Bob:
       I can't find all of the specs but know that our e-Map has tracked well at over 250mph, so much for the 99 limit.

       Cheers,  Frank

  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
