I've been thinking about buying a GPS for a couple of years and will do so in a couple of months. I need advice on which one is best for me so consider the following. I go cross country where there are no roads. I wanna be able to program routes so I can follow them. I wanna record routes so I can see where I've been. I wanna be able to use it on motorcycle(s) and car and hand held. I live in New Zealand and I'd also like to use it to get around Europe/USA/UK. Do I need to buy maps for the unit? Can these be copied/ripped? The 76C looks good as does the 276C??? or the V?? And, if I buy one onthe net from overseas will it have a useful basemap and will it work in NZ?
