Garmin Foretrex 201 is awesome if you want something small and portable.  I
put it on my wrist, made a long cable with 1/32" conncetors on both ends.

Just make sure to get the 201 which is rechargeable or if you get the 101 be
prepared with extra batteries.

This is on Ebay usually under $100.  It is great when I bike, jog or walk
around ham fests. 

Now if you don't want it that portable, then pickup a simple E-trex from
Garmin and just toss it in the dash.  I believe RPC Electronics has the
cables for that to the d7a directly.  I use a Garmin Vista in this capacity.

Note, these two will give you waypoints on them of other stations, but not
mapping capabilities.
