I am thinking of getting a GPS for hunting. What is the best brand and model for around $100?

Garmin eTrex H?

The Etrex is simple rugged and cheap. I owned one and never had a problem with it. It may not lock on to satelites as quick as a WAAS enabled one or have an electronic compass. It has 500 waypoints,routes, and track features.

I use an Etrex backed with an old Silva compass.

I have used my E-trex Legend for about 8 years now. I use rechargeable bateries & carry an extra set when I hunt. I have the case w/ a belt clip and keep it on my bib strap so it points up. It does loose connection from time to time but usually regains the fix quickly...

I'd recomend any e-trex to the price watching hunter but I feel the newer 60csx would be a good investment and worth saving for.

I got a Garmin Venture HC from Walmart on line for $130 give or take, but it has a colored screen, and does more than I know how to do.
It gets satelites quick and is very accurate.
