GPS Recomendations?

I am looking into purchasing a GPS for the Jeep. I'm looking for one that will be able to map trails and that will do good on street and off road. Anyone have any recommendations?

Garmin GPSMAP 60 CSx. Big color screen, geocache ready, topo ready. Lot of bang for the buck.

I don't know if it has topo but if you can get your hands on a never lost gps it would be insane. I personally want one just for its great street navigation.

I have a Garmin 60Cx I have topo and street maps for it plus..... I Geocache with it and I will tell you the best part about is this
when you have it on, it tracks every move, what I mean by this is if you walk strate for, say 20' then go left for 15 ' or even walk in a circle it keeps track of that, Just two weeks ago I was up in the laguna mountain near the San Diego area out geocaching. The rain and the clouds moved in fast,
I was hiking about 4 miles from where we parked the clouds / fog was so thick you could not see more than 100' in front of you and at this point we where in a pasture type area no trails to fallow, if I didn't have my GPS with this feature I would probably still be there.
All I had to do was just zoom in on the gps screen and follow back the dotted line it had draw on it's own as we where hicking. I was so glad it had this feature and so was my Daughter and friends

Garmin also has great customer service to that another story for a later day
