NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Garmin. It is replaced by the Foretrex 301 (click here), with high-sensitivity receiver and updated interface.

WAAS for even greater accuracy!The Foretrex 201 is a wearable Personal Navigator, perfect for outdoor and marine enthusiasts who desire hands-free GPS navigation in a lightweight, affordable package. At a mere 2.75 ounces, this waterproof wonder is lighter than most watches, and its wrist-top mount frees up hands for outdoor activities. Sporting an ergonomic wristband, the Foretrex 201 is similar in design to the Forerunner 201, yet is chocked full of GPS navigation features found in Garmin's popular Geko 201 unit.

With a user-friendly interface, the rugged Foretrex 201 simplifies navigation, making it ideal for the backcountry or water. Its six dedicated buttons (GoTo, Page, Enter/Mark, Up, Down and Power) make it easy to operate. It offers the most essential navigation data — enhanced GPS accuracy, extensive storage for waypoints, and reversible routes and tracks — on an easy-to-read display. Don't worry about packing extra batteries, because the Foretrex 201 runs on an internal lithium battery for 15 hours (typical use). Simply recharge and go.

The Foretrex 201 also comes equipped with special features sure to please mariners and hikers alike. It includes a unique application for sailing and paragliding racers that allows them to configure the start sequence of a race. The countdown is displayed in a large-number format that audibly alerts the user at each phase of the start sequence. With the help of Garmin's exclusive TracBack technology, hikers can mark a campsite, go trekking all day, and follow the electronic "breadcrumb trail" back to camp in time for dinner.

    Awesome Gift for my Outdoorsy boyfriend!, December 30, 2007
    I bought this as a Christmas present for my boyfriend, and he LOVED it! We took it on vacation with us up to the White Mountains in NH, and I was suprised that we got GREAT GPS signal halfway up Mt. Washington in a BLIZZARD! He's so excited to use it for hiking and skiing, and it would also be great for mountain biking! Tons of great features, including the compass and trip data... It takes some time to figure out ALL of the features that are packed into this little GPS system, but all-in-all, it's very user-friendly!

    Great Little GPS, April 13, 2007
