    Garmin Oregon 600t GPS

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Garmin Oregon 600t GPS is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big improvement over old Oregon This review is mostly aimed at current Garmin Oregon (and similar Garmin unit) users who are wondering if the new 600-series units are worth the upgrade. In a nutshell: yes. I have used a Garmin Oregon 450t for 2 years. It's a great little GPS but it has a few major drawbacks. First, the screen is basically illegible in daylight: it's simply far too dark. Second, the touchscreen just seems ancient and pathetic compared to modern smartphones and other touch devices like tablet computers. It takes a lot of pressure, reacts slowly, and still misinterprets many of your inputs. Just terrible. And perhaps the greatest offense of all was how easily the unit would interpret your touch of the screen as wanting to drop a pin on the map, which you could not cancel without it bringing you back to centered on your location. Otherwise the software was good, the Garmin topo maps are useful, and the software interface is reasonably intuitive. So, in comes the new 600-series. It definitely fixed the bad parts of the old system, and generally improved on the good parts too. I don't have a ton of time on my new unit, so I will just focus on the basics. First off, the screen is much (MUCH) more visible in bright daylight. It is also far sharper and less pixelated than the old screen. Colors are saturated and bright. The touch input is also vastly improved. It's not quite as snappy and responsive as your high-end smartphone, but it's close. Pinch-to-zoom, panning, and such all work pretty well. It no longer misinterprets every panning swipe as dropping a pin, and even when you do accidentally place a pin on the map (by tapping in one location), you can cancel it by tapping an 'x' by the pin's name. Finally! Getting through the menus is painless, and though things are somewhat rearranged, you will get used to the new layout pretty fast. The map redraw is also speedier and the menues react faster than on the old units. You can set the 'user button' (a second button below the power button on the unit's side) to turn the screen off and on (or many other user-set functions). This saves power when it's in your pocket and prevents accidental inputs. This way you don't have to lock the screen all the time. I did try it with gloves on, and the input was not very accurate or responsive. If you have some thin, form-fitting gloves you may have better luck, but if I want to do much with the unit I will be taking my gloves off. The form factor has changed a little. The new unit has most of its face made from glass as opposed to a recessed, smaller, plastic-feeling screen on the old unit (the actual viewing areas are the same). The shapes are slightly different though the overall dimensions are largely unchanged. The new unit costs more than my old 450t did and basically offers the same features. I thought technology was supposed to get cheaper over time, while still improving. Oh well. This is still a noticeable upgrade over the old Oregon and fixed my major gripes with those models.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great GPS, not great directions This GPS is easy to read, easy to use and provides very accurate navigation. Setup was a little difficult as there were not very good directions. The installed manual was missing and the one online was not completely accurate. I was able to figure it out with a little work. Even so, once I got past the setup issues, I found the interface and programming fairly easy to use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pricey but useful versatile I have used both older model hand held GPS units while hiking and newer advanced marine GPS units for coastal navigation. This small hand held unit combines the small size helpful in hiking with the detail available in larger gps units. The optional regional topo maps bring added detail to the mapping but at some additional cost and installation required assistance from Garmin Tech Support as a result of some older software on the unit. I purchased the unit for a trip to New Mexico which involved travel off defined trails and found it to be an asset in planning an outbound route and navigating the return leg using a different route. Overall, while it is a costly purchase, the unit is impressive and versatile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good So far overall I like this unit. The unit feels good when in the hands and the touch screen works well. I wish it was a little easier on the batteries but that is to be expected. The user interface is easy to move thru & much improved over the other Garmin products I have used in the past. I don't understand why when the gps is set to "hiking profile" thou it will not allow to set and navigate to another waypoint. It seems to want to find a road or street while in this setting. I have had luck when hiking using the "recreational" setting however. I would suggest something to protect the screen, after a 4 day hike by screen has several scratches on it & I have no idea how it happened, I thought I was being careful. I purchased the Birdseye View to go with this, I still have have not made my decision on that software yet. Sure it gives satellite view, but you cant really get any details from the picture that you download to the GPS.
