Garmin Foretrex 201

The Foretrex 201 is a wrist GPS navigator, perfect for outdoor and marine enthusiasts who desire hands-free GPS navigation in a lightweight package.

At 2.75 ounces, the waterproof Foretrex 201 is lighter than most watches, and its wrist-top mount frees up hands for outdoor activities. The Foretrex 201 includes the GPS navigation features of the Geko 201 unit. 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.

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 TracBack? technology, hikers can mark a campsite, go trekking all day, and follow the electronic "breadcrumb trail" back to camp in time for dinner.

Q: "What is the lifetime of the Li battery in the Forerunner 201/Foretrex 201?"
A: (From Garmin): "The battery is good for between 1000 and 2000 charge cycles, depending on how deeply discharged the battery becomes during each charge cycle. You get 13 hours of battery life for every charge cycle. If you were to use the unit 3 hours a day, that's still 4 days between charges or about 91 charge cycles per year. If your unit only was good for 1000 charge cycles, then that's still almost 11 years!"

"If the unit is going to be stored for extended periods, the batteries probably should be stored at 1/3 to 2/3 of a full charge. The batteries don't like to be stored completely full or completely discharged."
