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 :confused: I kind of like the Quest 2 having detailed maps which I could add topo's to, but for $200+ more :hmm:

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

Thanks

2610: :nod:
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 :idunno:

Hiking? :eek:

Yeah, you'd want to go with the Quest then.
:nod: I was slack this year but check the sheep site. Almost every fall on there I rode the Ascot to :D (not the ones in the polar north)

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.

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

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 :thrdjack:

Man!! What a feature, to have Nexrad radar on your GPS..... could have used that on my last trip:hitfan: but didn't like the $99 a month price for the weather radar feature. If XM would come down on their subscription price....:soapbox:

The only reason you like the 376 is that it is in the fishing section

If you want one that is great for hiking as well as mounting on the bike i use the GPSmap 60 c and love it. It doesn't map on the streets as well as some of the others but with the City Select North America software it works great. It betters served for hiking and backpacking but i still love the thing
