I'm curious as to what the other teams are using these days.

How many Squadrons have bought a handheld gps unit like you mention, or maybe Wing issue? I don't know of any.

Are we just talking about personal gear here? In which case, as others have mentioned, just whatever you happen to have, that works.

I have an old Garmin somewhere that I used in rental steam gauge planes back in the early 2000s, for simple Direct To courses. Worked great.  As soon as one of the planes got a Garmin 430 installed, and about that time I got my first iPhone, and haven't looked back. The handheld never came back out.
