Summary: Everything is convenient. It is a refurbished item but looks absolutely like a new one. Good price. The latest models are more expencive and do not have sufficient advantages. I bought it because my old B/W GPS was very difficult to use and it was working too slowly.
Summary: First thing I want to say is....WHY doesn't the $300+ GPS unit come with a lanyard like the Oregon 200s? I had to take a star off for this reason. OK......this is my first touch screen GPS unit and I'm truly impressed with the amount of functions it has. It's easy to mark points and name the point with the touch screen. This unit will track satellites anywhere (except indoors from my experience) while under thick canopy of trees, during a rain storm, and in a vehicle.
Summary: After much reading and opinions I saw a Garmin 200 in person. I immediately bought one and the experience has been great. Easy to use , easy to upload on Garmin Connect at no charge. Will recommend this product to everyone. Of course Amazon had the product to me sooner than the date they gave me.
Summary: Muy BUENO EL GPS Garmin Oregon 200. ya que me hacia mucha falta para mis trabajos persanales. Claro que luego lo voy a cambiar por el Oregon 550 ya que trae camara. pero a este (200) le he sacado el jugo (usado mucho)GRACIAS.
Summary: This unit is great for the price. Highly accurate, lightweight and compact, fast satellite acquire times, and you can load lots of free topos for various parts of the country. You can also load aerial photos, once they are georeferenced. I've purchased 8 of them in the past year for my work and they are the best deal out there. I've connected them to both PC's and Macs with no problems. I would highly recommend these to anyone.
My favorite GPS so far..... only wish it could hold more than 2,000 caches

Summary: I use my Oregon 200 primarily for Geocaching. This is the 3rd handheld gps that I have owned. The accuracy is VERY good. The touchscreen makes entering coordinates and field notes extremely easy. I do have to say though, the screen is challenging to see in daylight. Also, as Geocaching goes, my complaint is that it only holds 2,0000 geocaches at a time. It seems like a lot, but I like to keep mine ready to go and have the caches already loaded.
Summary: I have an Orgeon 200 which I used on a caribou hunting trip in northern Quebec. I also own a Garmin etrex (not map capable)and 2 Magellean Tritons. I use the Garmin Oregon in Canada with the TOPO Canada maps loaded into it. I like the big screen and the touch screen features. The Oregon is much easier to use and read than the Tritons which have a smaller screen and lots of tiny buttons and a tiny hard to see cursor.
