Excerpt: I disagree with previous reviewers, because it is possible to load my own data into the GARMIN GPSmap 76CS. I have used the DNR Garmin extension (V 5.4.1) "Downloaded for free" for this purpose and loaded my own shapefiles into the GPS.
Summary: I didn't realize that it is so bulky. it doesn't fit in a pocket. And, as other GPS-only devices, it is limited in functionality. I returned this item and got myself Dell Axim x51v and GlobalSat Bluetooth GPS receiver, which I'm pretty satisfied with.
Summary: I don't need to write a review about the 76CS, it is a great tool. What is really great here is the lack of the "s" from the product description. This is really the color sensor model althought the s has been dropped. With free shipping, the deal is the best anywhere!
Summary: The unit itself is a little bulky but the larger issue is the maps. The unlocking process is just brutal. Its not worth the aggravation. Stay away. And just so you know, I'm an IT professional and this is the most difficult product I think I ever worked with.
Summary: I purchased the gps about 1 month ago.The biggest reason I purchased it for was to use it hunting and fishing for marking spots and getting back on unfamiliar lakes.I also down loaded the fishing hot spot map onto my gps and was very surprised on all the road and highway detail it provides along...
