Exactly. And BurnieM hit it on the head.
Personally, I think the 'proprietary card' issue is a red herring. I've had 2 276Cs, and have criss-crossed Canada and the US several times with them. Having to load maps twice or three times a year hasn't been nearly the 'burden' that it's made out to be, and being able to use the GPS off-bike with the battery has been a serious positive.
There are battery packs available for the 2610, but I carry enough junk around as it is.
