  • 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.

  • 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).

Oregon 300 without the touch screen

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

Garmin Colorado 300

CNET
7 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Terminé la multitude de boutons en façade des précédents modèles, ce Colorado arbore une façade épurée avec seulement deux boutons, mais, contrairement aux apparences, pas d’écran tactile. Une absence compensée par la grande molette située au dessus de l’écran (le Rock'n'Roller dans le jargon Garmin) avec laquelle on se familiarise rapidement. La liste des menus est accessible en un clic et l’interface est agrémentée d’icones agréables.
  • Pros: Prise en main, adapté à un usage extérieur, réception GPS
  • Cons: Usage routier
