Hello,
I would like to have a GPS to use in New Mexico when I am prospecting. It mostly involves knowing where I am going to drive to (lat & long) then I get out and hike into the area I want to look over.
A lot of the roads aren't on a regular map but are on topo maps.
Could somebody recommend a GPS and software that would get the job done and not break the bank?
Thanks.

Can't help you on the GPS, but from your comment I would recommend finding the Historical Atlas of New Mexico . I haven't seen our copy in a few years, but it had a lot of information that I think you might be interested in.

Garmin,loaded with their topo maps, http://www.garmin.com/en-US/maps/updates/?/outdoor. I am a geologist and use mine constantly for driving & leases. Get the lifetime update too.
