Garmin Foretrex 601 and Foretrex 701

Garmin has released two new version of the very popular Foretrex wrist-mounted GPS navigator. The latest iterations are the Foretrex 601 and the Foretrex 701. What sets these models apart from the older generation is the GLONASS and Galileo satellite support (for both 601 and 701) and the included applied ballistics calculator (only for the 701 model).
The MSRP will be $249.99 USD for the Foretrex 601 and $599.99 USD for the Foretrex 701.

Both models are MIL-STD-810G compliant for thermal, shock and water protection.

Below are some of the features described by Garmin:

Multi-GNSS Navigation Includes Galileo


Both Foretrex 601 and 701 work with 3 satellite navigation reception networks, including GPS, GLONASS and Galileo, to track your position in more challenging environments than GPS alone. Explore longer — battery life exceeds 48 hours in navigation mode and lasts up to 1 week in UltraTrac mode.

Navigation Sensors Keep You on Track


To guide you on and off the beaten path, Foretrex 601 and 701 provide comprehensive navigation and tracking using GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearings, whether you’re moving or not.

The Most Accurate Ballistic Solver Available


Foretrex 701 with AB Elite software is an excellent aid for hunters and target shooters. It comes equipped with Applied Ballistics Elite software to calculate aiming solutions for long-range shooting.
