Garmin Quest vs Quest 2?

I have a potential windfall in the near future and am considering a GPS finally.

Anyone have knowledge of the Quest or Quest 2 (both even better).

Sounds like they don't come with a charger I kind of like the Quest 2 having detailed maps which I could add topo's to, but for $200+ more

The main use would be the RR with some time on the Ascot and a couple of car trips.

Thanks

Thought about it but I like the Quest so I can pluck it off when hiking to waterfalls. Also I could take a battery operated one more places

Re: Garmin Quest vs Quest 2?

Hiking?

Yeah, you'd want to go with the Quest then.

I was slack this year but check the sheep site. Almost every fall on there I rode the Ascot to (not the ones in the polar north)

Re: Garmin Quest vs Quest 2?

The 2 comes with the pre-loaded detailed maps and additional memory. The original comes with a map CD but not enough memory to hold them all. It does have a very good base map built in though. The 2 also allows you to turn the screen sideways. I believe both come with chargers for 12v and 110v.

Re: Garmin Quest vs Quest 2?

The 2610 has no battery, so it's not portable. Unless he wants to throw a motorcycle battery in his backpack when he hikes.

Re: Garmin Quest vs Quest 2?

Other than cost...not big drawbacks, especially if you are moving it between vehicles. It functions very well in automotive and marine mode...
A very good "all-purpose" GPS....

I considered the Quest 2, the 2610, the 2720 and the 276c, and setteled on the 276c because it has a larger screen, does more than one track, has expandable memory and has a removable/replaceable battery. The other plus is that most of the hardware I already have from my now defunct GPS V is compatablewith the 276c.

From all accounts I've seen the Garmin Quest 2 is a great unit, and would have gotten one if I did not already have all that compatable hardware (power cables from bike, remote antennas, beanbag mounts for the car, and software)

Sorry for being a
