Im looking to get a GPS unit that will show and SAVE my TOP SPEED.

I dont want to have to look at the unit while im moving very fast while skiing, therefore I want to be able to look later to see what my top speed was. I want the cheapest handheld GPS that I can get that will do that for me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have a look at the Garmin Geko 201. http://www.garmin.com/products/geko201/

This will not only record your top speed, it will keep a "track log" of exactly where you ski, time, distance and what speed you were doing at each pont.

You can upload this track log to your PC (the cheaper Geko 101 doesn't have a serial port) and then overlay the track onto a scanned map of the ski area if you like. Of course it will also tell you your altitude, distance, direction to home, speed, rate of descent and all the other GPS like things.

The GPS does tend to average your speed over a few seconds though, so it may read a little slow while you are zigzaging. Going straight ahead should be fine though. 8)

Thanks, I appreciate it. The Geko 201 sounds a little better than the Cobra I was looking at, and its only 20 dollars more.
