I have a FR60. Mine does not have GPS, but other than that I love it. Next year I will get me one with GPS. Most of the people that have a Garmin love them. Mine is easy to use. I recently discover more that it could do. Just sit down and play with it. I have mine set to let me know when I am half way finish with my run. So it I am running an out and back I know when to turn around. But I just like knowing the half way point. Have fun with your Garmin Forerunner 405cx.

Hubby is getting me a Garmin Forerunner 405cx for the holidays. I'm excited. I'd like to know from other runners who have a Garmin what they think of it. I'm not very tech saavy, so I'd like to know... how easy is it to use? Also, how accurate is the GPS tracking? Currently I am using RunKeeper on my iPhone, but I've discovered that when I run around blocks, sometimes the tracking is skewed when I look at the tracking map. Meaning, if I'm running around in small circles, which I do often when I'm trying to build mileage without running too far away from my home, I don't feel like I can trust the tracking as much. It seems fine if I run in a straight line for longer distances.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
