Foretrex® 201

Part Number: 010-00361-02

Overview

The Foretrex 201 and its counterpart, Foretrex 101, deliver hands-free GPS navigation in a lightweight, waterproof package. Lighter than many watches, this wrist-mounted navigator runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and is ideal for kayaking, hang gliding, skiing or any other activity that requires both hands free.

Track Back

No matter where your adventure takes you, you'll never worry about getting lost when you're armed with the Foretrex 201. Foretrex keeps track of your path and displays it as a tiny dotted trail on the screen. Just turn on Foretrex's TracBack® feature, and you can retrace your path back to the beginning. You can save locations in memory as waypoints (up to 500 of them), so you can always find your way back to any important place, like your campsite or vehicle. Foretrex also lets you put several waypoints together to create and store routes to all of your favorite places. To keep track of your trip, Foretrex 201 incorporates a trip computer, sunrise/sunset and hunting and fishing information and can connect to your PC with the serial cable.

Set Sail

For sailing races and other competitions, you can set Foretrex's timers to count down the start sequence of a race and sound audible alarms when a certain time has passed. If you need to resynchronize your timer at any time, you can do so with just one button press. The large-number display makes it easy to see data at a glance. And, like all Garmin handhelds, it's tough, IPX7 waterproof and easy to use with a few operating buttons.
