    still on my first got it a few months ago
  • Hi Sue, its a wonderful bit of kit but not everyone has a problem with it (hopefully). Will soon be able to download RW training schedules direct to unit. Once it goes wrong (if that is) Garmin give you another years warranty apparently.
  • Harry - I have a 301 that is working fine at the moment. As much as I'd like to upgrade, I think I'll wait until all the gliches are sorted first!!
  • Are there real issues with the reliability of this thing?

    I was thinking of asking Santa for one. But now have my doubts
  • I know at least 10 people with this piece of kit, including myself and none of them have had any issues at all. I don't know what you folks have been returning your units for but I certainly haven't had any problems.

    Of course, one must have realistic expecations of what the device can achieve. It's the leading device in it's class but of course there are limitations to the technology.

    Cheers

    JJ
  • JJ read the other threads units just die / will not charge.

    Garmin have admitted this just one of a number of known faults.

    You and your friends lucky so far.

    My second unit lasted three days, said it was charging but just died.

  • JJ for an electronic device a reliable battery / charging system is essential don't you think?

    Although its beginning to be very temperamental, only manged 1 run with it retaining satellite lock in the last week, and this over the same course that's I've run a 50 odd times without problem! Last run it said I covered 98 miles in 48 minutes!
