    I've got a Magellan GPS 315 that works very well. Picked it up for $148 at Walmart. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif It can usually see 7 or 8 satellites at a time, so the position it reports is very accurate.

    It depend on use. If Driving get one with a big srceen.
    Just hicking the etrex mey be best do to size. It comes to price vs features. I have a magellan 330. You can upload and download to your pc with extra topo and street maps. It has all the bells & whisles. It was $249. Came with free street map of the U.S. Cd. It finds my pos very fast. Even under med cover( car & house). If your spending $200. Its worth looking at For $50 more. Note the street map Cd is valed at $50.

    Go with the Magellan 315 like was mentioned earlier. The company's phasing them out so you can get one for $119 w/a $20 mail in rebate. I know 2 poeople that have 'em, unit does everything they wanted it for (both are guides in Alaska).
