A Big Disappointment

Mike Jones, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought a Colorado 300 at a local chain store retailer (Best Buys) at a good price, but that's where the good news ended. I'm not into geocaching but wanted this for marking locations on trails that I use for wild mushroom harvesting, so I could return to the same spot one year later.

Garmin Colorado 300 Handheld GPS Receiver

Indyarcher, Hunting & Fishing Gear
27 July 2009
  • Conclusion: The Colorado 300 was a good upgrade for me. It works every day, on my job, getting me to new places, finding faster routes than I can think of and finds detours easily. During fishing season I use it to set my trolling speed of my outboard motor.
  • Pros: After using this unit for over a year I can say that it has been very reliable for me. I can get updates for the base software from Garmin's website (after registering unit) until the unit is no longer supported. No extra fee. The DVD's routable mapping software does work great. Exterior controls...
  • Cons: Petty grievances I have with the unit are that it will eat regular alkaline batteries in short order. Also, any saved "bread crumb" tracks cannot be deleted by a menu driven deletion. I need to use a computer and find the track file to delete it. I need to be really careful not to delete somethin...

UGH

V S, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: Repeat after me: "I will never take this camping. Just like my aluminum water bottle" "Press ONE for ENGLISH" "Doesn't work with MOST SD cards" "Will be obsolete in a year, like all 37 other Garmin models that are released every six months" "All accessories for this unit are lower quality than...

New generation of Garmin GPSs

Stepan Cenek, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I've used two other Garmin outdoor GPS before and I was expecting this new device. After a month of using, I'm almost decided to switch back to Garmin 60 CSx. Colorado +: - display - gc listings - holders (car, bike) - wig Colorado -: - battery consumption - gc listings (listing is sometimes bad...

not as bad as the oregon but still not great

David Smith, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I tried the Garman Oregon with the topo maps and immediately returned it. The problem was, that unit in bright indirect light, the map was not visible. The Colorado, with the green shaded base map it came with was not much better, though better than the Topo map (less information than the Topo map).

This is a cool unit

JCC, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I replaced my 60CSx with this. I have to say that it's a good replacement. It's definitely a step up from the 60CSx. The display is definitely sharper. The 3D map view is awesome.

Pathetic

Charlie, Amazon
22 May 2009
  • Summary: I've owned multiple GPS units over the years, including $10,000+ marine units. Generally had great experience with Garmin. But the Garmin Colorado is a waste of money. Worldwide basemap only sees state highways and above. That's right, for $300+ you get a worthless navigation unit!
