    I’ve had Garmin in my vehicles and boats, now wrist. Works great, I keep it with my bug out bag thank you. Highly recommended

  2. larrton_4

    Product exactly as described by manufacturer, would be nice to be able to load maps.

  3. Stephenax

    With the default Garmin directories deleted (you should do this when you get your 401), the device shows 4.2 MB total, with 645 KB used by the system, leaving 3.5 MB available for routes, waypoints, and tracks. Garmin could just as easily put a 64 MB or 128 MB memory chip. This tiny memory might be due to an old processing chip with a puny limitation of memory addressing.

    This straps on the outside, so there is no fumbling around trying to find it, or accidentally losing it. It’s like a speedometer, just glance down and there’s the information. Has a battery indicator, which is handy. The data port cover fell off, so the data port will eventually plug up to the point that it won’t work, so I need to do something about that. The screen shifts around, trying to second-guess which direction you’re going, which is helpful except when you’re on a fidgety horse who is backing up and spinning and stuff, with the GPS constantly “thinking” and making one adjustment, then another, so the direction is not reliable in that situation. No internal map, which is fine, those maps are not detailed enough anyway from what I have seen. So I need this GPS. It is very good, a life-saver, makes a big difference especially when trying to find something and also in the cold, dark, and foggy. Can set waypoints easily. I carry extra batteries so can run the unit until the batteries in place are completely used up.

    I got this to go through a training course that involved patrolling through the woods and trying to find bad guys. Before we were allowed to start using GPS, it was difficult to accurately navigate wooded, hilly terrain using a compass and pace counts. We would often approach our objective from the wrong direction or have to search for it. Once we were allowed to start using a GPS, I brought this. No guess work at all. I had it hanging from my flack or on my wrist in the hot, cold, wet, dry, everything. This is great!Ease of use: It’s a small computer on your wrist, it’ll take a evening of tinkering to get used to all of its features. Once you take the time to understand it, it is so easy to use in the field. Push a button and find your current azimuth, push a button and see how far you are from your next point, push a button and get an instant 10 DIGIT GRID!Battery life: It’ll last you a full day of continuous use. I left this thing on and hanging from my flack when we were driving vehicles through trails in the mountains all day for 10 days. I was the navigator and this is the only reason we made it back every night! I’m stubborn and don’t always read instructions and toward the end of those 10 days I realized there is a place to plug in a charger rather than replace batteries all the time. It’s safe to say its covered well and inconspicuous.Durability: When I hang this from the front of my flack and run, it bounces against the flack constantly. It doesn’t break, it doesn’t malfunction, it just does its job. Whether it’s in the 30’s and raining/snowing, or really hot outside and dry, this thing does its job. I recommend buying a screen protector to prevent scuffs. That’s what I did and mine is still looking great. I have no fear of simply throwing this thing in my pack and heading out. I’m not concerned it’s going to break in my pack or anything weird like that.Versatility: I’ve used this on the east coast and it was great. I got to Japan, changed the grid zones, and it was still great. I guess that what “Global” means. . . Need to find a place out in the woods? Punch in a grid and it’ll take you there. It’ll give you an arrow to follow, you follow it, you find the place you’re looking for. Need to let someone know where you are? One of the screens give you a constant 10 digit grid. Need to follow a route? Take the time to insert points using grids, then select which points you want to visit and in which order. Then just follow the arrow. You can even label the points with words and icons. What elevation are you at? Yeah, it’s on the screen all the time if you want it to be.I’m done typing. . . just buy this thing already!

    My old rhino150 was awesome showing maps etc, but lacked being able to lock onto satellites in a timely manner. It would also lose tracking even when under a tree canopy! The 401 foretrex easily locks onto satellites, even in my basement. It is extremely simple and fast, without all the hoopla of downloading maps and constantly updating maps while walking. The foretrex operates in pouring down rain & snow and instantly gives me coordinates and distance to my waypoints without waiting on satellites or downloading area. I use it mainly for getting out of deep cover after tracking downed game. In the future i intend to download maps to it for hiking and exploration. My biggest fear is getting lost while dragging game out of the deep bush. This little jewel gives me piece of mind and no waiting on tracking or back tracking. Simply love using the compass with dot showing direction i should be heading. Rugged, water resistant, piece of mind while in unfamiliar territory, & ease of use. Loving on this little GPS.
