I had a Garmin 45 that quit working (6yrs old, no idea why) so I started shopping. I have multiple uses...boating, hiking, climbing, off road riding, so it wasn't easy. I decided a mapping unit would be fun. It is! At the end of your ride you can see where you went, total distance, elevation gain/loss. Then there's the driving directions. You download maps and it will tell you what street is coming up, ect...
I chose the Garmin 76S and bought the street atlas and US topo CD's.
No life saving stories yet, but it sure is nice to know which way to go to get back to the truck...all them trees and trails start looking the same after awhile.
