GPS Unit for Cycle-Touring
« on: January 10, 2006, 11:33:44 pm »
Hi Folks,

I'm a newbie to the gps world and am really hoping to find the ideal unit for a 3 month bike tour coming up.  I looked into the Garmin 101 - small but short on features.  So I'm completely open to suggestions, given the following criteria.

1> COMPACT and light for cycling
2> Runs on REPLACEABLE BATTERIES (no room for charger).
3> Captures and records a history of ALTITUDE.  Ideally, it could calculate the total amount of climbing/descending that I do on a track.

As for other features, I expect the basic features to be available but do NOT necessarily need mapping.

Is there anything out there which fulfills these 3 requirements??

Thanks in advance for any advice!
Mike

For others looking in, this is a continuation of "Not finding the ideal GPS for cycling" in the General Discussion forum.
