Daniel, I hope you are well. Detroit Airport was a mess, so it was good you didn't come. I would go with a Garmin 78 series. I think it is worth contacting Garmin. Their experts can help you sort out the dilemma. They were very helpful when I picked out a GPS for my airplane.There are many variables to consider. I would go with the most way points, best battery and good a good size external memory card. Good luck, Bob

I am sure you saw this in a previous post from Nola: Thanks for the help. I've decided to follow Fred's advice and go with the Garmin GPSMAP series, but I am now faced with the decision of which device within that series (60CX, 60CSX, 76CX, 76CSX, 78, 78S, 78SC). All of these seem about the same to this novice, but it appears that the primary difference is that the devices in the 78 series (78, 78S, 78SC) have the following advantages: (1) 18 vs. 20 battery life, (2) 1.7 GB built-in memory, and (3) storage of 2,000 waypoints (vs. 1,000). This is making me lean in the direction of the 78 series. Does anyone have any insight/advice/guidance on this? Also, does the Atlantic Coast Route have more than 2,000 waypoints and, if so, then what's the work around? I am hoping to have as much of the route "pre-loaded" as possible so that I don't have to deal with updating on the road (if that makes sense). I know that this question has been asked before relative to other routes but I could not get back to the answer. I REALLY appreciate the help. - NOLA.
