Dakota 20 or what else to consider?

I'm just getting started in GPS and have looked at the Dakota 20 on youtube. I like it's touchscreen and ease of use. It looks like a good place to start for some geocaching and some gravel road exploration to set way points and create a route to easily get back to the points you set. I also like the price point of the Dakota 20. Is there a similar unit that might be a bit larger and may offer a battery/hardwire option? Not sure I need any more features at this point but a bit larger screen might be nice. I do like a touch screen. Any others to consider?

Thanks.

It's not a Touch Screen, but the 78 line has the best mix of capabilities and also the Garmin 4 pin rugged connector.

GPSCity has the 78S for $280 but it often goes on sale.
