Define cheap and also small.

Are you after a pocket model that can be mounted and perhaps powered by 12v? This is the ideal in performance for size I reckon.

Or are you after the least frills, with just a lat/long displayed on a black and white screen?

There is a RIB.net member with a Raymarine plotter for sale, not sure if that will be either small enough or cheap enough though.

Garmin still do a bog standard fixed GPS, the 152H at about 150 quid new.

Plenty of waterproof hillwalking units out there for Sub 80. If you want the opportunity to get it to talk to a VHF for some DSC, Garmin 72 or 76s do that as a standard feature.

Garmin 192C, 5" screen colour chartplotter with external aerial. Lightly used and original box, manuals etc. included. 250 + postage.
Ideal for fitting on the top of a console.

You should be able to get a brand new Garmin 451 for just over your budget, 475.00 perhaps.

Second hand wise, there is a RIB.netter with a Raymarine plotter for sale - not sure of the price but you could make him an offer and see what happens.
