Comments about Foretrex 301 Wrist Mounted Navigator:
I bought this to use on a small one-design sailboat, since it's sold as a waterproof unit. It gets lots of splash in saltwater. I noticed the corrosion in the battery area after months of usage. Unit still works, but I expect it won't last a long while.
On the plus side, if you want to keep track of just a few variables (like speed and heading) and want a wrist-mounted unit, this does fine.
The menu is multilayered and navigation is a bit slow since the interface is limited to a couple buttons by the small size and wristmounted design.
