18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: We use Garmin GPS's extensively for field work and currently rely on the GPSMAP 76 CSX. The Colorado 300 is a step backwards from this model and it was a big disappointment. The absence of multiple track display and the inability or difficulty to interface with third party software has made this...

Where am I?

Scott Cashen, Amazon
20 January 2009
  • Summary: Has Garmin forgotten that some people use GPS units to determine where they are? This unit displays position coordinates in an extremely small font, making them almost impossible to read without smashing your face up against the glass (and I have perfect eyesight).

Frustrating interface

Dominic N. Sotirescu, Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: The 300 has a few nice features, like the compass and geocaching support. But the interface drives you crazy. I develop software user interfaces for a business and have never seen something so frustrating. Trying to find a location by navigating with the up, down left, right keys is a nightmare.

Garmin Colorado - NOT ready for prime time

Eric C. Blumensaadt, Amazon
8 June 2008
  • Summary: The Garmin Colorado is a LONG way from being all that it should be for th price ov over $400.. Read the review if it on BACKPACKINGLIGHTWEIGHT.COM I STILL haven't got my 300 model's SD card loaded w/ the topo map. Don't use an "Ultra" SD card. Garmin says they don't work well with this unit.

We are now there (So near, yet so far...)

D. Harrison, Amazon
8 April 2008
  • Summary: When Garmin sent me the mail regarding the release of the Colorado 300, I immediately purchased off Amazon. I think I was a little too quick. (I was to quick, since the release of software for the Colorado 300 on 17th July, this is now a good unit.

  • Excerpt: Батарейки кушает на ура, приходится брать в запас по 4-6шт. Постоянно глючит, причем глюк выражается в зависании. Глядя на экран, ты не понимаешь, почему так долго едешь до точки, а ты оказывается уже давно её проехал, просто навигатор завис, и этот факт просто бесит!
  • Pros: Удобный корпус.
  • Cons: Нездоровый аппетит к батареям. Глючит постоянно, зависает, нетерпим к холоду, долго ищет спутники. Много всякой ерунды напихано.

  • Excerpt: В общем модель для "цивильных" людей западно-походного склада, для хождения по дорожкам от гостиницы до гостиницы. Дл машины можно достать и попроще. Для пеших болотно-чащобных походов - мне не подошёл.
  • Pros: Очень удобный интерфейс колесом. Нет тачскрина - не проткнёшь веткой в буреломе. По отзывам судя - хорошая антена, хотя в лесу на ходу спутники ищет минут 20. На открытой местности не на ходу спутники находит за 2-3 минуты. Даже в здании сигнал ловит. Достаточно увестстый и надёжный кирпич.
  • Cons: 1. Первое и главное - жрёт немеренно батареи! То есть как именно "нафигатор" для пешходника не подходит вовсе. У меня садится за пол дня ходу. Это сводит на нет все удобства. 2. Так и не смог найти возможности построить азимут и найти расстояние до точки на карте. Без этой возможности железяка бе...

Lovar mer än den håller

Alfi, Pricerunner
27 October 2008
  • Summary: Köpte Colorado 300 för arbete i skogen, jordbruket och fritiden. Helt enkelt lurad av infot. på Colorado 300. I min användning krävs arealberäknings uppgifter med minst 2-3 decimalers noggranhet på "ha".
