    Garmin Oregon 650t GPS is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful battery life and glitchy I bought the 650t as an upgrade from a failing 60csx. Even though I was happy for several years with the performance of the 60csx it started shutting off on its own with just the slightest of jarring. I was excited to get a touch screen, more waypoints, bigger screen and a camera. None of these features are worth it because of the following reasons: Normal use drains the rechargeable battery in one day, if you use the anemic camera it will last less than that. Alkaline batteries are next to worthless so you have to buy the expensive lithium disposables. At one point on a trip near Mt. Rainier the GPS showed I was moving when I was still standing still. My trip computer said I was moving like 10mph as I was sitting on a rock, consequently screwing up my location and my trip odometer. This happened more than once. The "profiles" or whatever you call them always change to annoying settings and mess up the interface. Now there are some good features but they are overshadowed by these major flaws. You would expect a device that costs almost $600, one of the most expensive handheld GPS out there, to not have these issues. I also use this GPS for work and I can't afford these shortcomings. It is also hard to find a waypoint you just plotted. On the 60csx you can easily find waypoints just added, on this device you have to search by the name of the waypoint. Tedious. I will be returning mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from requires practice This is the first time I'm using a hiking GPS. It's very much different than using a driving GPS. I recommend going for several short walks around your home to figure out the features and menu structure. I found it was very easy to create a waypoint, but very difficult to figure out how to delete it. However, once you figure it out, it's easy. I notice that if I put the unit in my pocket I need to remember to lock the screen beforehand. Otherwise my destination might be changed. In the Where to? menu, the Point of interest database is incomplete, so if using the device in a city or suburb I may not find a useful point of interest nearby. Thus I am required to use my smartphone to do that job, or I will have to purchase CityNavigator from Garmin. Searching for a point of interest is slow, as though there is a slow hard disk inside. I would like to be able to view State Plane coordinates. I found a web site that can convert lat/long or UTM coordinates, but it would be nice if this unit could do it for me. The unit is kind of bulky and heavy. The unit is expensive. However, with all my complaints, the unit seems to fulfill my needs, which is to navigate where there are no cell phone towers, making my smart phone navigation useless.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good readale screen. If I were to purchase again I would get the 650 and buy 24K maps separately. The 100K maps do the job, but are short on many details. If you don't lock the screen, it will reset itself into anoying modes. I have done complete reset many times to recover from this. The belt clip if attached interferes with the camera. I used customer service to answer a question, and they were great! My next cell phone may replace this- Looking at latest revision of Casio commander, and Samsung active. It would be nice to carry one less device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great GPS Unit! I upgraded to this unit from a GPSMAP 62STC and am pleasantly surprised. The touch screen makes it MUCH easier to navigate through menus, the interface is intuitive and effective. I am waiting for Zagg to come out with one of their nice screen protectors for this unit, my only fear is scratching up the nice screen when I am using it on the trail. My only complaint is the battery life, it barely lasts for 2 full days of hiking and there is no alarm or warning with the battery is about to die and shut the unit off. Hopefully Garmin reads this and incorporates some sort of audible low battery alarm into a future software update. I had the unit strapped to my pack and thought it was recording my tracks and unfortunately it had ran out of batteries hours earlier so my tracks were never recorded, frustrating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from update on replacement unit This is a follow up with my replacement Oregon 650t. Rei was great in replacing the first one. The second one has no problems. Works great. Reliable as are most Garmins. Love the gps. Easy to see in bright sunlight and the dark. Rechargeable battery takes long long time to charge, but lasts as advertised. Take some lithium batts for backup. Highly configurable and tons easier to operate than GpsMap62s. Camera flash works great as flashlight too! Quicker response than Dakota 20, Map62, Rino 650, to scrolling maps, feels like using an iPhone. Build quality is the Best I've ever seen on this kind of gps units! The built in 100k topo maps are good enough to use unit as basic Nuvi car navi. It really works like a cut down version of my 3490 ltm Nuvi without traffic or voice commands and responds of course. It only beeps before indicating a turn ahead. I have lots of gps units...this is the best in 2013.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Life I have had the Garmin 650T for several years now. I use it primaraly for backpacking. I have seen many review comment that the battery life is short. I disagree!! When I first started operating this device I would leave the 'back light' on and several other functions that are not needed. When those features where on, battery life was only 4-6 hours. Turn off the back light, and a few other un-needed functions. My battery that came with my device will last me up to 10+ hours with these features are turned off. I probably put this device to it's complete use and have put close to 1,000 + miles on this device through the mountians.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New 650T Garmin Oregon! This is one of the best GPS units I own. Have the Map62s, Rino 650, Dakota 20, and now the Oregon 650t. My two favorite units are the Rino 650 and the Oregon 650t. Highly recommend it, but be careful that some units shutdown for no apparent reason just when your not paying attention. I'm on my second unit. Firmware upgrade should fix this. My first unit actually seemed to get worse... Also, the unit is a little heavy. The whole unit is really rugged. The glass seems almost scratch proof and crack proof. This is much nicer than the plastic screens of any of my other Garmins. The level of applications and the touch screen navigation are a big plus for this unit. Now, I don't bother with my Map62s. This is smaller, almost as accurate for canyons, and a lot smaller. I still take my Rino as my primary GPS, can't live without the constant weather alerts for flash floods in slot canyons. Recommend this unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best you can get I have a Rino 650, GPSMap62S, Dekota 20, and Oregon 65t. The Rino and the Oregon are my primary and backup gps for backcountry adventures. The Oregon is the best overall;however, the gps is hard to tell if the unit is really in sleep mode or off. I find often that the battery is dead because I didn't really turn it off and only turned off the screen. Take extra AA backup batteries with you always and you will be fine. Battery life could be better, but with solar charger or AA backup battieres, you will be fine. The amount of information, ANT+ support, customizable screens, and fast rendering of 24K maps is really well worth putting up with a slightly short battery life. Plus, it is vertually indestructable!!
