5 out of 5 stars   Garmin Oregon 400 GPS
By AussieinOrlando (Orlando, FL) June 10, 2012
Review submitted for Garmin Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator (GRORG450)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good dual-purpose GPS, Good Waterproofing, Can add free maps, Rugged, Easy to use, Lightweight
Cons:
Other Comments: Great dual-purpose GPS. Can navigate to co-ordinates as well as do turn-by-turn navigation (no speech-to-text, however). Many free maps available from the Internet that work well with the GPS, both routable and topographic. Can pickup satellites inside although it takes several minutes compared to less than one minute outdoors-should work well in areas with limited l.o.s. to satellites.

4 out of 5 stars   Workds Well.
By Steve (Honolulu, HI) February 11, 2011
Review submitted for Garmin Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator (GRORG450)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Elevation Chart, Accurate, Easy To Use, Well Made
Cons: Mapping Software, Eats Through Batteries
Other Comments: I use it hiking in Hawaii and after some initial confusion on how to use it (this is my first GPS) it makes sense now. It is pretty useless with the pre-installed maps and you need to purchase or find free topo maps for the area in which you will be using it. You need to find an install MapSource to install most free maps from places like gpsfiledepot, but MapSource is hard to find without paying for a map set from Garmin. Luckily, installing their Training Center software comes with a version of Mapquest which can be upgraded to the latest which can be downloaded from Garmin for free. Mapquest doesn't do much more than help with installing maps as it is not compatible with most features of this GPS (like creating and transferring waypoints), so I needed to download and install BaseCamp (free from Garmin). BaseCamp makes creating and managing waypoints easy. I love the touch screen and although it does swipe as smoothly as a device like and iPod Touch, makes menu navigation easier. It takes a while to connect to satellites and does not work indoors, but once connected it is very responsive and accurate. It does chew through alkaline batteries, though so rechargeables are a must. So far, I am very happy with my purchase.

4 out of 5 stars   Once you use it, you won't be without it
By Agronomist (Washougal, Washington) December 12, 2010
Review submitted for Garmin Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator (GRORG450)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Large Screen, Reliable Reception, Quick Signal, Quick Navigation, Intuitive Menu
Cons: Maps
Other Comments: I use the product for hiking and hunting in the pacific NW and Montana. Hiking/hunting in dense trees where you can't see landmarks makes ocular navigation difficult. This is a good product, however, I am not impressed with the maps that come with it.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quick Navigation, Reliable Reception, One Hand Control, Quick Signal, Extensive Base Map
Cons:
Other Comments: I go on quite a few back roads and jeep trails in Colorado. This Garmin has become really useful and effective once I downloaded topo maps of the mountains. Need new excuses now for the wife since I can't get lost
