Installing Batteries
The Foretrex 101 operates on two AAA alkaline batteries (not included), which are
placed in the back of the unit. Rechargeable alkaline, NiMH, NiCad, or lithium batteries
may be used. Refer to section “Set System Page” for instructions on selecting battery type.
Stored data will not be lost while batteries are being changed. However, if batteries are
completely discharged and are not changed within a couple of days, it may take longer for
the unit to get a GPS signal fix.
Overview
Getting Started
To install the batteries:
1. Remove the battery cover by inserting a coin in the bottom slot. Twist the coin to lift
the cover up and pull away.
2. Compare the battery polarity with the diagram in the battery compartment and install
the batteries accordingly.
3. To re-install the battery cover, slide the top portion into the appropriate slot, then snap
the bottom section securely to the base of the unit.
NOTE: When replacing batteries, use only new or fully charged batteries. Do not
mix Alkaline and NiMH batteries. Rechargeable batteries may typically display
less capacity than disposable batteries. Extensive use of backlighting and key
beep tones will significantly reduce battery life. Remove the batteries from the
unit if you do not plan to use it for several months. Storing batteries in the unit
for long periods may result in leakage and damage to the battery compartment.
NOTE: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper care and disposal of used
batteries. Do not incinerate used batteries, as internal materials may ignite with
explosive violence.
Installing AAA batteries into the Foretrex 101
Battery usage icon shows an
estimate of battery life left. Four
squares with the battery outline
indicates new batteries are installed
in the unit.

Overview
Getting Started
Turning on the Foretrex 101
After you have placed the batteries in the Foretrex 101, it is ready for use. Allow the
Foretrex 101 time to track satellites and determine your position the first time you use it.
Upon startup, the GPS signal bar appears. As the Foretrex 101 locates more satellites and
the signal strength increases, the bar moves to the right. Estimated GPS accuracy displays
underneath the GPS signal bar. Refer to the previous page for battery installation information.
To turn on the Foretrex 101:
1. Press and hold the POWER button until the Satellite Page is displayed, then release.
Satellite Page
2. Your Foretrex 101 automatically begins acquiring satellites. The GPS signal bar and
accuracy fields are shown on the Satellite Page as well as an image that is acquiring
satellites. The satellite dish icon on the left side of the screen flashes while the Foretrex
101 determines your location.
3. Leave the Foretrex 101 with a clear view of the sky for 15–30 minutes initially. After
the first use, it should only take less than a couple minutes to acquire satellites.
4. When the Foretrex 101 acquires enough satellite signals to determine your location, the
satellite dish icon on the left side of the screen stops flashing.
NOTE: If you have moved over 500 miles from the location you last used your
Foretrex 101 unit, or you have not used your Foretrex 101 in more than one
month, it may take 15 to 30 minutes to determine your location.

Using the Tracks Menu Page
The Foretrex 101 draws an electronic breadcrumb trail or ‘track log’ on the Map Page as
you travel. The Track Log contains information about points along its path, including time,
and position. The Foretrex 101 uses this information to allow you to navigate using the
saved track.
The track log starts recording as soon as the Foretrex 101 gets a location fix. For the
best results, clear the track log before you start traveling because when the track log is full,
the new track points overwrite the oldest track points. The percentage of memory used
by the current track log displays at the top of the page. After the Track Log is ‘Cleared’, it
displays zero percent. When the display reaches 100%, the most recent track points start
to overwrite the least recent track points (if ‘WRAP WHEN FULL’ is ‘YES’). To avoid losing
track points, save the Track Log when it approaches the 99% mark.

Route Leg Transition: Select a method to start guiding you to the next leg of the route.
Select ‘AUTO’ for the unit to automatically start guiding you to the next leg. Select ‘DISTANCE’ to enter a specific distance to start guiding you to the next waypoint. This option is
especially helpful for people on hang gliders, sail boats, or other forms of transportation that
require more advanced warning of the next leg than normal.
Distance: Press ENTER to enter a specific number of feet from the next waypoint for the
Foretrex 101 to begin guiding you to that waypoint. For example, if you enter 1000 feet,
the Foretrex 101 will begin guiding you to the next waypoint (the next leg of the route)
when you are within a 1000 feet radius of that point.

