    Question GPS-What is a good model to bring on ski?

    I am a novice rider, but always wantedto be able to see the "true" speed of my ski. Have any thoughts on a good GPS? Aren't there GPS watches?

    I use the Garmin Foretrex 201 which displays max speed and current speed. The max speed feature has a reset and the speed screen has two different modes. It is very nice, it comes with a lithium battery and a wrist strap, I also ordered a handle bar mount when I got mine to be able to mount it on the bars on my ski. I got the whole set up on ebay for about $130 or you can buy just the gps from academy for $169+ tax...

    I use the Garmin Forunner 201. Pretty affordable. You can get one anywhere from 85.00-115.00 shipped to your door on Ebay.

    If you want it for a speedo, I'd go for the 201. I have a 60CS on my XLL, but I like the navigation features and maps. It cost about $250 more though.

    Once again GREEN HULK FORUM comes through! Thanks for the info guys! I just wish there were more people interested in PWC's up in the Northeast. I guess the ones that really love it move to the warmer climate!

    Where are you looking? We had 14 riders last May for a quick 200 mile ride on the Hudson (zip 12550).
