What's the deal with this GPS?  Does it have some new, cool feature?

Looks like the screen has more than twice the pixles, and 30% more diagonal, but the tradeoff is you loose 10 hours of run time on the batteries, and pay much more.

Not sure if that is worth it or not.

It also comes with topo maps of the entire U.S. preloaded, and has a "paperless" caching system if your into Geocaching. I'm picking one up as soon as I see the price come down some.

I don't know what the deal is with GPS's...but it seems like the prices never "go down".

I bought my Garmin Etrex around 4 years ago for $99.......they are still selling for $99.

GPS now is offering it for $530 starting in mid-February so that will be enough of a drop for me.
