Is Garmin still socking it to Aviation with that 99 MPH/Kt limit trick which
differentiates their Aviation and non-Aviation products (i.e., $$$)?

  John/Paul:
                   Least expensive?  Probably Garmin's e-Map, now on
closeout sale at a Walmart near you for $169.  Easily fits in your shirt or
flight suit pocket.  Simple one hand operation, large screen, complete USA
terrain/cities map.  We have followed its neat little steering arrow from
Florida to Canada and all points in between.  Has no airport data base but
only takes a minute or two to pinpoint and select GoTo for any spot on the
continent.  Check it out on their excellent web site.  While there
(www.garmin.com), also check out the e-Trex series which will absolutely
have the basic unit you are seeking.  The e-trex is slightly smaller than
the e-Map in length and width, but thicker in depth.  Costs more too!

            Cheers,  Frank
