Ouch! Wonder if the thieves knew what it was, or just picked it
up as a shiny electronic item. Or, maybe even a roll of film,
which it strangely resembles.

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GPS_Reviews , just in case
you are not aware of it.

We tried out several models, and were happy with the Holux, the
Globalsat DG-100, and the Amod AGL-3080 (all chosen through the
above Wiki page). All of these are loggers, and do not have maps. If
I remember correctly, the latter two have significantly higher
storage capacity.

We are in Delhi, but after trying locally, we just opted to order
from http://www.semsons.com/ . You could try to get other buyers
together in order to share shipping.
