posting this under a pseudonym to avoid the whip (work in the industry, and this hasn't been nationally announced yet, although I did find it using good old google)

Garmin Forerunner 305

Preliminary information indicates a Feb 2006 release date. It will be SIRF III enabled (enables the unit to pick up satellites MUCH faster, and get much more of a signal).

One Word: Drooooooooooool!

would anyone like to buy an only slightly used 301?

Just found in the cold weather that I can't pull my extra long sleeved top over the 301 to protect my hands from frost.

Now with this one I could..............:-)

Hi all... Can anyone help me pleeese.?? I ve just bought a 301, probaly a bad move due to the new one coming out, but hey ho.

Ive installed the software (training centre) onto my pc, but when i plug in the usb it cant find it, although the 301 charges ok. I have windows xp which should be ok?

Not sure if its me being a technophobe or a faulty unit?

i've heard this from a few people solly.

usually solved by uninstalling the drivers & downloading the latest ones from the garmin site.

OOOOh I was having a 301 for Christmas think I will wait:-) any ideas on price?

I have had a 201 for about 4 months now.
At the end of the summer it was fine, but now not so good.
Seems to be affected by dense cloud and loses the sattelites.
Now if cloud is an issue this device should not be sold in the UK !! :-)
Fortunately I have sport tracks software rather than the garmin piece of crap. This means I can edit my run once its downloaded to show an accurate route.
Like the look of this.
Anyone want a dodgy 201 ??!!!!!!!!!!!
