I just went through the same routine a few weeks back. I bought the 276C. The screen was a big plus. Why would you not buy a unit designed for use in bright sunlight (the 276C is a marine unit, after all, meant for use on a boat)? It has all the auto-routing features you'd ever want. As others have said, you know you also need to buy the detailed mapping software for installation on your PC and downlaoding to the GPS, and a memory card (I got the 256MB one). The other plus is the battery. Even in the short time I've had it, I can't imagine not having battery power. Go to cycoactive.com to read their comparison of the two units. Well worth the read.
