    I am gonna be in the market soon for a new handheld and would like some suggestions. Needs to be color, SD card compatable, EXTREMELY user friendly as I struggle with electronic items, budget $500.00. What would you suggest and why? Use for hunting and fishing.

    I don't need the color options. I prefer the basic sub 100 dollar Etrex.
    Waypoints, go to feature, course and speed are all I use.
    But all Garmins are extremely durable and easy to use.

    I picked up a Garmin Colorado 400c fo $250 to back up my Garmin 498 which I may need to send in for repair. It's a nice color unit albeit small.
