    What GPS do you use?

    I am looking to get a GPS this spring to take on rides this year. My main focus is ease of use, easy to read and easy to find my way back to the dock after a long ride through the bayous. Do most people use hand helds? Does anyone have the larger mounted ones that also display water depth?

    I like the Fortrex 201 for ease of use and finding my way back down new trails. Very small and can be worn on your wrist.

    Same size but a little cheaper is the Forunner 101. I use it for testing and isn't a big deal if lost. I take the wrist strap off and just velcro it where I need.

    I have used each and there is no difference other than replacing batteries in the 101 VS recharging the 201.
    Cheap too so no big deal if one gets lost.
