It would be great if Garmin could integrate an "ID" button that will display your contact information when pressed. Something like an integrated RoadID.

What do you guys think?

I think this would be a great feature for Forerunners! It should be easy enough to access even people that does not know the device at all - maby showing ID information at device startup already until view is changed or something. I hope they will take this request in.

During most runs we have to fill in forms with medical information.
If all sport watch suppliers would embed a simple ICE-feature I'm sure that faster&correct emergency response could be achieved.
Summerized:
ICE function could be activated by e.g. pushing simultatious all keys which resultes in displaying owners details and medical information and contact person. see also:
