    Anyone check out the Garmin Foretrex 201 Personal GPS?

    All you GPS wiz-bangs, did you guys check out the Garmin Foretrex 201 Personal GPS? It is worn like a watch, on your wrist? Would this make a good GPS if you don`t have the limited glove box?

    I just e-mail Garmin as to wether the unit can tell time and speed!?...PR...

    Don't use it, it's not waterproof as they say it.
    "Waterproof: IEC 60529 IPX-7 standards (submersible in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes)" Bullshit!!!
    Mine broke after two months

    I dont think anything is completely waterproof...I have a Foretrex 201, KNR has one and Fercho has a Forerunner with many hours on them and they are still working fine

    That`s the model I was asking about! Does it tell the time and speed? How easy is it to read? and How do you like it?

    What can you say about it?...PR...

    PR -- Don't let the lack of the limited glove box limit your gps choice. I don't have the limited glove box on my 2000RX. I glued velcro to the back of the Garmin Legend and to my glove box and it holds quite well; I also secure the gps strap to the ski, just in case, but have never needed it. There is also a handlebar mount that a number of people use, I'm sure someone can post info on that.

    I like the 201 because of the size and you can change the screen to read whatever you want...time, trip odo, moving average, pan and trace back, track log, compass, lat, long and of course speed and MAX speed
