I wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions for a decent handheld GPS device for around or under $100. Thank you in advance for the help.

It might help if you describe features you are looking for. Some people want maps and others just want to record where they have been.

To jump start you, take a look at this thread from late last year.

Along this line, what are suggested App Store downloadable maps to navigate and walk the Outer Mountain Loop?  Thanks

what ever you end up with you must make sure it has an offline mode because there is no cell service to be relied upon on many parts of the trail. Granted there is some service in a few spots, but not reliable.
