This cable also works with the Garmin Foretrex 101.

I noticed from the Garmin website that their part number for the Foretrex 101 PC cable is the same as this Amazon item model number: 010-10484-00.

[...]

I took a chance and ordered one for my Foretrex 101 and despite the "201 only" title for this item; it works!

Unfortunately, Garmin do not produce a USB cable, but this does the job and enables you to download firmware updates and use map software and free GPS software such as EasyGPS.

Do not be fooled by the nice cheap price for this that I was. Amazon should learn to advertise correctly. I recently bought the Garmin Geko 201 GPS unit - I wanted to buy a serial cable for the unit. This cable was advertised for the 201 only - but what 201 is it for - cos it's not for the Garmin Geko 201 that's for sure. On the supplied bag it says Forerunner 201/Fortrex 201.
Garmin are a disgrace anyway having incompatible cables like this anyway, but Amazon should also label it's products more clearly. I'm now going to have to package it up and send it back, which is always a major pain

This cable is not for the Garmin Geko 201. There are other Garmin products called 201 - Foretrex, Forerunner etc

For Geko cable you will need the Garmin PC Interface cable wih Item model number: 010-10206-00. If you do not have a serial connector on your PC/laptop you will need a serial to USB converter.

Amazon descriptions are very vague - be careful.

This is to add to the two reviews above. This cable although advertised for a garmin 201 only (which sugests there is only one 201) is not actualy for the garmin gecko 201???

Anyway i now have to return this cable due to terrible item description by Amazon.co.uk.

It may not work on other devices, but I have a cable apparently identical to the one in the picture which works fine on the Foretrex 101. As far as I know the 101 and the 201 have exactly the same jack socket.

This bit of kit works but really annoyingly you have to also buy a serial to USB adapter (which probably costs more) if you don't have a serial port on your computer. The actual cable is solid and I've never had a problem with over 3 years of heavy use. You can use it both ways as it were. It gives and takes GPS info. For final clarification it works with 101 and 201 in both Foretrex and Forerunner flavours. Still a dumb description by Amazon.
