To share data easily, you can connect Foretrex to your computer with USB or just send data wirelessly to another device.
Good concept, poor satellite link
Pros: Easy to set up, easy to use, easy to view, easy to review.
Cons: VERY poor satellite signal time, I mean, 20 minutes to get a signal in open area!? Come on, my car GPS gets signal in less than 10 sec. My buds all have this unit and used in Iraq and other countries, they love it and told me that I got a lemon. Who knows.
Other Thoughts: I think this unit should also have a way to use the ant-pod for training, it will be also nice to be able to monitor pace on each mile / whatever pre-set distance.