Map Datums
A map datum is a reference model of the earth’s shape. Every map uses a map datum
which is usually listed in the title block of the map. The default datum in the Foretrex 101
is WGS 84 (World Geodetic Survey, 1984). You should only change the datum if you are
using maps or charts that specify a different datum. Choose the ‘USER’ datum if using a
map with custom-designed grids.
NOTE: The ‘USER’ datum is based on a WGS-84-Local datum and is an advanced
feature for unlisted or custom datums. To learn more, check your local library or

User North. Refer to the following section, “North Reference,” for complete information.
Defaults: Press ENTER to set the unit’s System settings to the factory defaults.
North Reference
‘Reference’ refers to the orientation of a map’s grid. Map makers try to align the vertical
lines on a map with True North, the direction from any location on the earth’s surface to
the ‘north pole’. Maps are typically referenced to true north. Because a compass points to
magnetic north, not true north, maps indicate the difference between true and magnetic
north with a measurement called variation. The amount of declination changes as you
move around the earth. Magnetic North is the direction in which a compass needle points.
Due to errors introduced when map makers flatten the earth’s sphere onto paper, not all
of the grid lines drawn on the map point exactly to the north pole, so the north indicated by
the grid lines is called Grid North. The difference, however, is usually small enough that
‘Grid’ north can be considered the same as True North for travelling on land. If necessary,
manually correct for the difference between Grid North and True North. If ‘User’ is chosen,
you must correct for the magnetic variation.

this feature requires a working knowledge of these formats:
GARMIN: The proprietary format used to exchange waypoint, track, and map data with a
PC.
GARMIN DGPS: Allows DGPS input using a GARMIN beacon receiver and a standard
RTCM SC-104 and DGPS tuning.
NMEA Out: Supports the output of standard NMEA 0183 version 3.0 data.
Text Out: Allows ASCII text output of location and velocity information without input
capabilities.
RTCM In: Allows DGPS input using a standard RTCM SC-104 format without output
capabilities.
RTCM/NMEA: Allows DGPS input using a standard RTCM SC-104 format and supports the
output of standard NMEA 0183 version 3.0 data.
RTCM/Text: Allows DGPS input using a standard RTCM SC-104 format and simple ASCII
text output of location and velocity information.
None: Provides no interfacing capabilities.
If ‘GARMIN DGPS’ or ‘RTCM/NMEA’ format is selected, additional fields are provided to
control a GARMIN differential beacon receiver (e.g. GBR 21 & GBR 23) directly from your
unit. In the ‘BEACON’ list, select ‘SCAN’ to tune automatically, or select ‘USER’ to manually

WAAS: The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) capability produces a more accurate
position fix. When enabled, the unit searches for a WAAS satellite near your location and
then receives data for correcting differentials in the GPS satellite signals and the WAAS
satellite numbers (beginning at No. 33 or above) display on the Satellite Page. It is helpful
to orient the unit antenna toward the WAAS satellite shown in the skyview. To learn more
about the WAAS System, access the Federal Aviation Administration Web site at
http://gps.faa.gov.
Battery Save: When the Foretrex 101 is in ‘BATTERY SAVE’ mode, the GPS receiver turns
on and off alternatively to conserve power.
Demo: The ‘DEMO’ mode is designed for dealers to show the features and functions of the
Foretrex 101 to potential customers inside a closed building where satellite reception is not
possible. There is no navigation possible in ‘DEMO’ mode. If you select the ‘DEMO’ mode,
a window displays at the bottom of the screen asking you to verify that you want to turn the
GPS off (the unit will stop tracking satellites, but not power off).
