I am looking for the same. How much do you want to spend?

I'm not really sure simple to use long batterie life and able to down load waypoints onto a topo map program would be nice

Well I'd say you are already in the 21st century, using the internet to connect with other hunters to discuss what GPS unit to purchase.
I don't own a GPS unit. However I have used a few garmin's with no complaints.

I've been looking at the Magellan 315 on the low end of the $$$ spectrum and the Lowrance Global Map 100 on the higher end. The Garmin GPS 12 is another inexpensive option.
The 315 has a "best fish and game calculator" to tell you when the odds are in your favor.

Something to consider. If you have a palm pilot, you can get a GPS receiver attachment then use software like this:
to overlay the GPS data with real/topo maps. They also make GPS receivers for notebook computers. Some of the receivers reside in the mouse!
I have not used these products, but if you have a palm/pda or notebook they might be something to look into.

Get a cheep one they are easier to use, and work just as good as any.

OK I bought my GPS unit. I bought a garmin 12 XL Simple to use, works well. Why spend anymore money for opions I won't use. Flew over my goat area last week marked waypoints. Now when I go in on the ground I know which direction to head :smile: at least thats the plan

Sounds like you are mapping out the area pretty good for your hunt. After 25 years of waiting for the tag, I think it is pretty smart to plan ahead and map it out.
Where did you end up getting your Garmin?

Picked it up over in Spokane WA. Took the family over there for the weekend and to do some school clothes shopping. While they were clothes shopping I found a great sporting good store; and spent alot of money.
