I have an old XL12 too, and it's great. At some point, I might go for a bells and whistles model, but you did get the right brand. I know folks who have etrex and they like them. About 12 years ago, I bought a used XL 12 for $50, and when I sent it back to the company for repair because it wasn't saving waypoints, Garmin sent me a brand new one (no charge). I got a GPS that sold (back then) for $350 for $50! Good luck with your new tool.
