    I'g get the Garmin Legend HCx from Amazon.com for around $150 like I did and if you plan on hunting over here in the states you can still buy one or two state SD chips for it and stay below your budget. If you have no plans to come here, then go up to a fancier one, but stay with Garmin as I think they make the best GPS units.

    I bought a Garmin 450 this summer and I like it ALOT more than my old Lowrance. Cabellas had 'em on sale for a while last month.

    Using the Garmin 62S here. A little more than your budgeted expense,but Ive never been this happy with a gps. LOOONG battery life. Ease of opperation. I added a colorado micro SD card with detailed topo and color coded boundries including management units. If you can swing it,that would be my recommendation.

    I have a Garmin Oregon 400T ( the T stands for topo map that comes preloaded ) and I love it! They can be had online new for your price range. I bought a land ownership SD card from the store on this forum, and it is awesome!!!! Very easy to use and it's touchscreen.
