Summary: I believe this is one of the best GPS unit Garmin ever made, the only point I can stress out is about the tracks. The unit can memorize a track with more than 2500 viapoints you can download it to your PC but restoring it to the unit you must shorten the number of viapoints to 700-900 otherwise the track will me cut. Anyway you can manage this with base camp SW by Garmin.
Show me a better navigator and I will try to discuss with you this question

Summary: I definitely like the Garmin 276. There are several reasons. It is resistant to water, which allows it to different weather and road conditions. Simple and easy to use. Has many functions and is relatively expensive. But the most important thing for me that the control buttons on the browser, which is very convenient and practical in muddy. Many modern navigators steady to water, but the touch control, which is not very convenient.
This is one of the best on the market despite its age

Summary: I knew this product by reputation and admit my good choice in ordering this particular type. It was done to target a specific goal ie: that of navigating in Africa with an associated computer. Despite not knowing how this product compares to others, I can unreservedly say it does the trick.
Summary: These units have been a favorite of motorcyclists for a lot of reasons, durable and vibration resistance, bright screen that can be seen in the brightest sun, waterproof, buttons that can be operated with gloves (many touch screens cannot, tracking function, that lets you save and review where you have been.
Summary: The only draw back is the battery life .If you fish in the bay system of the lower part of South Texas you half to have it hard wired to your on board battery the small rechareable just won't last half day maybe, beside that it could not be better better than good but not excellent
