    Exactly what we hoped it would be

    It’s what we hoped it would be. A wearable comfortable gps.

    Pros: Not too bulky. Intuitive menu options.
    Cons: A little clunky to manually add Coords.

    Excellent Little GPS

    Love this little device. Marked base camp and turned the 601 off. Eventually I did get lost, turned the 601 back on and easily worked my way back to base camp. Battery life is excellent. Would Highly recommend to anyone.

    Pros: Does exactly what is suppose to do.
    Cons: Nothing So far.

    Easy and Compact Device - Highly Recommended.

    A simple and easy GPS device to use. I recently purchase this device to use at work in the bush in exploration drilling. I needed a small and compact device to be able to mark the location and then be able to track back to the location. The Fortrex 601 has simply delivered and gone above expectation with this device. The buttons are easy to navigate and overall system is straight forward. The screen resolution is great and the battery life is excellent. GPS acquisition is very fast and there is plenty of space to store the tracks and way points. There is no cons to this device but I would love to see an improvements in a sense to include the unit to be recharge via cable and have rechargeable batteries so that I could plug it into a battery pack or a small solar panel for recharging rather than keep exchange batteries.

    Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Good display, long battery life, Fast GPS Acquisition, Lightweight

    Another great Foretrex!

    The 601 is simply another great Foretrex GPS - lightweight, accurate, easy to read but with much improved battery life. Garmin has really delivered with this device. The USB port is now housed in the battery compartment, a better arrangement than the plastic plug in the previous model. Only time will tell if the new wrist strap attachment is stronger than the previous models. I've used every Foretrex from the 401 on. The weak point on the predecessors was always the wrist strap attachment or water in the USB Port. Mind you I work my GPS hard.

    Pros: Long Battery Life, Clear Display & Protected USB Connector
    Cons: None

    Good improvements to popular GPS

    A nice improvement on the ever reliable Foretrex series. Comes with better screen resolution. Now able to use several options for bands. Battery life is as advertised. GPS acquisition is very quick. Plenty of room for storage of tracks, routes and way-points. Auto updates of firmware via Garmin Connect Mobile App or Garmin Express (although Garmin Express software seems to have problems once the Foretrex 601 is added to it. Program operates OK in background but fails to open up?!) Only negative is that Garmin advertise that the unit comes preloaded with Basemap but this is not the case. (Not that it matters to me as I do not need basemap but Garmin need to fix up their advertising.) All in all a great unit for basic navigation as a complement to map and compass.

    Pros: Fast GPS acquisition. Easy to use. Improved screen resolution. Light weight. Great battery life.
    Cons: Garmin specs say the unit comes preloaded with Basemap. This is incorrect. Garmin Express doesn't like the addition of the 601.

    Hi Mark, you are absolutely correct - the Foretrex 601 and 701 do not have a basemap, or support mapping on the unit other than showing waypoints, tracks, and routeson the map page. We have notified Garmin head office of this error, and requested they update their website (we are updating our specs too, which were based on Garmin's).
