    Hi

    I've had my Foretrex 401 for a few days and I'm having trouble understanding how to record and then save the track I have just completed.To say the manual is hopeless would be flattering Garmin! Frankly, I'm shocked that Garmin would turn out something quite so inadequate.

    I have had various attempts at getting it to work but only managed to record part of a track earlier today. I have also trawled Google to get answers - which is how I ended up here.

    If anyone used one of these devices (or related ones) and wouldn't mind taking 15 minutes to respond I would be very appreciative.



    Many thanks,

    Mike

    Welcome to this forum!

    I've written my own manual for the Foretrex 401 to replace the disgraceful 'instructions' that come in the box.

    I've sent you a private message.

    I know it has been some time, but if you are still available could you send me that manual too? Thank you so much,

    Sorry, I posted that message more than three years ago and I no longer have my private manual.

    There is a fairly comprehensive online manual. If you search on Garmin Foretrex 401 manual google shows a link for garmin support and there is a list of options for the manual.
