Lol yes GPS, i blame my bad memory on the resin fumes, and nitro mix, I had a look at them around the web, will do the job well, I just need to redesign things, for a mounting kit,vac formed lexan looks like a good idea, to make a cover for the garmin.
Thanx for the help

Actually the Garmin Forerunner 201 is smaller and very light. Is the one on the left, you can take the band out. and it has tons of features. around $40 on ebay used

Why can't you use PayPal? You don't need an account with PayPal to make a purchase, you just need a credit/debit card. You only need a registered account with PayPal to receive money.
