    Default Recommend me a new GPS!

    I tried the search function and came up empty.. Something reliable and under 300?

    You can find a few threads about GPS's under the Alaska Outdoor Gear section.

    I have the Garmin 550T and love it.

    I have the Garmin Dakota and love it. Plenty of functionality with a smaller color screen, a bit less resolution maybe, than the Oregon or others. A bit lighter and smaller and it may be better on batteries (smaller screen) but i don't have proof.

    Can't go wrong with any of the Garmins.
