    Same here. I think they are due for release in SA in December. I will wait a month or so just to see that are no major gotchas and then pull the trigger on one. The Landcruiser club will be making a group buy so if you 20-30 guys using them all the time, any issues will crop up soon. I believe they will not the coming with street maps ( I hope I am wrong) so will be loading them with the Open streetmaps and Open Topo maps. I do believe those maps are just as good as the Garmin equivalents and for the price (mahala) you cannot beat them

    Where would a body look to purchase one of these units? We land in Cape Town in 5 days, and will be in Durban and the Johannesburg area before we need one. Thanks for your advice!

    Which, if any, maps were loaded when you received yours?

    I have just one question about the 276Cx which will make or break the decision to buy or not

    Can I upload a "great number of tracklogs" from a gdb file (saved under "active logs") and display all of them without having to manually "enable" each tracklog individually?

    This question alone is the reason I never regarded either the Oregon or the Montana as "a GPS", because on them you had to activate each log manually (as I was told by those who knew).

    Came with topo light. I loaded open topo and street maps and t4a. Found my sweet spot with those three maps. Running at the same time
