Ok, so I'm going to be going on a little bit of a road trip in about a month. Currently my only GPS system isa laptop with external antenna, running microsoft's Streets and Trips. While I like it for use in my car, it's not all thatpractical on a bike.

What I'm looking for is alow-end GPS unit that will offer street-level maps. I don't need voice prompts, or color, or anything like that. I'm also looking to keep the price under $150 if possible. If anyone has a suggestion on a unit to look into, or you have yester-year's model sitting in a box gathering dust, let me know.

I picked up an etrex Legend for $120 at officemax.com

They are clearencing them out. The legend has a base-map of the americanhighway system, and 8 megs of storage for street level maps.

That GPS V (5) looks pretty neat-o.

well, I JUST got it about 2 hours ago...

It shows the canadian highway system, but for street-level detail, you'll need to get the CD.

For the backroads, you'll need the CD.

In the states, it handles Freeways, state routes, and highways. Assume that comparable-sized roads will be available in the Canadian base-map.
