Summary: A great GPS for a great price. I use a GPS in my work, for travel, and hunting. I really like the big touch screen, expanded memory compared to other models, and the improved sunlight readability. The electronic compass is very useful.
Summary: I've been using this for geocaching for the last 6 months now, and once you've used this for geocaching (with a premium account), you won't use a non-paperless unit. The unit is remarkably easy to use, thanks to the touch screen. This is a good thing, because the manual is very lacking.
Summary: As an avid photographer, I use this GPS for geotagging my images with location information after the shoot. The Oregon 300 allows me to do this easily. I simply synchronize my camera's clock with my GPS's clock, create a new tracklog which updates at 1 second intervals, and start photographing.
Summary: HARDWARE Oregon series feels sturdy yet light. It is a beautiful device from a hardware standpoint. SOFTWARE We expect a modern GPS to do more than provide GPS or UTM coordinates. In 2010, there is a high expectation of convenient map management.
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.
