oregon 300

S. Herring, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: The Oregon 300 is a great paper saving machine. Love this for geocaching, giving on road as well as off road directions, seeing all of the description, hints & logs. It does seem that Garmin could have made it easier to go from page to page without always going back.

Great GPS, But

GA-Hiker, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: This is a great GPS. The reception is unbelievable. You can get 5 bars inside the house. The screen is easy to use. This was purchased for my 12 year old son who was able to use it immediately without using the owner manual.

My new best geo-friend!

E. Fogg, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Still learning the capabilities but already love how much easier it is to cache with this than my previous unit. Some of the menu cadences take some getting used to, but all said, a real thumbs-up. Good battery life but screen could be brighter.

Great BUT...

N. Winters, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Wow... super... I really love the functionality... Battery life is a little "short" with standard alkalines, and the way you load a GPX file for Geocaching really can't be beat... the built in GC symbols, and touchscreen interface make this thing the Cat's A$$ of Geocaching GPS units, however...

Quality piece of equipment

P Desenex, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I have owned this device, my first gps unit, for 3 months. It is a rock-solid device and has a very nice feel to it, a sort of tacky-rubberized band around the outside edge , which keeps the unit from slipping around in your hand.

Oregon 300 vs Vista HCx

Dayspring, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I have done an extensive evaluation of the Oregon 300. Here are my comments. The Good: -Touch screen makes entering and managing waypoints much easier. -The car navigation screen is much larger and easier to read. -The topo maps have the ability to be shaded in 3D for better situational awareness.

Very expensive for some (trivial) missing features

L. Holanda, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Pros: - Sat locks really-really fast, even in partially closed rooms. - Profile creations are very useful for different purposes. - Excellent precision for tracklogging - It's the only garmin "on the trail / outdoor" product with touch screen feature.

Garmin Oregon 300 for Geocaching

Geo. Cache, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: The touch screen on this is a definite improvement over the Colorado. When going for geocaches in the woods, you can change screens easily with one hand. And, like the Colorado, the big advantage over other Garmins for geocaching is the cache description and hints.

Great GPS

T. Kneebone, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Oregon 300 after a year of fighting a Magellan Triton 500. The last straw was the Triton becoming a paperweight during a firmware upgrade. Anyway, after getting a replacement Triton I tested the two side-by-side, both loaded with topos of an area with which I am familiar.
