Anything Garmin.

I have an older 76S and I love the thing. The new 60CS has removeable memory cards, color screen and gets signal much better than any of the older unit. I do not need a new one at this point because mine still works great but if I were it would be the 60CS.

    I own RIno 520 and is the best.
    All my hunting friend have the Rino 520 / 530 units.
    Are great units, with GPS, Radio, temp, altitudine, elev, etc.
    The best unit for HUNTING SITUATION.

    Thanks for all the info so far guys it's really helpful. I was a little nervous about the bushnell because they just started to get into this game. Could you guys tell me the features you like the most about your gps.

    Thanks again

    I have used a Magellan Meridian for the past 5 or so years and have never had any problem with it. Buffalo Bob is right, any GPS has to have batteries put in every once in awhile, kinda like the gun you carry, if you use some of the bullets you have to replace them or your gun won't work either. The main feature I like about this unit is the ease of use and accuracy. I find it amazing that you can download some coordinates from the computer into your GPS and then follow the arrow to the destination and be able to find a cache that someone hid in the middle of the mountains. I personaly use my GPS like this, 1. Mark my start point & shut of the GPS, (saves batteries) 2. Hunt til I put something down or want to go back 3.Start up the GPS and tell it to "GO TO" the starting spot which will always the shortest distance and go. A person can always find his way back to the start spot without a GPS or compass but a GPS will save a bunch of steps.

    do any of these units have a removable antenna? I ofter wonder why they don't as the unit could be placed in your pack or pocket and the antenna on the shoulder strap of your pack and still keep tracking at all times. I find myself taking the unit and just trying to carry in my hand at times.
