You will be hard pressed to find a new GPS unit for that price that has a larger screen.
Being you have a Garmin, I would stay with a Garmin system, as you would not have to relearn the nomenclature of another brand.
The closest thing to meeting your price range would be a Garmin model GPSMAP 64. I would order it with the option of having preloaded topographical maps. I believe that it is the GPSMAP 64st model. The ST means that it has sensors and topo mapping.
It will put you a little above your listed spending, but it is a super unit and would give you most if not all the maps you would need.
Check it out on the Garmin web site at www.garmin.com
