What GPS to buy

So, My Aera was lifted from my rental vehicle in Memphis. So there is an Aera on the Market cheap in Memphis right now if you can find it, I'd look around the university area. Now Im torn, after buying the Aera 500 I really wished that I had of gone the XM weather route and was debating selling it and upgrading. Is there any other handheld GPS that youd pass over the Aera for? I have flown with a 496 before and I would have to take the Aera instead of that so any non garmin units worth looking at?
