Default any large screen, handheld GPS?

I'm looking for a portable GPS that I can use for hiking, trail riding etc, but still has a large enough screen that i can use for navi in a car, and I also need it to be cabaple of loading lake maps (are all GPS capable of that)?

I'm basically just looking for a GPS that does everything lol. I had an Etrex Vista, and the screen on that was too small.

For hiking and trail riding and able to upload lake maps. Larger screen than eTrex's.

For a modest price you can pick up a Garmin GPSMAP 76 series (or 60 series) unit (C, Cx, CS, CSx). Slightly larger screen than eTrex's and very clear. Waterproof and the 76 series float. Great for hiking (and geocaching). Easy ability to upload extra mapsets and change between them...you just have to know that memory may become an issue if you are uploading additional mapsets. The "x" models have upgradeable SD cards so memory is not an issue. I have a Garmin GPSMAP76C (fixed 115 MB of memory) and I have City and Topo maps in it for all of Michigan and parts of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, and Canada. A pair of AA batteries lasts for 30 hours of continuous use in my unit (but only about 20 hours in a CS unit due to the extra power demand of the digital compass and electronic barometer).
