It depends on why you want it. I have a low-end gps that works fine for me. I only use it to mark the truck and camp just in case I get turned around and mark the spot where my meat is when I have to make multiple trips to pack it out.

gps unit

I like my Garmins, I've got a 60csx and love it but if you don't want to drop 300-400 bucks on a gps, their etrex series work well also.

I'm playing with a delorme unit now the aerial photo maps are kind of nice but not sure it can replace my 60csx

I have a Garmin Rhino, they come in very handy if you hunt in groups or just have friends to help pack meat out. You can view the locations of your friends as well as send them waypoints. Not to mention the radio functions and weather channels. I love mine.

Get a Garmin with the high sensitivity receiver (I think most have it now). For years I used my "low-end" Magellan and it did just fine, until last year. We got into thick timber and some steep valleys and I lost the GPS signal numerous times. My buddy had a 60csx and never lost signal. I now have a Garmin Rino 530hcx and can't wait to use it in about 3 weeks! It picks up the signal fast, holds the signal, and has real good battery life. Another nice feature to mention is that if your buddies have Rino's as well, you can see where they are in relation to your position.
