Hi Mike,mike3legs said:Well I managed to pick one up today off ebay total cost to me of £105:50 so I'm quite happy with that. I just can't wait till it gets here.:d
Thought that might be the case!!Hollywood said:stupot - you have to buy one... you just have to... My other half gave me so much grief 3 year's ago when I bought my Timex SDM, but since last Xmas when she bought her Garmin 301 she's been inseparable from it!
Wow, want to send 'yer mrs round to our place, maybe she can have a word with the wife??? :dhammerite said:My gf and I had a discussion at the weekend, initiated by her.......
Her: how much are Garmin 205/305's?
Me: Not sure, I'll look into it, why do you want one?
Her: No, but I'd like your 201, a 205/305 would be a waste for me as I wouldn't get the use out of it, but I could have your 201 and we could get you a 205 or a 305.
Me: I like your thinking!
Thanks for the advise Mike!!mike3legs said:I like the 301 it has been a fantastic purchase for me. Definately helps me to keep going. And I found one at the right price. I have heard it said that the 305 is good if you run under trees or near high buildings otherwise the 301 is pretty much just as good in fact for some with small wrists the 301 can be more comfortable.
Check out E-bay for some excellent prices.
Hollywood. I haven't yet but the good news is I have convinced the wife that I need one. So I'm watching a few on ebay. At last!Hollywood said:I wore Shiraz's 301 for the first time yesterday - used it to pace myself round 26.2 and I have to say it was superb - especially liked the lap times and lap pace used with the auto lap feature.
I like the idea of the 305 and custom screens even more... but think I can see myself buying my own 201 or 301 off ebay quite soon now...
Stupot - have you bought it yet?
The very little known Orpington Marafun - very lovely race - definitly not scenic or flat, but very friendly - toilet stops were at people's houses; carrying and using the course map was essential; and the cake at the finish was superbsteepler said:Which 26.2 did you run?
stupot said:Garmin up-date.
I finally bought one from ebay, got it for around £100. Can't wait for it to arrive!!!
I heard of a few different programs which you can use. I've also heard you can use it in conjunction with google earth?? If so, can you still use it with the free download?Hollywood said:Yippee! Well done! And I promise I didn't bid against you!
When it arrives there are quite a few other PC program you can use with it - things like SportTracks - but Shiraz just sticks with the supplied Garmin app.
Have fun - but be prepared for the 301 to rule your life now! You'll spend a minute a run standing on the doorstep waiting for it to get GPS lock
She's ruptured her achilles tendon, playing netball. Likeliood is she's going to be in plaster for 10 weeks!stupot said:Oh dear! Sounds nasty.
I'm bidding on one on ebay. Stay away Hollywood!!!!
