Best GPS for tracking distance and time

Apologies if this is already a thread!

I am looking to purchase a GPS for on the trail. Ideally I would want one that tracks distance, speed (average and fastest), time and location would be a bonus.

What are your favorites??

The hardest part of my request is I'm working with a budget here and would like to spend under $200 Canadian.

Thanks :)

I downloaded the EquiTracks app on my iPhone for $4 and it does all those things.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Thanks! That's way more budget friendly haha!
Do you know if it accesses your data? I don't have a very large data cap on my phone so I'm not sure if that would work well for me.

I've tried a bunch of them but I love Track My Hack (free) and iRide (the paid version but with live GPS).

They're by the clothing company WoofWear, I love both of them but you can't beat FREE!

My Track My Hack friends and I love keeping tran of each other and I like the iRIde for when I'm riding alone I can have my darling fiancé keep track of me.

How many times did I use the word "track" lol
