I only had a couple of questions.

Can I use roads and rec and GPS Babel to load tracks the same way I did on my 60?
Is there a limit of 20 tracks like the 60?
Is the satellite imagery everything I hope it would be?
No kidding, my 76CSX shit the bed on day 2 of LA-B-V - less than 2 weeks ago.
One of the the battery contacts broke.
To be honest, it kept cutting out and when I tried to bend it back into place I broke it.
Anyway, it failed. I have a 14 year old eMap that I used on bikes, in a boat, and in a 4wd and it still works. The place I bought it from "hardened" it by adding silicone to some of the places that fail from vibration on handlebars...
I talked to the gent that I bought the eMap from at the Long Beach bike show last week (Tom Myers of Touratech USA / Cycoactive), he suggested to just get another 76CSX off eBay, the old one isn't worth fixing.

To be honest I never liked the tiny ass screen on the 76, I reckon a 276/376 would be a better replacement...

Good idea Rob!

Edit: I guess it's a common failure http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=828974
Maybe I should just wire USB power outlets on all my bikes... (I have them on 2 already )
