IMHO, of course.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I'd never chose a 478 over a Montana. The chipset is slow, the proprietary data cards are stupid expensive, the durability issues make it not nearly as good a unit as the Montana. But, in all fairness, the 478 does allow you to do a lot more setup on the unit then the Montana. That being said, I can easily get by without those options and as you mentioned, the added features of the Montana are very much welcome.
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.
