Can someone give me suggestions on a GPS unit for $200 or less. I don't know a dang thing about them and I need one for my September hunt. Thanks.

The Garmin 72 and the magellon 200 are both 129.00 and the etrex is 99.00, should be sufficient units, not top end xchip models but functional Im sure, I use a OLD magellon, it does what I need, Im more a compass map guy.:fire:

iphone! :first:

I have a Garmin Etrex vista. Its one of the older models but you can load detailed topographic maps into it and select waypoints if you need to do it. This model is extremely user friendly IMO. If you get one nowadays they come in color screen option which is nice! If you get one and have trouble with it I can guide you through getting it set-up! Good luck.

Jeff, when in September, I have a garmin map60csx that you can borrow. if your wanting to buy Acadamy and Walmart carry the Garmin Etrex it is good and cheap under a $100.

I got a Garmin Etrex Legend today at Bass Pro so I should be good. Now all I have to do is figure out how to use it.
