    What GPS to get

    I am looking for a cheap waterproof GPS for my ski. I dont want a fancy one I have GPS in my truck. I only want it to check my speed and maybe find the way back to the marina when i am on a new lake. Where and how are you guys mounting them on you ultras

    i was looking at this one :

    Garmin Foretrex 201 will do everything you want. You can get a good deal on ebay. Mount it on the glove box lid.

    Mine works well in the compartment. I don't know about others.
