Love this Garmin

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I picked up the Oregon 500 because you can download Topos for free (Google it) but they may not be as accurate. Great GPS for geocaching, which means that this is accurate. I would recommend purchasing the Garmin NiMH batteries as you can go through batteries like nothing. The great thing is that the unit is designed so that you can charge it through a USB when plugged in. Awesome!

Awesome piece of equipment

    The "T" comes pre-loaded with topo maps so you don't have to go out and buy any. Compact and light weight yet still easy to use and read in most light conditions. Batteries go a bit quicker than I'd like but I have a solar charger for that. Camera isn't the best at only 3.2 mp, but I used to map my hikes with my cell phone and take pics with it too, and the camera on that is only 3.2, so no changes there. The cool thing is it tags the photos with the location and on top of that it is now a multi-use piece of equipment so you don't have to carry a GPS and a camera. Finds satellites fast, comes with a caribiner to easily clip to the back of your pack. Looks to be built tough, but I haven't tested that yet, but looks really stout.

    The BC's price is strange - Oregon 550T...

    The BC's price is strange - Oregon 550T GPS on the Garmin's site runs at $499.99. What is the trick here? Has BC somehow upgraded the device?? Where does the indicated regular price of $599.95 come from?
