[OSM-talk] handheld gps unit

Do you know how this compares to the newer touch screen Garmin devices 
(Dakota, Oregan, Montana)? I know that upon release the GPS performance 
(read "Accuracy") of the touch devices was below the Vista HCx. 
Wondering if they could fix that via firmware upgrades or even 
improvements to the hardware.

I really liked my Vista HCx, because of the very fast time to fix, the 
high accuracy and the fact that it actually had a scrollable map 
(something the Geko is lacking). But then the usability with that small 
joystick was just... bad when using the map.
