I just purchased the 76CSx and have been playing with it for a week. I maybe should have done my research before, but it doesn't come with pre-loaded charts, and to buy the areas I need it would take another $300-400 just for the charts. Plus, I didn't like the size and aesthetics of it.

Today I sent the unit back (purchased through Amazon, best prices for it) and will be purchasing the Oregon 400 or Colorado because they come with pre-loaded charts. The Colorado can be purchased for only about $50 more than the 76CSx, comes with the charts, and is a lot more sleek.
