Hey Sir-Cache-a-Lot,

Boy will you get tired of typing that in all the time! >grin<

I don't feel qualified to talk about Magellan products, I've never used 
them, but in the price range you've quoted you should have no trouble 
getting a good Garmin eTrex model. There's been a rash of GPS MAP60CS 
purchases lately so you might find a Legend or a Vista model available for 
under $200. Check the groundspeak forums marketplace page for 'bargains'.

Whatever model you settle on should have lots of memory so that you can 
download maps. This is very handy locally, but extremely valuable if you're 
traveling in my experience.  The map software is often available from other 
geocachers.

Good luck, and I hope to see you at the "Did I cache your name? 26 Feb. 
2005" Event cache.
