I'll second that motion. My b-in-law bought an Oregon. I thought it was the coolest thing since shirt pockets. Until I tried to navegate with it. The battery life is terrible. The touch screen isn't accurate to the touch. You have to actually touch it a little under the icon/image you want to touch. When I'm 6 miles from camp elk hunting, the last thing I want to do is re-do everything because of cold fingers or a finicky touch screen. I bought a Garmin GPS Map 62S instead and spent the whole week in the mountains on the first set of batteries. He changed at least once that I know of. I can opperate the buttons on the 62 with one hand and it's positive. No oops I missed,lets try that again.

Re: Garmin GPS

I've read a lot of good comments regarding the Garmin 62S...good battery life....buttons vs Touch screen...not losing signal under canopy...etc.

Is the 62S a current model or is there a newer version. I was at Cabelas a few days back and the person there made it sound like it was older so they did not carry them??
