Garmin GPSMap 276Cx


A trusted old unit revised and updated.  The old 276c was every overlander’s dream GPS and for some still is.  Garmin updated this old unit with the 276Cx.  It still is a marine chart plotter, making it very robust.  The screen is big and bright, but with no touch screen your input is still via buttons instead of a keyboard.  If you can live with that then this unit is a solid overlanding companion.  The new model also uses SD cards for additional storage instead of the old proprietary Garmin cards from a decade ago.

You need to buy the automotive mount to get voice guidance.
