[RC] GPS Recommendations for Endurance Beginners - sharon1359


My friend and I are beginners, and are training for CTRs and LD rides this 
summer as a precursor to Endurance rides next year.

I'm in the market for a GPS to use during training.  I *think* I just want to 
know my speed, average speed, and distance traveled.  Anything beyond that is 
icing on the cake, I think, but you all would know best!

What features do I want?  What's the best value?  Where do I want to carry it, 
for the best signal?

I saw a Timex product last fall at the Equine Affaire.  I think it was a watch, 
and an armband transmitter/receiver.  It was a couple hundred bucks, which is 
more than I can afford, but I'm still curious about it.  Is it a good product?  
Does anyone know where I can find information about it online?

Does anyone have a used GPS that would fit the bill, that they'd like to sell?
