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?
