First, you HAVE to check out this page: http://joe.mehaffey.com/
Tons of info on GPS. Probably too much. But wade through what you can, and read about all the basics. It's pretty much a gold mine of info on GPS, especially opinions and stats on all kinds of models. A review on the 315 is here- http://joe.mehaffey.com/mag-315.htm
You can't go wrong with Magellan. Our first unit (my dad and I) was the 2000 (I think. Maybe the 3000). My dad still uses it extensively while duck hunting. I recently got a Garmin 12map. Mainly because of what I was using a gps for- driving. But also quite a bit of marine and hiking use. I didn't think I'd use mine much for roadtrips, but it's now a majority of its use. While it's not vital, you should give some thought to what you know you immediately want to use a gps for, and also what you might use it for in the future. Look for features that will complement that.
