I like my Garmin 400T. Touch screen makes it real simple to operate. It's expensive but I caught it on sale plus got a rebate. Couldn't resist.

Yeah, man am I loosing sleep these days up all night playing with the flight simulator!

Other things I have noticed with the new one

Super fast sat aquisition!
Have never lost the sats yet
Great storage (haven't even got the extra card yet!)
Different levels of backlighting which helps reserve the batt life & doesn't always have to completely bright all the time. Nice to take a quick peak to ensure that you are still on the trail. This seemed helped tremendously a few weeks back when I was moving onto a water hole way before sunrise and I was walking right through a small herd of pronghorns. I was off course a few yards and was able to quickly check w/o scaring them off.

Will the Garmin CX do that also? I am planning on getting that model since the only difference I could tell was an electonic compass and something else i can't remeber.
