Garmin Oregon

I'm thinking of getting one of the new Oregon series Garmins. I just cant decide which one. I can't see the big difference between the 500t, 500, and 400t. I'll be using it in Alaska so I want it to be good, but I don't have a fortune to spend on stuff I won't use. Any Input................

Thanks Much

    This doesn't really answer your question but I spent a lot of time researching which GPS to go with for mapping. Just google it and you'll come up with many forum messages and opinions. I ended up with the Garmin 60CSx. It seemed to have the most positive comments. I haven't used it yet though. Good luck.

    I bought the Oregon 300 instead of the higher numbered models because I didn't want to pay for the bells and whistles in the more expensive Oregon models, knowing I would not use them. Good decision, very satisfied.

    Does the 300 have the topo map?

    I don't remember since I immediately started using a Garmin Topo map I already have, you can find oout online.

    Hi, I am using the Oregon 550 with public SD card from Montana maps and it has become the most important hunting tool I use.
