Simple, tiny, and runs 12 hours on two AAA batteries. No maps, but it supports upload/download of waypoints and routes with an optional serial cable. Supports NMEA and the faster Garmin interface standards. Cheap, fast, and reliable. Loaded with lithium batteries, it’s my choice for the gadget bag.
