The Garmin eTrex Personal Navigator. Locks on very quickly, is very accurate (WAAS enabled), small and lightweight. It uses only 2 AA batteries and I get about 15-20 hours runtime on them. It is about $120. I have had several handhelds and the eTrex is by far the best.

Go to Best Buy for a handheld GPS. They have a good selection and all are at a reasonable price and seem to be priced the lowest.

I bought my Garmin 76S GPS Handheld on E-Bay. It took me 2 weeks to get it by bidding.. It cost almost $400 new in the box and I got it for $300 new in the box from a dealer. I really like it. It has a lot more memory space in it for way points and such. Take a look at E-Bay and see what they have to offer..... Only giving you my 2 cents worth...

I agree with the E-Trex. It is lightweight waterproof and easy to use. I have it hooked to my Sc-Tex fishfinder to mark spots where I get hits so that I can go back to them. Great combination.
