Great for the price

 

This is a great handheld gps unit for the price. Dont expect to get the features of a $300 unit but for camping, fishing, biking, and basic navigation it is perfect.

dashboard

 

i have used a gps dashboard mount before. it was the one with a bean-bag type foundation and it was much better than this product. the garmin portable friction mount does not stay in place. so i am returning it.

very helpful

 

I like this product because you make the mount fit any dashboard's shape. The mount keeps the GSP in the same position.

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.
