UPDATE: This model has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Garmin Foretrex 401
The Garmin Foretrex 201 GPS is similar to the Forerunner 201 in form, but whereas the Forerunner is designed to track athletic performance, the Foretrex’s forte is navigation. For example, the Foretrex holds 500 waypoints versus the Forerunner’s 100. But that is only the start of the difference in navigation features.
