This isn't strictly birding, but some folks on this list are likely to be
GPS users. 

I'm thinking of buying a hand-held GPS unit (low end Garmin or Magellan,
most likely) for fixing locations of surveys, odd birds, etc. in the bush,
and for navigation & simple mapping in the bush.  Hopefully it would be
capable of downloading/uploading from a PC as well. 

Do any Ozbirders have experience with any particular GPS units & have
recommendations, warnings, other advice to offer?
