I’ve been doing okay with the yardage markers and sprinkler heads on the golf course but maybe someday when I retire — rich beyond my wildest dreams thanks to blogging – I’ll be able to work on my game to get to the point where I need to know the exact distance to the pin. That’s where the GR-130 from Holux will come in.

Or there’s the GR-245 Bike GPS, a product I’ll never use because it’s for bicycle enthusiasts. I don’t own a bicycle, nor am I enthusiastic about bicycling. The lack of enthusiasm likely begets the non-ownership of said bicycle.

Some more stats and details for you.
