Which GPS To Buy
Load of you out there are using GPS on your ski and I am looking at buying one, are you all using the same type? If so which unit are you using.
I would rather buy from a recommendation than buy something which is no use.

Garmin eTrex Legend is a great one. I really like mine. It is mounted to the handlebars.

I just wrap my forerunner around my bar pad. You can also wear it like a watch.

I use a Garmin 76 CSX, color, backlight (came in handy one day in Outer Banks in 6 foot seas as it got dark trying to make our way back) and fully detailed like the bigger units in boats (max speed, trip odometer, compass, known depth, sonar input, routes, known obstructions etc). Mounted on the factory location on the glove box door. Only complain, the screen is small....otherwise a great unit IMO.
