Well, I must have been good all year because Santa brought me a Waterproof Garmin Foretrex 201 GPS for Xmas. There is a good write up about this unit in the KiteWorld #24 Issue I received in Nov/Dec, 2006 on page 102. Santa paid $167.89 from www.BackCountry.com which included shipping & tax. I thought this was pretty reasonable.

I have not had a chance to try it on the water, but I will very soon. In the write up from KiteWorld it should be able to give me HEIGHT, not to mention Speed and Distance. It is waterproof and has a great Velcro strap for my arm or wrist. I hope I don't get electrocuted with my MP3 and GPS on while floating in the water.

I will give everyone an update and if I recommended it for Snow, the Buggy and/or Water kiteboarding.

Bring on the Lake St Clair Crossing; first Metro to Strawberry then from MI to Canada and I won't get lost!

Dude, it will give me my HEIGHT!

Hey turtle, some cool software that you may want to check out to go along with your new toy...

"usa photo maps" uses tera-server images to build large images of just about any erea

gps action replay - allows you to replay your tracks files overlaid on a map image (see above)

I use "easy gps" to get the tracks/waypoints etc off of the gps unit. I have the Garmin Etrex (also waterproof).
