    help me buy a gps

    I want to buy a gps for mountain biking and city travel. something that i can download the latest maps on for trails and city( like topo and city nav), and something that is cheap, (under 400.00).. I was out of town biking and got lost on the way to the camp site and then couldnt find the trail I wanted to ride. I also want to be able to track my miles and map out what I rode when I get back to the computer. Thanks for your help..

    +2....

    Great biking, hiking and geocaching GPS. Not the best for automobile usage, but gets me to where I want to go with City Nav. I've taken many spills with this unit on the bars and it hasn't disappointed.

    the larger screen and more dedicated buttons on the 60csx make it the better choice for hiking and in car use. The smaller Vista is better suited to be mounted on handle bars.

    The external antenna on the 60 series improves reception in canopy and canyons, but agian, at the cost of a slightly larger unit.

    I love my 60 (had a Vista) but don't mount it to my bars. I just thow it in my pack.
