Daren, November 23, 2009 This GPS offers most of the features from larger systems
with a compact size. It is very user friendly and has print
that is easy to read. It is great on your wrist or
strapped to any item. Batteries last longer than I
expected. The wrist strap could be longer but the extension it comes
with makes up the difference.
1 RCR, November 18, 2009 This GPS is very functional for military personal as it is
rite there when you need it. Whether you put it on your
wrist or mount it on your rifle, the grid you need to call
in a "9 Liner" is no more than a foot from your nose at all
times. The goto button is another great feature. Great
product at a great price. Sorry to see it discontinued.
Mike, November 11, 2009 I just purchased the third Garmin Foretrex 101 in about six
years (the first one was lost while sailing and the second
one got knocked too hard while sailing). It is the most
compact unit with all the features desired for sailing,
hiking, skiing, and other boating. It has good battery
life and is very accurate - the receiver has been updated
and now it has extra features like the countdown timer with
an even lower price - under $100 delivered. I have several
friends who have purchased one after seeing me use mine and
learning what it offers. I have never had a problem with
water proofness, batteries (nice feature of this unit is
being able to use regular batteries) or any kind of
electronic issue. It can be worn like a watch or around
the arm outside outer clothes with the extension strap.
Very convenient and versatile for active outdoor
enthusiasts. It even allows me now to connect to the
computer via a USB cable.
Don, November 9, 2009 This is my second Foretrex 101, brought it for a backup for
my first Foretrex 101 in case it goes bad. It works great
for hiking and geocaching. I did change the wrist band to a
metal flexable band.
