Garmin GPS help wanted

Does anyone have any views on this GPS system. It says for land and sea, or would I be better off buying a diferent model. Garmin GPSMAP 276C 529.00 inclusive of VAT

Many thanks

Mike.....

I have this model.
It fits nicely on my little rib and does exactly what I ask of it.

In an ideal world I would have a much larger screen but then I wouldn't be able to fit it on my rib!

It works on the rib and in my car. (on the dashboard)

Don't forget to factor in the cost of the map cards if you need/want them. About a hundred quid a pop for the 'small' chart card

I have also just bought this model. Literally today, so I haven't actually tested it out yet. However, it seems to be a nice little gadget. Good screen, easy to use and I don't think you lose anything from having the multi-function car/boat features. I have experience of both smaller Garmin h/helds and a larger 2006 plotter. It seems to share features of both which is good news.
