Handheld-colour-4"

Looking for the above type of GPS unit.

4"? I know, I know. But my eyes aren't what they used to be.
Garmin do do them but they are hideously expensive.

Are there any other brands? Preferably if they take Garmin Topo maps.

Memory map and Garmin here, but Google may throw up more if you search for handheld GPS?
