I've noted a significant downward trend in the price of Garmin eTrex units
over the last couple of months. For instance, you can now pick up a Garmin
eTrex Legend HCx, which has the newer high sensitivity receiver and can
display OSM mapping (using mkgmap) for £140 including a 2GB micro SD card.

That might still be twice the price of a basic non map logging setup and you
may still be able to get cheaper prices outside the UK or by bidding for a
non European model on ebay but it's still a big change in the market since

If you were thinking of dipping your toe in the OSM mapping game then it's
probably never been better to do so.
