    the $100 etrax will do what you want just fine. I like the Garmin forerunner 201 (big wrist watch) cause it straps to the bars. $149 but can be found cheaper https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=230&ra=true

    I'm running an 04 GTX SC LTD..Has the Garmin GPSmap 76 installed..works really well! The nice think about it is that it mounts right in front of you. Floats too! (can be ordered for a number of other skis besides the GTX) I also have the Etrex hand held.IT also works well except for having to hold it while riding.

    I guess it depends on $...

    Cheers

    Good Price. I think the only diff is the 101 uses AAA batteries and the 201 is rechargable(and can sink to PC).
