    They all pretty much do the same thing and are all reading from the same satellites.

    I would really like to get a Garmin GPSMAP 76Cx (you can see it at: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=161&pID=350 ). It has the high sensitive receiver, is waterproof and it floats.

    I have a 276C I use in my truck and on my snowmobile now. I've had 1/2" of Ice on that unit and it works like a champ. I've been impressed with it.

    The 76Cx is the one I'm going to get. And the price is better elsewhere than on Garmin's website.

    I'm actually thinking about hardwiring this one to my glovebox hatch. Nuvi 500. It's waterproof.

    If you can find one, the old Garmin GPS III is about as easy to read, big visibility numbers as you can get. Not waterproof, but pretty water resistnt, as in it doesn't mind getting splashed a little(only a little), occasionally.
    Its just b/w lcd and resolution is horrible by my Nuvi's standards but I still prefer it for my FZ.

    The Forerunner 201 is not obtrusive and fastens right to the handlebars. You cannot even tell it is there. I just remove mine when I park the ski. It has the a max speed feature. It is also down-loadable.
