In addition to Foretrex 401, Garmin also introduced its little brother today: the Garmin Foretrex 301.

Foretrex 301 is quite similar to 401, except that it lacks the electronic compass, and the barometric altimeter. In addition it is slightly has a lighter color and supposedly will last up to 18 hours (instead of 17) with only 2 AAA batteries.

Garmin Foretrex 301 is rugged and waterproof, boast a sensitive GPS receiver with HotFix that quickly acquires and maintains satellite reception. It keeps track of where you’ve been so you when turn on the TracBack feature, it will retrace your path right back to where you started.

Foretrex 301 feature dual-position readout so that you can view your current location in multiple formats, including latitude/longitude and an alternate position format of your choice.

Also no wireless sharing your tracks and waypoints on 301. Only 401 has this feature.

Garmin Foretrex 301 can store up to 500 waypoints, 20 routes or a tracklog of up to 10,000 points and 10 saved tracks.
