Agreed on all counts!expeditionswest said:The 276C will be my next GPS purchase (probably in the next 30 days or so). Feature rich and a big, daylight readable screen.
It is a winner in my opinion.
I have the 276C and the vehicle mount kit, but have not installed it yet. Just use the bean-bag on the dash.... and throw it on the passenger seat when going verticalgbell210 said:... these seem like a little over kill for just a land based vehicle.
Hey, what kinda work you do/did? I am a Land Surveyor and use it for mapping wetlands and such too! As for tree coverage issues, we noticed the Topcon unit worked awesome and the Trimble unit not so good.concretejungle said:Reason i ask is i used to work at a company and we had a really accurate $6,000 GPS unit we used for maping wetlands and such. .
gbellgbell210 said:... I didn't want it to be in my view of the road when I didn't have the GPS there and I didn't want to keep taking it on and off, espically when I put up a sunshade to block the sun when parked. With the RAM mounts, they screw to the gps unit itself, and isn't as easy to detach
That's the unit I use in my 80. Works great. I got a RAM mount from gpscity.com for it. It doesn't get in my way at all when I'm driving. I'm very pleased.
