A solid, no frills workhorse. Getting outdated, though.

Summary: I have 2 Garmin emap receivers. I have owned them for 2 years. I use one of them along with a Alinco DR-135 for APRS mobile. The GPS is discontinued but you can find one on ebay for about $150 up. The emap has a good display. Not too big not too small.
