Call me a dinosaur, but my ancient Garmin GPS 48 is all I've ever needed in the 10K. My eyes, my memory, my compass and charts are much more useful running the back country at high speed. Miss some of the turns back there because your screen didn't update fast enough and you can get yourself in trouble, I've seen people do just that while staring at their big displays instead of looking at the water.

If I ever need to replace my 48, I'd go for the Garmin 72 - simple, durable, proven.
