Garmin's MAP60 CSx is an all-purpose upgradeable handheld locator that lets you load up your own digital maps for better reference. The reflective 256-color display lets you find your way on the map in almost any lighting. It's got a long-life battery for up to 20 hours of outdoors adventuring. The new MicroSD card slots make it simpler than ever to find those out-of-the-way places -- just put them on a MicroSD card and load it up.

Review: I own this unit. I had a great deal when I bought it. Really tough GPS unit, and water proof too, mine came with 1GB micro SD card, max recommendation is 2GB.
Almost a whole VA map is on it and still have plenty of place on the card. I have also a mountain bike handlebar mount and I like to use it, when I go cycling with my bike. All together this 60CSx is a great GPS unit for all purpose. One more thing the battery can be rechargeable too, but you have to set up in the options.

Review: I actually own the GPSMap 60Cx which as far as I know has been discontinued but it's very similar (the GPSMap 60Cx only lacks the digital compass and barometric altimeter). The color screen is brilliant and easy to read in all light conditions. The unit is powered by AA batteries which was annoying at first (I was hoping it would be rechargeable) but for long, remote trips batteries are the only way to go. Plus you get an amazing amount of run time out of those 2 little batteries so I can't complain. The included base maps are pretty limited so you'll also want to pick up Garmin MapSource Topo edition if you do a lot of backpacking or hiking to get the most out of this unit. With even more software you can get this baby to do turn by turn driving directions but I haven't tried that myself yet. Highly recommended.
