NEWS - GARMIN FORETREX 301 and 401
Wearable GPS - High Sensitivity GPS - AGPS - 2xAAA


Foretrex 301 product page : >> LINK << - Foretrex 401 product page : >> LINK <<

We had lost sight of the Garmin Foretrex family of GPS devices after the Foretrex 101/201 failed to get updated to a high sensitivity chipset in 2006 at the same time as the Forerunner series. Garmin have just announced that they are back with the Foretrex 301 and 401 that adds a compass and ANT connectivity.

As expected they now boast a high sensitivity GPS chipset with HotFix AGPS although it is unknown at this time which one it is : SiRFstarIII, MTK, ST Micro already used on Garmin systems or a new player. The format is similar to the previous models and they are quite wide, but that's a good thing to properly use their features (map and route/track/waypoint). They both use 2 AAA batteries so you can keep going forever with a good supply of spares! They will be available in Q3 for $200 and $250.

Question: This has a 10,000 (ten thousand) point memory according to the specs. But, What is the logging frequency options (1 point a second would be 2 hours, 1 point per 5 seconds would be 23 hours)? Are there any other tricks people use to extend the life of the logging?

Good question. That's certainly not much and I'm pretty sure my FR205 watch can do a lot better than that.
