    The Garmin Foretrex 401 was purchased when my ageing Magellan Explorist finally failed to boot.
    The Garmin was quicker out of the box in acquiring satellites and position fix, and accuracy apears to be better.
    The compass function is, of course, imperfect but still perfectly usable for my primary purpose (geotagging of photos). The compass may require occasional calibration.
    Battery life with two brand-new freshly charged Maha Powerex 1000s is about 16 hours, with the light on for over 6 of those hours. Older, nearly failing batteries with several hundred uses on them gave me about 3 hours.
    The lack of mapping capability isn t an issue with my current use, and seems a reasonable compromise with the compact size.
    Storage capacity is limited, I ran out of space for tracklog storage with 9 tracklogs of about 20 miles (<2 hours travel) each.
    The .gpx file opens easily in GeoSetter.
    As others have noted, documentation isn t the greatest, but I have found it easy to use.

    Bought this for my son, going to Afghanistan to find his way home. This is recommended by the soldiers.

    This GPS is handy for equestrians for trail riding and competitive trail riding. Big, simple screen, yet GPS is small enough that it is worn on the wrist for easy viewing. Batteries last long enough for a weekend of riding.
