rbh1515 is on a distinguished road

I have been sailing for years, but I think I need to get into the 21st century and buy a GPS. This is what I think I would use it for. I am predominantly daysailing on a 26'' sailboat on Lake Michigan. The fog can roll in unexpectedly especially in the spring.

1) What features should I look for in a unit?

2) What price range would I be paying for a unit with these features?

3) What brands should I look at, and are there any I should stay away from, or any that are easier to use?

Thanks for all input.
