource United States TOPO (1:100,000 scale) maps loaded in the receiver.  The lake at the lower left is Hartenstein Lake in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness.  The trail shown is what is left of an old wagon road over Brown's Pass.  Note that no trail is shown to Hartenstein Lake even though an old wagon road went in that direction too.

If we were actually there when this screen image was captured, there would be a solid black triangle showing our location on this map.
M76 screen image of topo map with overlayed current trails This is another sample of the screen display of a Garmin GPSmap 76 with the Mapsource United States TOPO (1:100,000 scale) maps loaded in the receiver.  In addtion, some saved track logs are added for updated trail maps.  These are the darker gray lines with black dots in the middle of the line.  These lines are on the wide side compared to most other lines on the display.
Trail junction closeup Here is a closeup of the trail junction on the map screen of a Garmin GPSmap 76 with the Mapsource United States TOPO (1:100,000 scale) maps loaded in the receiver.

The screen is also displaying some track logs stored in what is called the "Saved Tracks" memory storage to give you a current and generally more accurate trail map of the area.  The cursor is highlighting the stream "North Fork".
Junction with waypoints
The same closeup as above of the trail junction on the map screen of a Garmin GPSmap 76 with background maps loaded.  This time waypoints have been added.  The location of the waypoints is shown by the small black square,or icon,  under the name of the waypoint.  Track logs are written over the waypoint icon, so sometimes it is hard to see it.  "ST8086" is shown highlighted by putting the cursor over it to select it.
