I'm looking get a GPS system and am thinking about the Navaman x300 (skiing/running) and the Garmin 201.

Which is better?

I like the idea of the virtual partner (garmin) but also it would be quite cool for my skiing as well (Navman). Although I run every week and only ski once or twice a year.

Any advice much appreciated!!

No experience of the Navman range, but my Garmin 201 is everything I need. It is uncannily accurate, even though I run through some wooded areas it still sees enough satellites to get positional data on most occasions. Some excellent freeware available as well to allow you to get most out of the data - I use sportracks.

what features would the navman give you for skiing that the garmin doesnt have?

does the garmin give altitude diferences? This is what impressed me with the Navman.

well it has altitude from GPS which isn't fantastic, not too bad in the mountains tho.

if that's all the navman has then no great difference, if it has barometric altimeter then that may be a plus if you'll actually need it for skiing.
