    Go to this link: http://www.garmin.com/aboutGPS/
    It should answer all of your questions except about cost.

    The cost is merely the receiver and software necessary.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      1.) Cost can vary greatly. If you already have a computer, all you need is a simple serial GPS. About $30 US, USB can go much higher with better features.

      2.)Not difficult if you don't need to split it to different applications. If all you need is a simple mapping program, plug in GPS, turn on tracking, and away you go.

      3.)Do you already know your way around? No usefulness at all then. If you are gonna use it for directions, I've found it to be pretty useful.
