I have a Garmin eTrex (12 Channel) with a soft case and the cigarette lighter adapter (in case your batteries die) I'd be willing to sell for $40.

I live near Santa Fe and Evans. I can upload pictures if you're interested.

Here is a link to the manual....

I don't know of any handheld GPS that will mark depth. If you want that, you'll need a fishfinder with GPS features.

You can enter a waypoint and go to it (the manual will tell you how to do this). This is a basic GPS that doesn't have maps in the background.

Here are some pictures.....

Absolutely LOVE ...my new garmin 60CSX! Tons of memory even without the extra card. Yes, you can add a bunch of notes to any waypoint. Picks up a single better than any I have ever used too.

The thing I have liked the most is the ability to open up your tracks w/ waypoints in Google Earth 3D,a nd then you can even move into flight simultator mode and fly over you stuff! Way cool!

I agree 100 percent, this is no doubt the best GPS i have ever used....and the new receivers on them pick up satellites even in the thickest of cover....well worth the money in my opinion. if you buy the mapping software for them (1:24,000) for your area they are even better....
