What do you all think about this Garmin touchscreen GPS?
Garmin Approach G5 Touchscreen Golf GPS
I have a Garmin 450 and it rocks!! The one you show is for golfers, but basically the same format. I have downloaded Landowner/BLM/State/federal maps and even elk migration routes for free from: GPSFileDepot - Garmin Compatible Custom Maps. Montana Landowner Topo V3. UPDATED 01/22/2010 Garmin Compatible Map - GPSFileDepot
Just pick the state you want and download!
I would shop around for a better price than the site you picked. Here are a few that I have used:
Amazon.com: Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator: Electronics
Garmin Approach G5
Garmin Approach Golf GPS Best Prices!!
Universal mania has the oregon 550 for $411, that is a steal if you want a camera on your gps. Garmin Oregon 550 Worldwide Handheld GPS - Universal Mania Inc.
Thanks for the help!
What is the best Garmin for your money ? I have been looking at the
Garmin Colorado 300
I've also heard great things about this Garmin Colorado 400i:
Garmin Colorado 400I
(Plus this site has great prices)
The 400i is only $230 here. Garmin Colorado 400I - Garmin Colorado 400I deals - Garmin Colorado 400I bargains - Garmin Colorado 400I deals - Handheld GPS Receiver - 010-00622-51
FWIW--I would get the Oregon 300 rather than the colorado for the money, the roller wheel is kinda awkward and not near as user friendly as the touchscreen.
You can get an oregon 300 for $279 now that the 450s have arrived in stores.
Garmin Oregon Touch Screen GPS at The GPS Store
If you know someone wanting a new oregon 450, you can get one for $335 here
On top of that, Garmin has $50 rebate going on now!!
$285 for a garmin oregon 450!! That is a smokin deal!!!!!!
I just got a Garmin ique 3600a for $30.00 on ebay has a large screen and will hold 2 gigs of maps. I know it is not a nice as the Colorado but $30.00!!
buttons are better
They are on shirts, LOL!
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.
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??
I have the 62st best one I have to date I have built custom map sets for mine put them all on a 8 gig micro sd card even put city navigator on it. Thats what I really like about it auto navigate also just like the ones you use in a automobile. Best price today search Amazon.
