Ditto the Magellan 315. They are no longer being made and you can get them
dirt cheap at Wall-mart. Works at up to 200MPH no problem. I made a little
bracket with two suction cups and it sits neatly at eye level on the side of
my canopy.

	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.

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

question
			
			
			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 <http://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
