I thoroughly recommend the Garmin Geko 201. It's a bit old these days, but
it's simple to operate, well-designed, robust, waterproof, etc. You will
need an interface cable, but you can get a cheap one from Pfranc, or make one
with a piece of stiff plastic.
Mine has travelled for nearly 17000km (not just for OSM!!). That's a lot of
short trips, and 8000km in Australia. :)
Google is your friend, so please research this model.
 and some wire and stuff.
