Hello all! I am interested in buying a 305 but have a couple questions. I am a runner and have been using the Polar S625x to get my heart rate, speed and distance. I am starting to have some issues after about 18 months, so I'm looking at possible replacements. I am an american currently living in Germany, so my first question is how good is the signal quality of the 305 in Europe? Are there different 305 models for the US and Europe or does the same model work worldwide? One thing I really like about my Polar is how well it charts change in altitude. Is the 305 good at tracking change in altitude as well? Thanks for all your help!

Is it worth saving a few bucks and buying a used Forerunner 205 or just get a new one?

Globalsat GH-601 - now that looks like a cool device. I am going to dig in and see about getting one of those. Thanks for creating this forum. It is indeed one of the best I've found on this topic.

Have a great day!
John

Hi!
Just bought a Garmin 305 Forerunner from Costco Canada. It was relatively inexpensive==$176 Cdn IIRC. Goal? Move more, watching my heartrate. I'm too heavy.
Put the unit on--surprise! The pulserate is in the upper right corner. It's so small that old eyes can't read it (there's a little hope if I really try in bright, bright light. I'm 62...)
BUT--I just found there is a fix.

Turn unit on. Push Mode button twice to go display (History, Training, Navigation, Settings) Scroll down and select settings. Select "General". Select "Data Fields"

I selected "4" displays on the screen, selected a screen I would like to change, then scrolled through until I found Heart Rate.

When I was done, my 305 displays:

* Time * Heart Rate
* Distance * Time of Day

Works for me!

Took out the ol' FR205 to record tracks on the runs, connect via USB with Sporttracks and that's it. The FR405 is more compact but less convenient with the required USB ANT key and special cable to charge it.

Still enjoying my FR205, probably the "oldest" (2006) GPS system I'm still using! Amazon is having a Cybermonday sale on the FR205 at $100 and the FR305 at $130 with the heartrate monitor :
