Been great for me.

Eric Romilly, Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: At the time of purchase, it was the lightest GPS on the market with the features I need. I only use it for wilderness canoeing, so I only use a handful of it's features.

Excellent Hang Gliding companion. Easy to read displays.

wgengland0117, Ebay
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought my original one of these at Aldi about 5 years ago, for a steal then, around $90 after tax, and I used it for geo-caching, hiking, but mostly for hang gliding. I am a novice so I haven't flown many long flights, but this little unit is ideal for hang gliding, with it being wrist-wearable. The wrist band can even be used to mount it to a hang glider base tube, with a little ingenuity.

Good Small GPS that uses external AAA batteries

Steven, Amazon
14 March 2010
  • Summary: This is a good small GPS, but the Etrex Vista series (larger) is better for work use. This little one will do a lot for it's size. I've had it for a couple of years now and prefer it to the upgraded internal battery models due to direct replacement of batteries on the go. The Screen is small, but it will show you the basics needed or you can scroll through it. You can change the fields values on the navigation screen to customize it.

My Garmin Story: Trying to drown a Foretrex 101

B. Belcher "belcher1035", Amazon
17 August 2009
  • Summary: Since the Foretrex 101 has been around for a while, and there are plenty of other reviews you can read, I thought I'd just tell a little story about mine. I've had it for about 3 years. The Foretrex (like all Garmin handhelds) is IPX7 waterproof, meaning it should withstand submersion in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Well let's just say I did some "testing" on mine. While houseboating, I lost it when we were docked on the shore one morning.

Perfect for lightweight backpacking

valerieherzog, Ebay
6 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this for lightweight backpacking since it is small, waterproof, lightweight, and easily worn like a watch. I recently tested it on a 4 day desert trip in Southern Utah and it was really great. I mostly want this just for location confirmation, and waypoint tracking alongside a paper map, so the lack of really useful maps built in is not a problem for me. It is highly customizable and you can create screens that show all the data that you want.
