simple and light

  • Summary: this is the 2nd 101 that i have owned. the first one ate batteries and would shut off. these are the most basic of gpses. the sattelite lock in is not all that super fast but is adequate. user interface is a little cumbersome due to the lack of buttons. i purchased this due to the weight. this is the lightest gps you can buy. i only use it for way points and occasional navigation and for that is works well. there is no interface for computers so everything is manual.

cant take a hit, not even from two feet

  • Summary: It is water proof but when it dropped from my backpack onto the asphalt (not even two feet from the ground) while I was on my way to the hiking trail from the parking lot it broke, the batteries were new, it didn't even turn on, the screen wasn't even cracked the slightest bit and even after i put some fresh batteries in just to see if it did happen to be the batteries it didn't work even then so if you buy a GPS that you can expect to take a beating do not buy this one

  • Summary: Simple and easy to use. Controls are on the face of the unit and easily accessible. I use it for marking fishing spots and navigating back to dock. Can be attached easily to any surface & controls are out front for easy access.

Garmin Geko 101 Review

drew9001, Ebay
10 November 2010
  • Summary: If you can pick one up at a good price, the Garmin Geko 101 is a nice little gps. Signal acquisition is slow, compared to the Etrex, and it's not going to do as well in trees or under other cover. But for basic gps use, it's a fine device, and it's tough to get much better than 3 oz for those who are seeking to save on weight.

Garmin Geko 101

cfarchd, Ebay
11 June 2008
  • Summary: Small size and very light weight make it easy to carry and use. Instructions are clear enough to be able to use with little or no previous experience with gps units. Navigation through pages is relatively easy. Some of the more "powerful" applications are not always explained thoroughly. AAA battery power cause the unit to require fresh batteries frequently. Rechargeable batteries help ease that minor negative.

Good Buy

able4, Ebay

  • Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive GPS receiver to use in my farming operation. I've used the Garmin twice and it's simple for me to use. It was exactly what I was looking for. I needed something to get me straight swaths when mowing hay. All I need to do is watch the "face" of it and keep it headed straight and by magic Ihave straight swaths, easier to bale the hay.
