Re: [RC] [RC] Garmin Forerunner 205 reviews - April

I have a Forerunner 305 (same receiver as the 205). I used it at Hoosier Daddy this past weekend.  I was very pleased with its performance as we went in and out of heavy woods and up and down the hills there. My unit did worlds better than a Forerunner 201 and much better than my friend's Forerunner 301. Very pleased. It never complained about losing satellites and the track is nice and smooth.

Hey Ridecampers,
Been using the Garmin Foretrex 201 for training and rides for about 2 years now and am looking for a bit more accuracy in forested trails which is a great deal of what we do in our sport. The thing works great without woods all 'round, but have to start calculating for straightlining as soon as we enter woodsy areas. I'd say I usually figure on  25-30% error in my distance and mph numbers.
I've heard they have a new unit with a new receiver that does well in canyons and folliage. Anyone using it that can give a review?
