Re: Garmin Oregon

I have owned a GPS for about 16 years. The first GPS was a Garmin 3Plus. It just gave up the gost and they say they cann't repair it. I have ordered a Garmin Oregon 450T because it comes with the topo maps installed. I also ordered a vehicle kit, marine holder and a bike/cart holder. I will down load the (g2) Atlantic coastal navagational charts, The inland lakes for the South East. I currently have the Map Tech topo maps for the state of NC, and AK. I also have the Garmin enhanced maps of Canada. It will be interesting to see how much better the new Oregon will be compared to the old 3Plus. The cost of the Oregon wholesale at Jerry's Sports south was about $60.00 more than I spent for the 3 Plus 16 years ago retail.

I have an Garmin Avation GPS for flying, combo GPS depth sounder for my boat and a NUVi for my truck.

GPS is way simpler to use and much more compact than the loran was.

Re: Garmin Oregon

So far the Oregon 450T with the extra Maps has been the ticket. I have been very pleased with some learning curve to get over.

Thanks Much
I would recommend the units with the topographical maps (400t, 500t). The "T" stands for topo maps which cost you around 100 bucks to buy anyway. I believe the only major difference between the 400 and 500 series is the 500's have a built in camera.

I love my 400t. Carry it every place I go. Get some land ownership maps and you will not regret it.
