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: This is my second Garmin GPS. The first one, an Etrex Legend, starting giving me problems just out of the warranty period; the joystick stopped working. This unit was gently used, never dropped, never got wet or abused in any way.
Summary: If we like to do Nature sports like orientation or geocaching, Garmin oregon is a very good choice. His portability, and his batery save program made this device a first choice. In city or holidays, Garmin city navigator maps are a very good and helpful tool. Nice style, nice GPS accuracy.
Summary: This is my third Garmin and the best I've had! The touch screen is very user-friendly and easy to input coordinates. The GPS sensitivity is very consistent and precise! I have geocaching friends who prefer my Oregon to their Colorados! If you can step up to the Oregon, it's the way to go!

Summary: Recently bought the Oregon 200. It is super fast at acquiring and seldom drops out. Installed base map is chintzy and out dated. 10 years ago my city was bypassed by the major highway US 97. Didn't happen according to Garmin! It still shows US 97 running through the middle of town.
Summary: + Touchscreen + Durability, water resistance - Hard to read - glare, low contrast - Inconsistent speed and alitude readings - Only works with ENELOOP batteries (not 2 other types of NiMH batteries that I tried.
