Garmin Foretrex 301

The Garmin Foretrex 301 is a GPS navigator that integrates high-sensitivity; WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and USB interface into a waterproof device for light hikers, skiers, campers and military personnel. The device is worn on the wrist, and features a GPS receiver with HotFix™ that acquires and maintains satellite reception in heavy tree cover or deep canyons. It monitors and stores routes, tracks and waypoints. The device also features TracBack® which allows the Foretrex to retrace the path back to the starting point. This feature allows users to find their way back to a campsite or vehicle, using the breadcrumb trail, data fields and compass screen on the LCD display. The Foretrex 301 features dual-position readout so that users can view current location in multiple formats, including latitude/longitude and an alternate position format of choice. The Foretrex 301 also incorporates a trip computer, sunrise/sunset and hunting and fishing information and can be connected to a PC or Mac via USB connection. The Garmin Foretrex 301 does not support basemap and does not come with preloaded maps, nor does it allow users to add more maps. The device also does not have built-in memory not accepts data cards. It does support waypoints/favorites/locations input, routes and a track log.

Features

The Foretrex 301 is a wrist-watch GPS device that weighs about 3 ounces (87.3g) and is powered by two AAA batteries (not included). This provides the user up to 18 hours of battery life, allowing them to chronicle their activities by storing up to 500 waypoints, 20 routes or a tracklog of up to 10,000 points and 10 saved tracks. The Foretrex 301 measures 2.9 x 1.7 x 0.9 inch (7.5 x 4.3 x 2.3 cm) and sports a 1.4 inch x 0.9 inch (3.6 x 2.3 cm) black and white LCD display with 100 x 64 pixels resolution. This device though does not support automatic routing (turn by turn routing on roads), electronic compass, is not a touchscreen unit, does not have a barometric altimeter, is not geocaching-friendly and does not support outdoor GPS games. The Foretrex 301 also does not display tide tables, area calculation, custom POIs (ability to add additional points of interest), unit-to-unit transfer (shares data wirelessly with similar units) and does not have a picture viewer. The device can be connected to a PC or Mac and allows users to synchronise information and data on it via USB connection.
