Doing some digging I'm seeing there is the Garmin 60Csx and 62Cs. If compared to the Colorado, which would work best? I know these questions are a bit all over the place, but I just don't know and have been out of the GPS realm for a while.
The Colorado's been discontinued for some time now but it's still got a lot of the features you'd want in a gps. It's almost as good as a 62 since it has similar capabilities. Aside from the power which comes from the usb cable, it's better than a 60CSx.

With the right maps, it would do auto routing. OSM maps are auto routing so find those and load them up. They're free.
