Excerpt: Handheld GPS navigator for use outdoors, in a car, or on a boat * 3" LCD touchscreen display (240 x 400 pixels) with built-in picture viewer * WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) capability improves GPS accuracy to within 3 meters * electronic compass and barometric altimeter * short-range wireless transfer of data to other Garmin Oregon and Colorado navigators *
Summary: Garmin has provided a competitive handheld GPS device with the Oregon 300. It provides a full touch-screen experience in combination with a rugged casing and vital navigation tools. We would have preferred more detailed maps, but Garmin has provided room for expandability — making this an excellent choice.
Pros: Full touch screen, attractive and minimal design, user-friendly interface, expandable memory, preloaded base map
Cons: Provided maps aren’t detailed enough, display isn’t readable in direct sunlight, slow acquisition times, 3-D view isn’t available with preloaded maps
