    Angry Garmin GPS

    For anyone that wants a Garmin Forerunner or Foretrex 101 or 201, buy it now if you can find one. Looks like Garmin is not making them anymore. It looks like they are still making the 301 series, but not the 101 and 201's

    I wonder if they will still rebuild them to new spec?

    Wouldnt see why not. Mine kept shuting off by itself, so went looking for another, found one, but on Garmins site when you check the find a dealer link, it says "no online dealers" And all my normal sites show them to be out of stock and unavailable.

    Question Which is better?????

    What gps is the best that you have had experience with? I was looking into the foretrex 101 or the forerunner 201. I was just wanting some opinions before I go make a purchase.

    I have been using the forerunners, but I know some people that use the foretrex. Dont think there is to much dif between the two. The 101 series in both models uses aaa batteries, were as the 201 series uses rechargable's. I prefer aaa, but some people prefer rechargable. Dont think you can go wrong with either.

    It looks like they don't make the 101, 201 or 301 anymore. They're all listed on the discontinued page now.

    I found a 301 on ebay last year for ~$90, but lost one of the pins for the strap when I go bucked off my GPR. I've been meaning to order a replacement...hope they still have spare parts available.

    That blows, when I looked at Garmins site a few weeks ago it looked like they were still going to make the 301's. You can prob still find them. I found another forerunner 101 through Amazon recently.

    Forgot, I lost a pin for my 101. I ended up using one for a watch.
