What GPS has a big display?
Hey everyone - I have a Garmin Etrex but the numbers are too small to read while moving (I am old and need reading glasses!). Some of you use GPS units where the display numbers are big. Some of these units look like they have velcro loops to mount on the handlebars, others look like they are read on their side. What do you guys recommend? Thanks!

I saw a Garmin 201. I think it has what I want. It straps nicely to handlebar pad.

Thanks everyone for your feedback. I bought a Garmin Fortrex 301 from Amazon. It has a very large MPH display and tracks top speed, distance, etc. I strap it on the handlebar pad and can read it easily. Cost was very reasonable.
