the 301 has gone from the £200 mark down to ???£160 (at best?) over the past year.

so i'd expect the 305 to come in at a similar level when new.

Interesting shape...not sure about the red trim though.

More info. on the 305 here..

The Italian dealer who leaked the 305 as coming out on Feb 06 - see link here..

i emailed the guys i got my 301 off (was one of the first batches in the country).

feb06 sounds early, apparently supply of the edge305 bike computer has slipped to late january so i'd expect it a while after that.

may be pleasantly surprised tho'

As long as it's there in time for my birthday in april {wink, wink, nudge, nudge...}

(And only the other day my other half commented I'm not much of a gadget man...)

Bought my 301 nearly 3 weeks ago and I had same problem with PC not recognising presence of the device once connected. Garmin sent me a replacement disc to install SW etc, and that cured it..

Still have concerns over graphical display times not displaying same total as trip times, but no-one seems to have similar issue.

Ref : The SportTracks software, does anyone have problems with system retrieving map background ?? Mine's keep saying "connection to the map server is temporarily unavailable" ??

monty.. that sporttracks problem is usually related to being behind a firewall or something like that. check out the forums on their website for support.

I'm vaguely thinking of getting a Garmin. What exactly is so bad about their software and why is eg. Sporttracks better?
23/11/2005 at 15:52
Ed - I'm using this at work (and not only during my break, of course), but I fear that if this is firewall related, my IS department would love to hear my explanation on how this could be construed as work related..

Suggestions ?

yup monty... i cant get maps from work either.

think i may have read something on the sport-tracks forum about downloading and caching the maps.. but i dont recall fully.

RB - the garmin SW last i used it was a bit basic.. and the maps are limited esp. compared to sporttracks using google earth road maps or satellite.

I already use Memory Map to plot my routes (manually), so presumably that would be no problem?

RB - i guess not, assuming you have a version that supports the garmin interfaces. although i don;t know if MM and the like do anything useful with the heart rate data.

The Edge 305 looks very interesting as it has a Barometric Altimeter! I really hope this feature makes it into the Forerunner 305 - that will keep all us hill running types very happy indeed!

Finally got the blasted 301 software to function,.. just gotta figure out how to use it now. So i wont be trading it in for a polar for now..

To be read in the voice of Homer Simpson:
"Gah drool gah... ForeRunner 305... grlgl.."

Doh, just when I was happy with my 301!

PS: You GPS users may be interested in - it's a site I've set up for runners to swap GPS routes with each other.
