    Question Handheld GPS with Top Speed Feature

    Does anyone own and recommend a specific GPS with the TOP SPEED Function and Current Speed Mode. I have seen some throughout other thread but I figured it would be good to have one especially for GPS because many people I know want to buy a GPS for their skis... Thanks

    I mean GPS in the Thread heading, sorry for the GSP..

    All the 150+ dollar gps' have top speed and current speed and most will let you program your screen to see the fields you want to see at the same time, like odometer for trip, clock, time moving, time stopped, etc...all sorts of stuff is available to set it up for. Just pick the one you like...I like the colored Garmin 76

    Cool

    I just ordered the Garmin gpsmaps 76s, i'll let you know how it works. I chose that one cause its waterproof and floats.

    The Garmin GPS76 csx is great! It has a color display and memory. For around $100 you can buy the navigator software and download detalied info for your area or areas you will be in when going on a trip. You can enter an address and the gps will lead you right there. Also has info on nearest gas stations, hotels and anything else you can imagine. I use mine almost daily, then velcro it to my ski when I go out on the river. I had the Garmin E-trex previously. A good unit, but not even close to the 76.

    Man you guys are hardcore to need even half the features those units have! On my boat I dont use all the features on my northstar radar/gps/chartplotter unit which is way overkill too but "you gotta have it"!! On my ski GPS all I need is speed!
