well, who has a good one that they are happy with for less than one hundred nintey dollars?
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.
thanks a lot, annyone else?
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.
Take a look at geocaching.com. Its all about Gps
i personally have the garmin 12xl(vvery primitive), my bro has the emap i think(lot of main roads). try and get one with downloadable points and maps.

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).
