    Jelo it's a bit worse than that.

    It's an android tablet but you cant add anything else, it's locked down to the garmin applets.

    Updates are via wifi. You need to select the osm map tiles.

    Re: Which Garmin GPS

    Kenskind I agree with the above and I'm very happy with mine but the 276cx is no longer listed as an active product in the US so I doubt there'll be much firmware development in future.

    Re: Jeep Commander Rear recovery point.

    A loaded commander (say 2500kgs) would require a recovery of 3750 kgs (up to belly in sand) or 5000Kgs (up to the belly in mud) so the 7000 kg design spec seems a little light to me. Also, as stated...

    Re: From 17" to 15"

    Ideally when you reduce the rim size you increase the profile
    sufficiently to maintain the overall diameter - the 265 x 70 x 15 are
