    e-trex is a grea litte unit, if you're just looking for a speed reading. It will also do coordinates, ect. I don't think it's waterproof, though

    I have that one or one similar to it. I was under the impression it was waterproof and i've taken it out but never dunked it. That one with the color screen is better then mine but mine will chart speed and you can plot out your course and record spots for the future. It's a good little basic unit.

    Here's what my employer has to say about it..

    would these GPS work on the streets or just to save coordinates on the water ?

    I got a Garmin Foretrex 101. Its wears like a big wrist watch and has everything including a Max Speed that you reset after each speed run.
    It was the cheapest I could find and works great because you wear it then put it in your storage after. Google It?

    Yes, It will work on the street, but won't give you turn by turn directions. For example, if you put in a location to goto, it will just point straight to it and tell you it's 13.21 miles NW.

    I have an older Etrex Legend that I use on my ski from time to time. It works good with the optional handlebar mount.
