The Garmin Geko 201 GPS is one of the smallest, lightest weight handheld receivers available. A mere 2.3 ounces, this unit won’t slow you down in the field. The primary differences between this and other Gekos is as follows — the 201 offers a data port, allowing you to transfer waypoints, routes and tracks between it and a computer. The Geko 101 doesn’t offer this feature; the Geko 301 adds an electronic compass and barometric altimeter. None of the Gekos allow you to load maps.
