The Garmin Geko 201 is among the smallest and lightest WAAS-enabled GPS navigators inexpensive, with simple, intuitive operation.Track BackWhen you're winding your way through new territory, you don't have to worry about how to get back when you're armed with the Geko 201. Geko keeps track of your path and displays it as a tiny dotted trail on the screen. Just turn on Geko'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, such as your campsite or vehicle. Geko also lets you put several waypoints together to create and store routes to all of your favorite places. Geko's trip computer can tell you how far and how fast you've traveled. And at the end of the day, you can connect your Geko to your PC and transfer your waypoints and tracks.Garmin Geko 201 Features:Outdoor GPS gamesHunt/fish calendarSun and moon information Specifications:Unit dimensions, WxHxD: 1.9'' x 3.9'' x 0.96'' (4.8 x 9.9 x 2.4 cm)Display size, WxH: 0.92'' x 1.44'' (2.3 x 3.7 cm)Display resolution, WxH: 64 x 100 pixelsDisplay type: Black and white LCDWeight: 2.3 oz (65.2 g) without batteries; 3.1 oz (96 g ) with batteriesBattery: 2 AAA batteries (not included)Battery life: 12 hoursWaterproof: yes (IPX7)Interface: serialRoHS version availableMaps & MemoryWaypoints/favorites/locations: 500Routes: 20Track log: 10,000 points; 10 saved tracks
