One thing I would have to recommend. If you get a 276/378/478 unit, you will probably want to get a Garmin memory card for it... and the USB card reader. The card reader allows you to read/write the card, and you can use it to transfer waypoints, routes, tracks and firmware upgrades to the unit.
Currently, the software that Garmin supplies is Wintel based only. They have promised Mac OS X support later this year. Entering the waypoint and routes is a lot easier on the PC than it is on the units, although you can do it on the units in a pinch.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
