Summary: ok...I really like this little unit but you must understand its limitations to appreciate its strengths. If mapping is not needed and you can overlook the rechargeable feature then I would say you would be hard pressed to find a better unit. If the use of AAA batteries is important to you then go with a 101/301/401. It is well made and packed full of useful features. The customizable screens are very convenient but labeling a waypoint in not lol..
Summary: I live in Costa Rica ( central america), just got the 201 and so far best signal has been up to 9 m. GPS is quite small, smaller than what I had in mind, not an issue but worth mentioning of you like to travel light. Wristband is small also, this might be an issue, would recommend the expansions for this.
Summary: I love this thing. This is my third one. I broke the first and lost the second. I'm a pilot. I love having all this information so easily accessible on my wrist. I like the rechargeable battery. Many people I know prefer the 101/301/401 because they use AAA batteries, but I prefer lithium ions.
Summary: This GPS is good for sailors providing you don't wear it on your wrist, both myself and my sailing partner have lost the same model over the side. The problem is the pins that hold it to the strap they come away very easily. Despite this I have still bought a new one in order to monitor my speed and courses, however I do keep it zipped up in my pocket and use it for post race analysis. I've used it for other, less physically demanding sports where it works well.
Summary: Excellent produit, du garmin, haute qualité, très précise et très fiable. grands chiffres, multiples reglages, grande autonomie. livré en 5 jours en France. Ne pas oublier d'acheter un adaptateur de prise US/europe, valeur 4 euros. deux fois moins cher qu'en France (valeur de ce GPS 159 euros).
Summary: I bought this device because occasionally I ride my dirtbike into unfamiliar areas. I have sometimes been hesitant to take the "trail less traveled" because you never know where it ends up. With this device, I now have the confidence to go wherever I feel like going. I know it will get me back. It has a mileage counter, so I know when to turn back (fuel needs) and altitude meter, so I also know how to jet my bikes.
