GPS & Canadian Tours..

I'm thinking of getting a GPS but want to make sure that it can provide decent maps for Canada. I was curious if anyone has one or has used one. And if so, what model?

My Father in law has a Garmin etrex (can't remember the model) that worked with Blue Chart. We were able to preview the maps. We were looking at maps in Newfoundland, and they seemed pretty decent. However, the Blue chart maps cost additional $ after you buy the actual GPS unit.

No experience using it on the road, though. Personnally, I use a small garmin Foretrex along with a paper map.
