The GTrek differs from our other devices in that it passively records your route for download onto PC later. It is small and unobtrusive enough to easily fit into a jersey pocket and is simple to operate.

Post-ride analysis is simple enough once the data has been downloaded. The profile elevation of the ride along with altitude gains and losses is recorded as is speed. The route can also be exported into Google Earth and then shared with ride buddies.
