And make notes as to what protocols are supported - NMEA, Garmin binary,
Magellan ($PMGNWPL), etc.  I think at least some of the eTrex units only
take waypoints in Garmin format.  And last I heard, the 276C does both but
creates sequentially-numbered waypoints when given a duplicate name in
Garmin mode only.

Are they really that much better than anything else?  Guess I'd better get
those added to my store - I've got a number of Deluo SiRF III units on hand
that I haven't even listed yet.  I think retail is $68 on those.
