I have the Garmin 60CSx for hiking and car use. The screen is fairly large and easy to read, backlit (if you want), and the reception is exceptional both under trees on the mountain and inside the car. You can get a little suction cup mount to put it on your windshield if you want it to be easier to access.
The 60CSx does autorouting, provided you have a detailed basemap. But what's nice is that the TopoCanada mapset shows topography and has roads and streets with routing information. When I'm driving, I set the directions to 'follow road' and when I'm hiking, I set it to 'off-road'.
There are some quirks, but overall, I'm quite happy with this unit.
