Navigate  the world hands-free with Foretrex 601 and Foretrex 701 with AB Elite™  software — the durable, wrist-mounted GPS navigators built to military  standards. Keep your bearings nearly anywhere with GPS, GLONASS and  Galileo satellite systems. 

Tougher Than It Needs to Be

Foretrex  601 and 701 navigators are beyond durable. They’re built to military  standards for thermal, shock and water performance (MIL-STD-810G). They  also include tactical features such as compatibility with night vision  goggles and Jumpmaster mode.  

Multi-GNSS Navigation Includes Galileo

Both  Foretrex 601 and 701 work with 3 satellite navigation reception  networks, including GPS, GLONASS and Galileo, to track your position in  more challenging environments than GPS alone. Explore longer — battery  life exceeds 48 hours in navigation mode and lasts up to 1 week in  UltraTrac mode.  

Navigation Sensors Keep You on Track

To  guide you on and off the beaten path, Foretrex 601 and 701 provide  comprehensive navigation and tracking using GPS plus ABC (altimeter,  barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. The built-in altimeter  provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while  the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing  short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps  your bearings, whether you’re moving or not.  

The Most Accurate Ballistic Solver Available

Foretrex  701 with AB Elite software is an excellent aid for hunters and target  shooters. It comes equipped with Applied Ballistics Elite software to  calculate aiming solutions for long-range shooting.
