Cheapest GPS for speed runs? - 06.17.2014, 12:24 PM

Just like the title says, does anyone know of a cheap GPS with top speed capture for doing speed runs? Thanks for any help.

Mike! Cool to see you post. I do not have a smart phone. My dad pays my cell bill and he'll be damned if he's going to pay for that new fangled internet for me.

That one is $52 at hobby king but at the international warehouse, so with shipping $65 and the wait....

I found the Oregon Scientific GP108 for $47 shipped on ebay.

I am using a Garmin forerunner 201 here, works perfect, and is pretty cheap to get.

I got the Oregon Scientific GP108 as mentioned above.

I got it for $40 from Amazon by getting $10 off for getting a 1 month free trial of Amazon Prime (sweet) and free 2 day shipping (sweeter) with the Prime membership.

His electric wheel chair probably...

Don't forget to cancel the prime membership before the end of the month though, otherwise you'll get stung for ~$90 or whatever it is...
