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...
