I want to get a basic gps for fishing. I had a basic Garmin 12xl. The internal battery went dead, dont know if they replace them any more. thinking of up grading to show more things, like borders, chips etc. I dont plan on hunting out west. Any ideas?

if you're talking just for fishing, take a look at the Navionic's app ...

www.navionics.com/usa/apps/navionics-boating

Not sure they still sell them but I have a Delorme PN60. It is/was awesome. I have it as a backup to my fishfinder. I bought it because it took a Navionics Hotmap chip (still does). Used it several years without issue. Pretty awesome unit. Could also download maps. 

Now a smart phone can do about the same things now. It runs on lithium 2A batteries. Usually could get a week of full time use out of it. 

Solid unit. PM if you are interested as I would part with it for the right price. Or I plan on keeping it for a backup as I can just pop the map chip into it and go.

You can find good deals on used units on amazon. Otherwise you could try lowrance.

yes, hand held. They all seem so expensive and set up for hunting out west or geo caching

I'm assuming you're talking about handhelds. I would stick with the garmin units. They have their own lake chips that are pretty good.
