I am looking to buy a handheld GPS for christmas. I would like to save some $$$ and buy one without an aviation database. I plan to use it only for emergency backup and general position awareness. Anybody have recommendations? Your like/dislikes would be very helpful in deciding which one to go with. Also, is it worth it to spend the extra $$$ on one with aviation database, for my purposes? I have been looking in the $150-250 range.
