Visual inspection of the PCB and memory module shows cleaner solder joints than was on the Garmin memory card. At this point I am happy with the purchase as my only options were to purchase a 512 meg card for damn near the same price and on twenty-five percent of the storage capacity. Seemed like a slam dunk to me if everything arrived in good order and functioning properly. I will update as soon as I get a chance to fully load the card and check that both map sets are fully accessibly from the 276.
K.B. many map segments was there in the 24K TOPO West? Is it correct you had to take the "case" from a Garmin memory stick, and put this "bit" into it? I have a 276C as well, but am concerned the 276C's map segment allowance will run out well before all the memory (1 gig or 2??) is used up.
