376C vs 2730

What is the latest consensus on which unit is better? I can't see much difference for the extra price one would have to pay for the 2730 other than it plays Mp3s which is not that big a deal since I already have a better solution in an Ipod. It appears to me also that the 376C also displays much more weather info than the 2730. I don't think one can receive NEXRAD on the latter. Correct me if I'm wrong. I see that the 2730 uses POIs which I assume stands for Points of Interest. How is these different from waypoints? Does the 376C have voice commands like the Street Pilot? What is the cost of service with XM Radio? Can I use the City Navigator software from my Street Pilot III and if so, can I purchase a unit without software?

I can't believe the pricing on their packages. $30 a month with $50 activation fee? Are you sure they are for everyday users? They're talking about marine service plans. I hope they have other plans or this is going to be a deal breaker.
