Jury still out

JANELLE, Amazon
3 April 2015
  • Summary: Okay I'm going to admit difficulties getting to know this new little gadget. I read the manual and tried everything possible but cannot sync to Garmin Connect to bring up maps on my computer. The map on the tiny screen is just too small to be of much use.

Best product I've bought on Amazon

Josh, Amazon

  • Summary: Absolutely love this Garmin. I have used Garmin products in the past and have become loyal to the brand because of the quality provided. I also recently purchased the Vivosmart activity tracker and love that as well. The Foretrex 401 is relatively easy to figure out how to use.

FANTASTIC GPS

J. St Louis, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: This is one of the best GPS devices I have ever owned. (I have owned 6 or 7 during the past 20 years) I also have a Magellan Explorist 601 that has all the bells and whistles but goes through batteries like my wife goes through a box of chocolate.

Disappointing battery life

itguy, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this GPS for most of the year. It's ok for hiking. It says it can pair with a bicycle speed/cadence sensor, and does, but it doesn't make a good bike computer. The main issue is battery life. It's terrible on the bike. Honestly, battery life is not that great on the trail either.

It is great for backwoods hiking used it for 2 weeks straight ...

  • Summary: Wish I had this garmin sooner. It is great for backwoods hiking used it for 2 weeks straight and never failed. Also, I use it for running when I just want to see all the details of my chosen path. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants quick accurate gps. Probably great for geocaching too.

Fantastic GPS - Failed - Great Garmin Customer Service

TQM Doctor "ValleyOutdoors", Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: I've been hiking in the Sierra Nevada about 1-2 times per week with this GPS watch and it has held up great for the last three months. Before using this device, I used the Garmin 60cs for lots of years and it's always worked well so long as there were no trees to block satellite signals.

  • Summary: This is a great product. Hands down. Please feel free to send me a message if you want to talk about it. Moving forward...I chose 5 stars because it does everything I need it to do. It is simple, small, and highly effective.

Excellent gps

romad99, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: I've had these issued by work a few times and they are great. I finally bought my own so I can leave it mounted on my kit. Excellent for quick reporting of your location and for uploading waypoints prior to going out on missions/hiking.
