If anyone is searching for a good GPS system, I would definitely recommend the Garmin Colorado 400I. I've owned mine for a few years now, and I swear by it. It's great and I've never had any problems with it. ... 622-51.htm

I bought a MAgellan 315 about 3 years ago, and it has changed my life. It isn't the simplest thing in the world to use, but it is worth it. I mark every water supply or source of shelter I come across, and it has already helped out a couple of times. Be forewarned, they are battery hogs, and you had better take basically a set per day of your trip. Hope this helps
