    I also have the 60CSX with the public land boundary map. It is my first GPS so I have nothing to compare it to but I love the thing.

    I just picked up the Garmin Oregon 450t and so far its a great little piece, it went on sale and was cheaper than the lesser gps'. touchscreen works great! bought the northern rockys topo chip for it as well.

    I recently bought a Garmin Dakota 20. Have played around with a bit and it seems really cool. Just got a cabelas flyer and it has a Dakota 20 and topography card for $230. Looks to be a really good deal.

    I am looking at the DeLorme Earthmate PN-60 GPS. Has anyone used or know anything about them?

    I have a Garmin eTrex Vista and absolutely love it. I became sold on GPS units on an elk hunt in OR. I got turned around late and night and I know it would have been a very long evening without it. I owned an older Magellan and it worked fine, but the Garmin has performed flawlessly and picks up up a signal better (may be due to newer technology though).

    You've got to have the electronic compass. For a hunter I don't think anything less is even worth considering. Also, you need expandable memory via the SD cards. Internal memory is just too limited.

    Garmin has come out with the BirdsEye satellite imagery mapping. This allows you to download actual satellite images to your unit, which I have not used but it sounds fantastic. The best part is you can overlay your topo maps on it. My next one will have this capability. You must be sure it is compatible with the software. I was sold on their new one, the 62S, but I just noticed they came out with a new eTrex that is compatible. It is a little cheaper.

    Don't be afraid of Garmin as I'm thrilled so far.

    We got ourselves a pair of Garmin Hcx530. Yeah pricey, but they have all the features you are wanting, plus when you split up you can still see the location of the other person(s) who also have one. Built in radios, weather radio channels, and many other features. We love ours - rugged and waterproof too.

    I 2nd that they absolutely work. Not only do they work but when the State of Wyoming sent my paper elk tag there was a flyer in the envelope for the maps from gpshuntingmaps.com. If that isnt an endorsement from the G&F, I don't know what is.
