Re: Garmin GPS

I have a Garmin 450 and it rocks!! The one you show is for golfers, but basically the same format. I have downloaded Landowner/BLM/State/federal maps and even elk migration routes for free from: GPSFileDepot - Garmin Compatible Custom Maps. Montana Landowner Topo V3. UPDATED 01/22/2010 Garmin Compatible Map - GPSFileDepot

Just pick the state you want and download!

I would shop around for a better price than the site you picked. Here are a few that I have used:
Amazon.com: Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator: Electronics

Garmin Approach G5

Garmin Approach Golf GPS Best Prices!!

Universal mania has the oregon 550 for $411, that is a steal if you want a camera on your gps. Garmin Oregon 550 Worldwide Handheld GPS - Universal Mania Inc.

Re: Garmin GPS

The 400i is only $230 here. Garmin Colorado 400I - Garmin Colorado 400I deals - Garmin Colorado 400I bargains - Garmin Colorado 400I deals - Handheld GPS Receiver - 010-00622-51

FWIW--I would get the Oregon 300 rather than the colorado for the money, the roller wheel is kinda awkward and not near as user friendly as the touchscreen.
You can get an oregon 300 for $279 now that the 450s have arrived in stores.
