Garmin fēnix 7 vs fēnix 6 Maps & Navigation

All the Garmin fēnix 7 multisport GPS watches—fēnix 7/7S/7X standard, Solar, Sapphire Solar—come preloaded with golf, ski, road & trail maps. The fēnix 7/7S/7X Sapphire Solar models are preloaded with topographic maps, while you can download TopoActive maps onto the standard and Solar models.
Both the fēnix 6 and fēnix 7 series have built-in sensors for the 3-axis compass, gyroscope and barometric altimeter; supports multi-GNSS satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo).
Additionally, the fēnix 7/7S/7X Sapphire Solar models offer navigation with a higher level of positioning accuracy, thanks to new multi-band frequency and GNSS network support (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo).
