Garmin Forerunner 910XT

 

Perfect for the busy triathlete Flawless so far in the pool measuring distance Has worked brilliantly for running and cycling (my commutes) Garmin connect / auto upload with ANT+ removes all hassle

The size really, but even that is not terrible Buttons take more pressure than I would like to press sometimes Garmin connect didn't work first time but was sorted quickly.

Product Specifications

The eTrex Venture offers a worldwide database of cities and increased internal memory. It is also one of three eTrex units that are designed to provide precise GPS positioning using correction data obtained from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). This product will provide position accuracy to less than three meters when receiving WAAS corrections. The memory capacity of one megabyte allows the eTrex Venture to accept downloaded information from Garmin's new MapSource Points of Interest CD-ROM. The CD enables users to download locations such as restaurants, hotels, shopping, and entertainment. Once the information is loaded into the unit, you can make a selection and telephone and address information for a particular point of interest will appear on the screen. The CD also includes marine data such as lights, buoys, wrecks and obstructions. The eTrex Venture comes housed in a stylish, translucent green case.
