Inexpensive GPS

I have had a Bushnell Backtrack for a few years and I don't trust it. Number one; it takes forever to find a satellite and number two; if I was in really brushy country (mountain laurel for example) I could be circling my truck for hours since it won't take me directly to it. Of course, now I can press that horn button on my new vehicle key fob, once I realize I've been circling.:$

I use a Suunto sports watch.  I use it for cycling, Triathlons, skiing, backpacking, boating, and hunting.  It holds a pile of waypoints, is easy to figure out, and just a quick glance at my wrist gets me back to the truck.  I don't know if you do other sports so while this is a slightly more expensive option, I can use it for a variety of activities.

I've thought about one of the Garmin watches for hiking for this reason. 

 

Used ones can be had pretty cheap.
