    Handheld GPS

    I am looking for a GPS device that will track my GPS and save it as a GPX file so that I may upload it to Strava. Also I am looking for the GPS unit to help me get back to my starting point should I ever get lost. I don't want to spend more than $150 (if that's possible). I was looking at the Garmin Edge 500 but I don't see that it can get you back to a waypoint. I also saw my buddies Garmin Etrex 10 and sort of liked that.

    Any ideas?

    I'd try to get an etrex 20 if possible, on sale you might find one for 150. Then you have the ability to add maps, which IMO helps a lot navigating to a particular (or even starting) point.

    If you can stretch to 200, REI just put the 62s on sale. Normally a 350 gps, it would be a nice one to have.

    Edit: Maybe the sale hasn't started yet, I got a catalog in the mail a couple of days ago. Probably this weekend.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......
