Default best cheap GPS

Does anyone have any advice on what is currently the best (most reliable, best quality) cheap GPS? I'm looking for either a very basic GPS (numbers only) or a low-end map. Thanks.

Last year I put a Standard Horizon CP150 on my boat. It does a great job for the money. Unit was $399 and the c-map card for my area was $99. I think you can find the unit for $369 if you look around. I would highly recommend it. As far as I know it is the least expensive mapping unit out there but works great for me.

2 options
boaters world is blowing out the icom gp 360 ml for 299 bucks, u cant beat that price for a full chart plotter

and consumer marine is blowing out the lowrance x16 for 950 bucks..ive used this unit and it is very good

hope this helps

Have you looked on ebay. There are tons of new and used basic gps units. Without and witout charting.
You should have no trouble picking one up for 100 bucks or so.
Give it a peek.

Take a look at the Garmin model 152 (fixed mount, not a hand held unit). Should be around $300 from any of the catalogs/websites.

Take a look at the Garmin 12. For about $150.00, you can't beat it.
