I'm with Albie...
I still have a 276C that:
Never had un-expected shut-downs
Never re-calced a route
Never lost it's screen calibration
Never had firmware updates that broke more than it fixed.
I replaced my original 276 with a refurb because the
case leaked enough to finally coat the back side of the display glass with dust
other than that, they have been flawless
I have already replaced my first Montana because of screen calibration issues.
The new one works OK but:
I have given up on using the rechargeable battery due to continued shutdowns
AA lithiums have cured that problem
My screen will go nuts if it is exposed to direct sunlight for more than a short time
I hate the touch screen
The Montana product line is 2 years old and we are still getting bug ridden firmware
I bought the Montana because it has better memory and processor power than the 276C
I did not expect to still be fighting hardware and firmware problems 2 years later....
Garmin has fumbled this model so bad that, if I had an alternative, I would drop Garmin like a bad habit
