I've upgraded from an eTrex Vista to an Edge 305, which is a step change 
in technology due to the inclusion of a Sirf StarIII chip. Suddenly I 
can get a signal in the city centre and under tree cover. In the Garmin 
GPSMAP range you're looking at the Cx and CSx models to get the Sirf 
chip. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the relative accuracy of the 
chip in the older GPSMAP models to the Sirf.
