I've been using mine along side my Montana 680t and I've seen very little if any difference at all in GPS. Especially with the most recent firmware update. I have used it hiking on four long trips and it was spot on in the central cascades/Olympics. I love my Fenix 3HR. My only issue is sometimes the sleep monitor accuracy sometimes thinks I went to bed to early. Lol. Other than that I use it for cycling, swimming and even paddle boarding and it's been awesome.

nice find. I've been trying to buy one of these for months and can't find them discounted. Most places don't let you use coupons on these. But now I felt like I've waited so long for it, that the next gen ones are around the corner, I'm not sure if i should wait. Nice find though.

Weird. I read this review and did you notice the date!!! Keep piece of info if you learn to read... Most up to date firmware. Lol. I read DCR daily too. And do you own one?

lots and lots of complaints with the gps accuracy with Fenix 3 HR/Fenix 3

https://sporttracks.mobi/blog/gps...athon-2015

within the same link you posted by dcrainmaker, search the keyword "accuracy"....lots of people complaining within that article

I don't own one but my dad does (purchased as a gift for him), he's especially having issues when there is tree covering during a hike, the reported distance is just all over the places....
Eventually he gave up on it and went back to a cellphone and a tracking app.
