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 fått så bra kritik här. Men GPS:en fungerar väldigt dåligt (fungerar egentligen inte alls bland flervåningshus) om man befinner sig bland flervåningshus. Jag bor i ett 4-våningshus och behöver förflytta mig 2-3 km eller vänta 10-15 min på att den ska få kontakt med satelliterna. Det spelar ingen roll att jag förflyttar mig till andra sidan vägen där det är helt öppet, den får ändå ingen kontakt.
