Overall: Excellent and reliable piece of equipment, transforms your running experience. I definitely wouldn't be without it and love the freedom of running wherever I fancy knowing time, distance and route are being recorded for me. Large memory means I can look back over previous runs. Backup software enables in depth analysis and comparison of performances. I bought my first FR201 in Jan 2004 and was very pleased with it. It locked up inexplicably after about 18 months and the Garmin Customer Support team advised me of various ways to unlock it. Unfortunately it could not be reset so they replaced it at no charge even though the guaratee period had expired by about 6 months. That's what I call service! ! ! The replacement has exhibited no problematic behaviour.
