  • Excerpt: Thanks to an easy PC interface, downloading routes and uploading tracklogs is a cinch. However, rather annoyingly the unit locks itself when connected to the PC (meaning you can’t carry out other tasks) and switches off when it’s disconnected. The new iPod-style scroll wheel takes getting used to but works well, even with gloves, making navigation through the pages easy. ...

  • Excerpt: Gear up and explore the backcountry with the all-terrain Colorado 300. Packed with features, the Colorado 300 includes a built-in Basemap, high-sensitivity receiver, barometric altimeter, electronic compass, SD card slot, color display, picture viewer and more. Just take your pick from Garmin's preprogrammed SD cards including street maps, topographic maps, coastal charts or inland lake data of the US. You can even exchange tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to navigating, I’ve always steered clear of GPS. They present two fundamental problems: instructions (which I can’t be bothered to read) and batteries (which I don’t want to buy or carry). Then they have a habit of losing contact with satellites when you need them most. And, let’s face it, the outdoors is the very place to ...

Garmin Colorado 300 review

GPS Tracklog
4 February 2008
  • Excerpt: The Garmin Colorado 300 is one of the first in a new line of handheld GPS receivers from Garmin. It has a completely new interface, very different from the eTrex and 60/76 series units. I’ve had mine for a couple of weeks now and have been enjoying getting to know it.

Oregon 300 without the touch screen

Good Gear Guide.au
22 November 2009
  • Summary: The Colorado 300 provides a slightly cheaper, non-touch-screen alternative to the Oregon 300. With both models proving good combination automotive/handheld GPS devices, the decision largely comes down to your preferred control scheme.
  • Pros: Unique control scheme, good quality display, wireless sharing function, configurable profile changes
  • Cons: Case isn’t tightly sealed, mapping isn’t detailed enough

18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: De Colorado 300 is de jongste loot in het Garmin geslacht en van een geheel nieuwe generatie. De ‘specs’ van de 300 mogen er zijn: een 7,6 cm kleurenscherm (behoorlijk afleesbaar in fel zonlicht), 65.000 pixels (kaarten nu ook in 3D mooi weer te geven), 348 Mb harde schijf (je kunt er foto’s op zetten), SD-slot, agenda, hoogtemeter, geocache functie, draadloos naar andere Colorada’s zenden en ontvangen en veel meer.
  • Pros: bediening, beeldscherm, menustructuur
  • Cons: bediening, batterij pieploos

  • Excerpt: Il Garmin Colorado 300 è un potente e maneggevole navigatore per i patiti delle attività all’aria aperta. Risulta decisamente pratico da usare grazie alla presenza della rotellina Rock ’n Roller governabile con il pollice della mano. Può essere utilizzato per l’escursionismo, sulla mountain bike, per il paracadutismo o il parapendio ma anche a cavallo, in auto o sulle piccole imbarcazioni.
  • Pros: Basemap mondiale precaricato
  • Cons: No mappe incluse

Garmin Colorado 300, туристический GPS-навигатор, непохожий на другие

HardwarePortal
15 November 2009
  • Summary: Наконец пришло время поставить точку и сказать, что Garmin Colorado 300 - это GPS-навигатор, точно спозиционированный на определенного пользователя и его определённые задачи, а именно на туристов, любителей экстремального отдыха и, возможно, спасательных служб. Почти каждый пункт из списка его характеристик - это достоинство, которое оценят представители данной фокус-группы.
