    I ran a 201 for a season. Worked well, but water would get behind the screen and never seemed to come out. I upgraded to an extrex venture HC and I love it. 2 seasons of riding in the salt and the gps is as good as new.

    Yes they are water resitant. But they do not float. I use the 101 because it uses aaa batteries.

    The Forerunner series is pretty basic, no maps. But they do have a back to start funtion. I mainly use it to record speed and distance and it is small enough to stap to my handle bars.
