I assume this is for a jetski.

If so then need to look at where he will mount it - depends on make and model of jetski as to where best to mount.
Then you need to know if needs maps in high detail or just lower resolution.
Some have external GPS antennas which are great for boats that have the GPS unit under cover but if not under cover then internnal GPS antenna easier.
Some models have inbuilt maps (usually the cheaper ones) and some have maps on a SD memory card that comes separate (about $250 for Navionics Auckland area maps)
Your price range is not too high so selection of GPS will be limited to either Black and white with internal low res maps.
Found some units here : http://www.absolutemarine.co.nz/products/?id=3635

if you don't mind buying from USA and then getting a NZ chart then try one of these links
http://www.fishfinder-store.com/gpsfishfinders.html

get back to us or anyone else that replies or use the personal message button and I'll reply by email as I know soimeone that got me a Eagle Fishelite 640C (external GPS with fishfinder) including Nautipath maps of NZ/Aust for just over $1000 so may be able to ask him for you - the included maps saves you quite a bit of money and the 640C is a nice unit as installed on my jetski with fishfinder transducer on the back
