Great GPS

Rick, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a great GPS for limited use... The Battery last for days if not used continuously. If I had to order one again I would go with the AA battery operated. As for the function of the unit it works great acquires satellite fast and works well it is a basic model without all the bells and whistles. You can attach it to your wrist and the weight isn't bad.

Good GPS for outdoors.

  • Summary: This works good although not inside the car. The metal blocks the signal. You can't get lost in the woods with this since you can use it to retrace your steps. I don't like the way the charger snaps on, it is a tight fit and difficult to get on and off.

Great gps unit

D. Medina, Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for everything and all things i do in nature. Hiking, hunting, even at work (military) only disnfall, i bought a rechargeable one which is great when electrucity is abundant. But in some countries it isnt. I shouldve bought a battery operated one. Still performs amazingly. Comparable to the 401 model minus the bluetooth. Very accurate very good gps.

great little unit for specific uses

  • 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..

Perfect for the dunes out at Glamis!

  • Summary: I bought this GPS to replace my old Magellan eXplorist. I ride quads and SxS's, however it doesn't matter what you ride/drive, this wrist mounted GPS is perfect. When you are leaving camp for a particular spot (Olds, Hill 5, the drags...) you can simply select "GoTo", pick your destination and then ride. All you need to do is check out the nav pointer every once in a while to make sure you are heading in the right direction.

Good Gadget

neko506, Ebay
10 September 2010
  • 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.

Garmin Foretrex 201

  • 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.
