Details of Garmin's upcoming GPS range refresh have been revealed at Buy.com, suggesting a new range of handheld GPS receivers.  The Oregon 200 will include a 3-inch color touchscreen (that's outdoor-readable), high-sensitivity GPS, electronic compass, barometric altimeter and temperature sensor.  Map data will be courtesy of a 3D basemap as well as a digital elevation model, so hills shouldn't be too much of a surprise, and the Oregon is waterproof.
