No matter where your adventure takes you, you'll never worry about getting lost with the Foretrex 401. Foretrex keeps track of your path and displays it as a dotted trail on the screen. Just turn on Foretrex's TracBack feature, and you can retrace your path back to where you started.

The kinda thing Burt Reynolds would have

We were still dragging Dagger's around Iraq, and we thought those were the bees knees because they weighed slightly less than a cinderblock. But the Foretrex 401 is fantastic. Weighs a little more than a wristwatch, and is always accessible since it's on your wrist (or whatever body part you pick; I'm not judgy). I'm still an old-fashioned map-and-compass guy, but its great having the 401 along as well.

Reliable, Accurate, and User Friendly

I use this GPS frequently for work. It never fails me and is very easy to use. Extremely durable. I've dropped it, stepped on it in the dark, and scraped it on metal. This thing stands up pretty well to miserable desert conditions and that can't be said for most electronic devices.My only complaint is so nit-picky I don't even think it counts as a con. I wear it on my wrist and it only straps onto the wrist one way: with the long axis of the device parallel to the long axis of my arm. I have small wrists so it falls down and partially covers the back of my hand after a few minutes. I just take it off and strap it to my gear when it annoys me, but it would be nice if it could be rotated 90 degrees.

Five stars all the way. Dead on accuracy! No questions. I'm also getting the Garmin Premium Heart Rate Monitor to go with it, I hope it works out.

Im using this as a GPS speedo and compass on an electric scooter I bought. Seems very accurate and also will track your route and total miles as well. No, its not a color displaybut it does everything I need it to. Very happy so far.

Solid piece of equipment

Very solid product. The more I use it the more I like it. The wireless sync feature is handy if you have multiple people trying to get the same waypoints. Extremely accurate as far as location goes, the only issue I've had with it is that when I plot a waypoint, it sometimes tells me to go in the opposite direction. I have better luck at the �Drawing screen. All in all though, a solid, handy little piece of equipment. I and several others just used these during a field excercise, and they held up extremely well. This is such a great piece of equipment that myself and several other squad leaders bought our own when supply said they couldn't get them.

Works great. The only initial problem I had was that the device doesn't come up with the screen shown on the webpage for the product I thought that I had received the wrong model. But their customer service told me how to get to that screen it WAS the correct model.

This is a must have for all military personnel. Unless you're SF or in other specialty units you do not need a newer version.

Use this as a corridor monitor for the A.T., so I can go back to any encroachments I find.
