requirements:

  • works on mac / linux?
  • mini usb charging
  • at least 25 hours battery life or 12 hours + standard batteries (AA, AAA) (without bluetooth)
  • logging mode, device mode, and both (q1000 definitely supports this, do others?)
  • number of waypoints

Not sure about exact features, more costly, but nice since it has a screen to show position / compass

Has an sd card slot.

  • uses the older sirfstar chipset, may not be as fast / accurate
  • requires a lot of manual intervention?
