[RC] Garmin product comparisons: Geko 201, Forerunner 201, and NEWForetrek 201! - sharon1359

I won't be in the position to buy one anytime soon, nor do I necessarily NEED to
have one, but I do like to keep a running "wish list" for my honey to peruse at
his leisure.  ;)  After all, Karen C. has provided us with a GREAT example of
why it can be important to have base camp marked on (and be carrying) your
GPS!!

Which of these three units would y'all find most useful?  I like the wristband
style of the Forerunner and Foretrek... I like the breadcrumb-trail
capabilities of the Geko and Foretrek... I like the pacing features of the
Forerunner.  Which leaves me not knowing which unit would be best for my
wishlist!  Any input?

Those of you who have the Forerunner: how useful is the mapping feature?  Garmin
says it's a lot less robust than the Geko and Foretrek have, but is it useful
ENOUGH?

Thanks!!
