Garmin International Inc. Introduced the Geko 101 and Geko 201

Garmin International Inc. unveiled a new line of lightweight, easy-to-use GPS products that are both colorful and affordable. The Geko 101 (yellow) is a low-cost device for navigational novices. It has 250-waypoint storage capacity with graphic identification and is targeted at the casual user. The Geko 201 (green) takes the basic functions of the Geko 101 and adds the utility of the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) to deliver accuracy of less than 10 feet. The Geko 201 also boasts a user-configurable trip computer and 10,000 log points for automatic recording of electronic “breadcrumb trails.” The Geko 201 includes several Garmin-proprietary games. The Geko 101 and Geko 201 feature accuracy of 45 feet or less (Geko 101); 10 feet or less with WAAS (Geko 201); 3.92" (H) x 1.85" (W) x 0.96" (D) size; a weight of 3 oz. with batteries; a 1.8" (diagonal) screen size; screen resolution of 100 (H) x 64 (W) pixel count; battery life of 12 hours (typical use) on two AAA batteries; automatic track storage: 3,000 trackpoints (Geko 101); 10,000 trackpoints and 20 saved tracks (Geko 201); and waterproof construction.
