    I use a Garmin Oregon 450 - touch screen, you can load topos & uses mini sd cards.
    My friend Todd swears by his Garmin 60csx. Its a non touch screen but has expansion slots etc.
    We both have downloaded trail maps for snowmobiling & topo maps.
    As far as mounts, we both use ram mounts.

    I use it on my dual-sport bike. Like it a lot. It's pretty much just like the 60CSx you posted. I'd think in the truck you'd want something w/ a bigger screen though.

    I have a Delorme PN-6o I use for hiking/fishing/drift boat; love the unit but the screen is small. Definitely too small to use efficiently in a vehicle, especially a moving one.

    No use for those things anymore, phones are far stronger. This is, provided you get one that doesn't rely on A-GPS. I know the Androids rely on data for Almanac data, so as long as they're left on, they work fine.
