I have a Delorme Earthmate PN 40 handheld that works very well. One of the pluses of the unit is that it comes with mapping software for the PC and a $20 credit for downloading maps also. After I ran that out a $30 a year subscription lets you download anything from the library...NOAA nav charts, topo maps, arial photography, free updates, etc. All the stuff that you have to pay through the nose for with garmin. Also had tide tables and so forth.
The newer version even has sat based text and distress messaging I believe
