I'm looking for the most versatile/accurate/reliable/economical GPS device out there that doesn't cost MUCH over $200.

Anybody know?

Your GPS requirements are diverse. Most GPS units that are good for outdoors/hunting, aren't particularly good for use in cars. If there is one that is passable at all functions it is the Garmin GPS V. I have one, and I use it almost exclusively in my car. In fact I'm loading map data into it right now.

This GPS is accurate and supports WAAS. The screen flips orientation between handheld and dash mode and it comes with a mount for your dash. It comes with mapping, route and waypoint management software. I think the cable is even included. It's on Amazon.com for $245. It's a stout little unit.

Lowrance.
I've got a ifinder H2O that I picked up for $169. a week ago. link to GPS
12-parallel channel GPS+WAAS receiver. Waterproof to IPX7 standard. An IPX7 designation means the GPS case can withstand accidental immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. I figure if I'm out and it starts raining it should still work.

In the short time I've had it accuracy looks to be on the average to be about 30'. At least that is what the GPS is telling me what the accuracy is. The display updates fast. It has plotted out me changing lanes going down the road. The down side is that it only displays hiways in town. I'm going to get the $100.00 mapping software and memory to show side streets for urban travel.
