Here's an interesting discussion on the Garmin 2610.

I'm very interested in this unit. Is there anything else currently on the market that's comparable?

One of the things I like about the Garmin 2610 is that it uses CF cards for storage.

Does anyone know if CF card speed is critical in any way to the operation of the unit? IE, a 45x Ridata or Transcend CF card vs a standard Simpletech or Sandisk CF card?

My unscientific, unprofessional opinion, based mainly on regular reading of the newsgroup, SCI.GEO.SATELITTE-NAV, is that the speed of any of the compatible CF cards is not significant to the 2610 operation. Here is another good review of the 2610:

CF card speed?

Here's an interesting thread about CF card speeds.

I guess that answers THAT question!

(short answer... fast CF card is not necessarily faster in GPS operation)
