Great for the price

PORTABLE MOUNT (MUST BE USED

 

would buy another one in the future but would like to see updates more frequent

Showing highligts in different towns

found that some streets were eliminated and also when it brought us home it put us on the wrong side of the street

Consumer review by:

must have

 

We really liked using the vehicle mount. It won't leave hard to remove marks on the windshield. It is easier to remove. It is easier to see and doesn't block your view or you using the sun visor.

Much easier to see on dashboard

no instructions

Product Specifications

Gekos are the smallest and lightest waterproof GPS units on the market - inexpensive, with sleek designs and simple operating systems. With its distinctive canopy-green case, the powerful Geko 201 allows more waypoint and route storage, as well as available PC and external power connectivity, and built-in WAAS capability. In addition, the Geko 201 boasts a user-configurable trip computer, 10,000 trackpoints, a new upcoming-turn feature, as well as PanTrack and TracBack. The Geko 201 also includes four fun, interactive games that transform the great outdoors into a virtual board game. Enjoy a good workout while chasing a virtual lizard in Geko Smak, match symbols in a grid version of Memory Race, navigate to reference points without crossing one's trail in Nibbons, and collect symbols along a path in Virtua Maze.
