Oregon 300 problems

mike s, Amazon
21 July 2010
  • Summary: I have a Rhino 530 and decided to go to the Oregon 300 for the larger screen and a couple other features. Big mistake! The screen is totally not readable in cold weather! I have used it about 10 times when the tempters have been between 25 and 5 degrees F and the screen just disappears.

Superb hardware shadowed by software nightmare

  • 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 actually had bought a Garmin gpsmap 60csx a few years ago (2007) but unfortunately had to return it because I was unable to use it with my macbook pro (i.e couldn't upload maps to the unit).

Not worth the money.

  • Summary: After using my trusty old Garmin Venture unit for over ten years, mainly for geocaching, I thought I'd upgrade to the all singing, all dancing, Oregon 300. Used it over the weekend for a few caches and didn't like it one bit.

  • Summary: Assez séduisant avec ses menus déroulants mais aussi déroutants...cartographie terrestre de trés mauvaise qualité pour ne pas dire illisible...
