    Video/GPS?

    Recently I watched a video that was on here of a rider on a SeaDoo. Looked like it was filmed using a gopro on a chesty mount. The shot showed a GPS mounted over the top right side of the cluster. I have searched and searched but can not find this video to save my life. What I want to know is what model GPS it was? It was fairly compact in size and looked to pretty cleanly display the speed. I seem to remember a bridge in the video for some reason. For some reason I keep thinking it may have been a TX rider. Anybody got any ideas what video that was.

    Not sure about the video. But I can say that the least exspensive GPS with a very good display that mounts real simple & looks good good is the Etrex. several members on GH have them & love em! P.S. Can get one for around $100

    If it was small and compact enough it could have just been a Garmin Forerunner just to display accurate speed, I had one, I think I know what video you're talking about

    It was bigger than a watch. I seem to remember it being about the width of half of the cluster possibly.

    Garmin Forerunner - Maybe a 101 or a 201 or a 301 Model most people use

    Yeah, most likely a forerunner. Pretty sure I know what video you're talking about. Did it look like this?

    I see that now. I think that's what it was. I just wish I could find the video so I could see for sure

    I ended up buying a Garmin Etrex 20 at a pawn shop today. I laughed at the guy when he told me it was 129 bucks. Told him I could buy one brand new for that price and he instantly told me it was brand new, but he would come down to 75 for it. All in all I think I got a smokin deal for it at 60 bucks, and trading in a cheap wakeboard that I dont use anymore.

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    Almost certain this is the video you were talking about.
