Check this Garmin unit out.
www.garmin.com/products/sp340/

That should keep her from getting lost.
Garmin has some other units also that are reasonably priced as well.

I've got the GPS V, which I use on the boat (for now) and in the truck, as well as for hunting. The unit works quite well and the mapsource software is great for viewing and marking points. The biggest drawback with the GPS V is the screen size. I am mainly on freshwater lakes that I know quite well, so the only real navigational infomation I have for those are the couple of tight channels going into a few coves that I frequent. In the truck the navigation portion of it is quite useful. My favorite aspect of it in the truck is being able to view what the nearing exits have to offer (food, hotels, fuel, ect.).

I personally use the GPS V as well. The better units are the Garmin C320, C330, C340 in august and the 276C and 376C. The garmin C series is for Vehical ONLY..

I know you asked about Garmin but I've done some research and you also ought to look at TomTom.
