The Colorado 300 is very nice (I have some minor complaints about how
the click wheel navigation works, but I've gotten used to it) and the
APRS support is great. With the Tracker2 (and probably eventually other
APRS devices) you'll get appropriate symbols, altitudes, and comment
text for each station.
The topo maps are MUCH more readable than the ones I've used on older
models - the larger screen area and resolution helps a lot. Here are a
few screen shots...
