    Personal review of GEKO system
    "The Question is not: how far you will take this? The Question is do you possess the constitution to go as far as is needed?"

      I have a 201 , it's a very basic GPS but small and light . No real manual waypoint entry but if you are only needing occasional grids or loading tracks via PC it's perfect. Battery life about 4 hours at full.

          yeah i have one

          it is basic but works well. like trellheim said, get it together with some mapping software (Google Earth is free) and a data cable, it's good for seeing where you went. its bright green for better visibility too.

            will this system give an irish grid reference or just a lat/ long ?
            the walking traveling accs they are selling includes a good wallet pouch type thing which can be modified into a usefull tac aide pouch well worth it.
            compass is cheap but works and is a usefull backup or a introductory model.

              greyfox it will give both - you can select grids for lots of different countries including Ireland.
              its pretty robust so it doesnt really need a pouch. it is the same size and weight as a typical mobile phone.

                I suggest mapquest software...

                Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.
