Garmin Foretrex 401 Wearable Wrist GPS
The Garmin Foretrex 401 is a slim wrist-mounted GPS navigator perfect for outdoor activities that require the use of both hands. Foretrex 401 combines a high-sensitivity waterproof GPS receiver, electronic compass and barometric altimeter into a lightweight device ideal for hikers, skiers, campers and military personnel. To share data easily, you can connect Foretrex to your computer with USB or just send data wirelessly to another device.
Complex Features, Simple Usage
Both the Foretrex 301 and Foretrex 401 feature high-sensitivity GPS receivers with HotFix for improved performance and reception in heavy tree cover or deep canyons. They also incorporate a trip computer, sunrise/sunset times and hunting/fishing information and can connect to your computer via USB. Both units support dual position readout so you can view your current location in multiple formats, including latitude/longitude and an alternate position format of your choice. This feature simplifies navigation for professional, military, search-and-rescue and recreational uses.
Retrace Your Steps
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. Keep track of your bearing and altitude with Foretrex 401's electronic compass and barometric altimeter. You can save locations in memory as waypoints, so you can always find your way back to any important place, like your campsite or vehicle. And with up to 17 hours of battery life and replaceable AAA batteries, you'll never worry about making it back.
Track Your Data
Foretrex 401 lets you create and store routes to all of your favorite places and provides other helpful information, including a trip computer, sunrise/sunset times and hunting and fishing information. For even more data, connect Foretrex 401 to a wireless accessory, such as a heart rate monitor, cadence sensor, or clip it on your bike with the accessory bike mount. To keep track of your trip, connect your Foretrex to your PC or Mac with USB to store your waypoints, routes and tracks on your computer. You can also share waypoints, routes and tracks wirelessly with another Foretrex 401.
Military personnel can use the "Jumpmaster" function for static, HAHO (high opening) and HALO (low opening) jumps, making it possible to set data points for under-canopy guidance to a landing zone. Based on forward throw and windspeeds at altitude, Foretrex will calculate your HARP (high altitude release point) for the best results every time.
Top of the Line
In the same family, the Foretrex 301 (click here) has most of the features of the 401, but lacks an electronic compass and barometric altimeter. Foretrex 401 is also the only model that allows you to wirelessly share routes, tracks and waypoints between certain Foretrex, Oregon and Colorado devices, and it is also compatible with Garmin heart-rate monitors and cadence sensor.
