Good product, terrible support

  • Summary: I really wanted to love my Garmin 305. It had all the features that I was looking for and the versatility use it to track a number of activities. But a recurring conflict between the Garmin USB drivers and Windows 7 (64 bit) - which Garmin refuses to acknowledge as a widespread problem - means that I cannot endorse or recommend this product. Almost every time that I plug my Garmin 305 into my PC, the computer instantly crashes (BSOD) and goes into recovery mode.

Good when it works

  • Summary: I've used the Forerunner for a couple of weeks now and am just about getting the hang of it. Once you've got used to it it is a superb training aid. However, to really get the most out of it you need to hook it up to a PC. The supplied software is OK but there is better (free) software available (have a look at SportTracks). On the positive side the GPS is very good at maintaining a signal in woods, this is offset by the start up time which can only be described as slow.

pregi e difetti del Forerunner 305

  • Summary: Ormai il FR 305 è in commercio da un po' di anni, nel frattempo sono usciti prodotti forse tecnologicamente più aggiornati e accattivanti, ma nell'immaginario collettivo è uno dei must per il podista "che fa sul serio". Lo conoscevo da tempo, avevo letto diverse recensioni ma l'ho acquistato solo qualche settimana fa, grazie anche al fatto che è diventato economicamente più abbordabile: 125 euro online (Italia) a fronte del prezzo iniziale nel 2007 che oscillava sui 230...
  • Pros: molte funzioni (ma non tutte valide e precise)
  • Cons: chi l'ha progettato non ha mai corso in vita sua !

Ganska dålig

  • Summary: Är tyvärr inte alls nöjd med denna. Hade stora förhoppningar eftersom den fÃ¥tt sÃ¥ bra kritik här. Men GPS:en fungerar väldigt dÃ¥ligt (fungerar egentligen inte alls bland flervÃ¥ningshus) om man befinner sig bland flervÃ¥ningshus. Jag bor i ett 4-vÃ¥ningshus och behöver förflytta mig 2-3 km eller vänta 10-15 min pÃ¥ att den ska fÃ¥ kontakt med satelliterna.
