Have a question about handheld? Get answers in the gear selection forum. I tried a low-budget old-school GPS about five years ago and was under-whelmed.

It was heavy, devoured batteries and had a Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch little screen that was about useless. I read other on-line reviews and pulled the trigger on this one. Several times in the last Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch seasons I have had to find my way back to camp in a whiteout.

In these cases I used map, compass and cairns and obviously I survived just fine. I wanted a GPS so I could navigate without stopping to take a back-azimuth and without pulling out the map and note paper.

I dislike the larger units and they cost a mint so the small size and wear-ability of the Foretrex appealed to me.

Foretrex is a slim wrist-mounted...

Did I look at the CD that came with it? Electronics need to be intuitive enough so that instructions are unnecessary.

In my first real backpacking situation I found it to be horribly inaccurate, it told me to go in the opposite direction that I knew I had to go. The reception under the trees was fine at least.

Then I figured out to calibrate it, I guess reading directions can help. After that it consistently brought me to within six feet of my way-point. Once calibrated, which is simple, the arrow in the Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch brought me to within spitting distance of my way-point every time.

I wore it on a recent hike and it was exposed to a heavy drizzle the entire trip and remained waterproof and took a few lumps from getting banged about. A lot of military guys seem to use these and even they give it generally good reports from battle conditions. In almost-whiteout conditions, Foretrex on left wrist. The wrist strap, which fits fantastically, has an extender so it can be worn over a coat or up the forearm which I like even more.

As an altimeter it suffers because it uses a barometer for measuring elevation. I can sit still and the altimeter says I climb feet in elevation over the span of a minute.

Barometer altimeters are all inaccurate so I never trust one anyway. GPS is improving definitely.

I'll always carry map and compass of course but this gadget, to me, is a keeper. Fair enough comment if a barometric altimeter doesn't work for your situations. I think the reason they're still common and why I still prefer to have both availablehowever, is that GPS-measured elevation can still be less accurate than GPS horizontal position Barometric altimeters suck Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch changing weather, but in stable weather they'll typically give an accurate read-out to less than a metre, at least compared with the elevation where they were calibrated.

One of my Foretrexs expired a few weeks ago and I decided to replace it with the just Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch Foretrex The appears as a USB drive in Windows.

I was hoping to use the along with the Garmin heart rate monitor during my mt bike rides instead of the my Edge and separate HRM. The had no trouble picking up the HR reading and displaying the values. Perhaps not surprisingly, the Garmin website has no substantial information of the as of yet and no discussion of what software will work with the When I emailed Garmin concerning data transfer software and the spanner function under the Setup menu, I received the following rather uninformative reply:.

I am happy to answer your questions. At this point, the Foretrex is only compatible with Garmin MapSource, but this information will unfortunately not include your cadence or heart rate information.

On the bright side, Garmin Connect, our online fitness website, will support the Garmin Outdoor product line in the second half of In the meantime, we recommend that you upload activities from those devices to MotionBased. Unfortunately, there is not much documentation available for Spanner other than the installation Garmin foretrex 401 gps watch found on the download page.
