I can't believe how much they are fetching on eBay, I was almost tempted t sell mine n put the money towards a new one, but heh why not use it, it's like a old friend, done some miles in Landrovers so seems only fitting to have it on the SR4 now

The secondhand price of one is the same as a new 451

Battery powered armchair chart plotter surfing at it's best

the best bit of the 276c was the fact it was so flexible, which is probably why Garmin ditched it! depending on what you wanted it for, you could change data cards so it could be used as a route planer for your drive to the slipway, then just change the card and it's a chartplotter, you could even add a transducer through a black box for depth etc. or add another card with air navigation charts, brilliant piece of kit I used it with the OS map reference settings applied, so you could pin point you actual position on a map, very useful in a forest. glad I can use it again on the SR4, nice piece of kit
