Garmin ANT+ Technology Flexible Wireless Sharing

The technology that is powering more and more of Garmin's devices these days is called ANT+ wireless technology. It's a short range wireless technology that Garmin gained when they bought Dynastream back in December of 2006. The technology allows the Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) to talk to the Forerunner 405, or the cadence meter to talk to the Edge 705. The interesting thing about it is that you can start to pair these device add-on's with other equipment. Upgrading from the Forerunner 305 to the Forerunner 405? You can bring the HRM from the older Garmin and use it with the new one.

The ANT technology is also the wireless protocol in the new Garmin Colorado series, which allows the handheld units to talk and exchange routes and waypoints. The Colorado can also accept a HRM and/or cadence monitor to record that information if you were to use your Colorado on a bike.

Garmin Blog has more information on the ANT technology.
