Garmin 276C vrs 478

My trusted 276C was destroyed in an accident a month ago and I replaced it with a 478. I've loaded all my base maps, Topo's, Roads & Rec into the 478 and now I'm noticing quite a few differences.

The 478 does not seem to offer the level of detail the 276 did, also it's missing some of the nav screens. I've gone through all the menu's and tried to tune it up but still I'm not seeing the level of detail.

Is this because the 478 was a marine/land unit (WX, XM etc...) and they left out some of the 276C ability?

Also, the clock/date can not be adjusted manually, and it's not updating from the sats. Does this mean the internal 3v battery is dead?

Thanks DW

I became friends with someone just because they rode motorcycles from no-place to no-where.

Canada eh...
