Default Which GPS?

I'm in the market for a gps unit. Never owned one and not sure what to look for. I'll make a list of what I'd be using it for and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I'd like to make my own trail route. Leave from my house and have the gps unit track my route on a map so I can print it out afterwards.
Of course to also aid if I get lost lol (happens at least once a year lol).
Road trips of course would be the 2nd use.

I've lived in my house 7 years now and have what I consider my own trails. They are nothing more than ditchbanging and boondocking. But I'd like to have them on a map so I can make notes and keep track of which routes go where. Make sense? I snowmobile in cadillac alot in the winter and would like to start making my own routes there as well. Must be mountable on my sled. I'd like to say that money isn't a factor but I can't quite say that lol. Under $300 would be awesome but open to all suggestions.

I've never had one either but I think they'd be pretty cool to have for marking those little sweet spots you come across!!

Although I have no direct experience with them (I like getting lost, it makes "trips" into "adventures"), I'd say Garmin is the way to go. There's a site that some guy makes snowmobile trail overlays that you can download.

And Garmin has a great reputation IMO.

^^ agreed!! Last year I found a killer hillclimb off the cadillac trail systems. The next time I went I was going to show it to my buddies and couldn't find it lol, we gave up. I've been surfing garmins website all afternoon. Glad I don't have a boss lol.

Looks like it'll fit the bill. Opinions? I found some on ebay for less than $200.

On these GPS's you can down load satelite images from your computer.Which I use
