I usually use my phone. If you have a smart phone you can load a speedometer app in it and use that. If not go to west marine or whatever you have close by that sells them and get a feel for what you want. Then write down the model number and search for it online cheaper. That's what I would do. I know its not much help but I hope it helps somewhat.

eTrex Legend is $116.54 @ Wal-Mart
Foretrex 201 has been discontinued according to the Garmin website but you can still find on eBay & possibly some retailers - Should run abt $100~$115.
The advantage of the 201 is it has a strap so you can wear it on your arm. The Legend does have an optional handlebar mount if you prefer it that way.

I have Garmin Rino 130s and 530s on my 'skis which give me a GPS/Map/Radio and I can see everyone else's location on the screen to mine. They have a new yellow Rino 110 that is cheap on Ebay. I have the handlebar mount so I don't have to look down.

Thanks all for the suggestions. They all sound good. JRINJAX I might be seeing you if Joey decides to come down to get the hull.

I use the Garmin Colorado... it has the marine SW in it so i am fine on the water. I also have the Lakes SW it will help me on the lakes and smaller bodies of water as well as on the sound and the ocean. I like to Geocache so with the TOPO SW i'm good to go there too.
Hope it helps..

I used to have that model... I sold it and traded up to the Garmin Colorado.. it's a great unit.. i just wanted something a wee bit smaller. Yes, There is a handle bar mount for the Colorado i dont know about the 76 csx.. which is on sale i believe.
