Any opinions on this vs. the 276c CC has a group buy on right now?

I need a GPS that my wife can mount in her explorer, but if I get this one I might be able to have a built-in mount in the JK also for easy transfer between vehicles.

You need to find out more detailed info on it. Like how many tracks it will store. etc.

I've always had my eye on that, because of it's mounting position...but I can't justify $900 on it. :confused:

I've had it for 2 years now on my TJ. Best investment I think I ever made for it. It is also equivalent to the Garmin Quest 2 if you're looking for accessories. I bought a mount for it on my mountain bike. I don't know exactly how many tracks it will store but I do know I have the breadcrumb feature turned on always when I drive and I have hundreds of miles of breadcrumbs to back track If needed. I also have room to store a few hundred geocaches on there too.

Here are the Quest 2 specs. Does this unit have the same specs then? Quadratec is contacting MOPAR for me buy are yet to respond.

"140 MB additional memory for supplemental maps such as MapSource Topo, Topo 24K, Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots, BlueChart or City Navigator Europe"
