There was a discussion regarding a GPS system worn on the wrist. Someone link a website that sold them. I've searched but my google-fu is weak, can someone repost the website for me?

Be aware that the 201 has some features that the 101 doesn't, but the 101 runs off AAA batteries. We sell literally hundreds, fuck maybe up to thousands, of the 101's. Also, all of these fuckers are notorious for the pins breaking. You might want to invest in this:

Later,

Is the 201 worth the extra money? My guess is most of my guys will only use the basic functions, so I'dont want to buy Gucci when Nike will do.

The 101 should do the job, also like Josh said you might want to look into a case for it. I can't recall the case we had but the one at Grey Group looks similiar. The only clear pic I had:

101 is the way to go because it takes batteries. What do you need it to do? Track route and give you grids? The 101 does that plus sunrise sunset. I don't know what the 201 adds to the fight.

That's it in a nutshell. One or two gear gods in the unit, but most of us are too old to actually understand new technologies.

I have (and love) 101. With LBT pouch it's great (original strap is kind of shitty... i lost it in two days) and if i can compare with other garmin models, it's really fast and have long battery life. Friend who have a 201 said it can work for about 3 days if used reasonable. But IMHO 101 is way to go when you don't know when you might meed electric socket next time.
