    Thumbs up

    I use the Garmin Foretrex 101.It is waterproof,fits on your wrist like a watch.Can store hundreds of waypoints.I like the speed mode because it has full screen #s.Easy to read even at W.O.T.

    Thats the same one I use too. Strap it to your wrist and off you go.

    I had the foretrex 101 till it went swimming then replaced it with a forerunner 201. The 201 is rechargeable, either can be strapped on the handlebar of your 150. I prefered the screen setup on the fortrex over the forerunner.

    Yeah it was dark but i was determined to get some tunning done I got within 2 feet of a no wake bouy and decided it was time to quit. Meeting a no wake bouy at 75+ mph probably wouldnt have turned out so well for me

    damn digger .. bet that was interesting. saw a guy on a 250 hit a bouy at about 50 and thats was during the day time. Needless to say he won't be trying that again. he survived but no longer owns a ski.
    I use a garmin GPS map 76 and mount it to the top of the glove box on my 15f. I tried one of the wrist type and just didn't . or should i say couldn't get used to it. Its down loadable to the lap top so i can keep up with the trips, speed and all the other stuff thats worth remembering.
