$650.00
I used mine all season and its excellent.
It has alot of great features.
Plus its small enough to fit nicely on my dash, and I can remove it easily when not in use. Also does not get hardwired in... uses a battery.

The screen is big enough, and alot better than most handhelds.

A bigger screen would be nice but other than that a very nice unit. They fit nice on the dash and the battery seems to last quite a while. No glare in the sun.
Just my .02

I bought one this summer with the auto and marine kit. I just bought a new boat and would be willing to sell it. Let meknow if you are interested. P.S. I was very happy with the unit.

I have the older 176C and got a great deal on it the begining of the sumemr just before the 276C came out. I am very happy with it and from what I hear the 276C screen is even better. I think Garmin stuff is great quality too. If you like the smallish screen (I did because I only had room for little) it is great product.
