    i mount a garmin 60csx on my bars, you get what you pay for, it's a color screen, shock proof, and water proof, i've dipped this thing in the creek more than a few times to clean off all of the mud! if you get a cheap one you'll probably be in the market for a replacment in a few months, ATV's are hard on these things

    I have a Garmin Etrex Legend. Like Kessler89 says, "You get what you pay for". The garmins are made to take a licking and keeping on ticking.

    I use a garmin dakota 20 mounted in my bar pad. I load custom maps for the areas I go and have been pretty happy with it.

    Use a Garmin 62s, which is a newer version of the Garmin 60 series. It has a color screen, better compass and barometer, etc. As people have mentioned, you get what you pay for, and mine gets constantly knocked around on the ATV without any problems. The software for your computer kind of sucks, but the unit is solid.
