Again, simplecity is key here being that it's a gift for my old man...
My vote is for the Garmin also. Had the GPSIII+ a couple yrs back and it was the best in my opinion. Now have a fixed mount just for the screen size. Both used the Mapsource that could be downloaded from your home PC for the real small details of both on land and water.
Highly reccommend any with the mapping. Anything thing less is just a handheld speedo.
