[OSGeo-Discuss] Question on relatively cheap GPS's for educational purposes

I'm trying to identify GPS' to purchase for our institution for
teaching that are capable of using and displaying

GeoTiff orthophotos or
JPG 2000 or
MrSid images

from our state government GIS website. Our budget is pretty small and
we want to get at least 10, so I'm hoping for something in the US
$200-300 range.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance,
