Let the GPS capabilities of the Garmin Oregon 600 lead the way on your next outdoor adventure. This handheld navigation device will indicate your current position and lay digital breadcrumbs showing where you've been. The GPS unit's 3" sunlight-readable touchscreen displays your position in an easy to read manner. You can choose between landscape and portrait modes for the best possible view of the map or data you are trying to interpret. An included world basemap features shaded relief to help make physical features stand out. A 3-axis compass is built-in so you will always know your heading. An altimeter lets you know how far you are above sea level, and can help predict weather trends. The unit runs off two AA batteries or the optional rechargeable NiMH pack.

This unit utilizes both GPS and GLONASS satellites for quicker signal acquisition so you get a fix on your position approximately 20 times faster than GPS alone. The receiver also can interpret Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) signals so you can receive information from terrestrial antennas even when your view of the sky is obstructed. The WAAS system also provides greater position accuracy overall. Adding to the GPS technologies, this device also features HotFix satellite prediction which uses an algorithm to mimic the movement of the Earth. This technology allows the receiver to quickly regain satellite connection after a couple days of non-use eliminating long initialization times. A worldwide basemap is stored on the unit's internal memory so you will always have an idea of where you are.

The unit's built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass shows your heading even while standing still, no matter how it is positioned. It also houses a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude so you will know your distance from sea level. The included advanced elevation plot software lets you see the entire elevation plot created by your travels and quickly move your zoomed view to any place on the graph. Future plot uses your mapping data to show what to expect on the trail ahead. The altimeter also lets you plot barometric pressure over time which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

The Oregon also features built-in paperless geocaching software, so you can transfer your data to your computer with the supplied USB cord or upload it onto the Web. The internal memory allows you to store up to 4 million unique caches, so you don't have to pick and choose what to upload before your next trip. The unit's screen displays key information, including location, terrain, cache difficulty rating, and hints and descriptions of hiding spots. All of this means no more manually entering coordinates and paper printouts for your geocaching hobby.

You can wirelessly share your data and images using the built-in Bluetooth connectivity. Exchange photos, geocaches, adventures, routes and custom maps between Oregon 600-series devices. Store up to 4000 waypoints on the receiver's built-in memory as well as 10,000 points, 200 saved tracks. A micro SD card slot lets you load TOPO 24K maps for hiking, Trailhead Series TOPO maps for famous trails, BlueChart g2 charts for boating, or City Navigator NT maps data for turn-by-turn routing on roads.
