I am partial to my Garmin Vista Cx. It does everything a jeeper would need it to do. I have friends that run the Garmin Nuvi 500. Like most of the Nuvi line it is built more for on-road navigation but if you buy the topo maps in SD card format you can load them onto the Nuvi 500. If you have a few more dollars look at the 60csx, but remember you will probably be spending at least $100 on maps to load onto whatever gps you buy.

I concur with scott, get an Etrex if you have no money to spend or a 60csx, i went with the Rino 530, and have found the radio to be pretty useless. Wish i would have gone with the 60, easier to use, more funtions, and as bigger screen.

IMHO Jeepers dont need spoonfeeding when it comes to navigation, it just comes down to a map with a "you are here sticker" that updates every few seconds. Point the way and ill figure it out, once in the 711 parking lot i can figure out for myself how to manuever the vehicle into the space without looking at the GPSr rant off/

Cliffs notes: whatever your budget: get a garmin and dont look back

I am not a big GPS fanatic nor do I know a lot about them by any means but I have a Magellen crossover unit that does streets, marine and off road with a back track and base camp feature. I have been using it for about a year without any issues and two of my friends bought this same unit and are both happy. For around 100 bucks it does me well.
