Garmin Vista.
You can even get it in color now, Garmin Vista-C.
You have to use garmin's propritary software for the topo maps, but they are bases on USGS maps, so they are accurate.

Look to spend $250 for the greyscale vista, $350 for the color, and $100 for the topo software. Also the color GPS's batteries last longer thatn the greyscale...20 hours vs 15 pre set (2 AA).

SEARCH and you shall succeed

1996, 2.7 l, 5-speed, Downey 3.5" lift, NWOR Try-y header, K&N FIPK, B F Goodrich 31x10.5 All Terrain KO's, custom rear bumper, Diamond headlights, NWOR cross-drilled rotors Whiteface glo gauges, and Firestone on-board air compressor with a 1 gallon tank.
