Oregon 300 vs Vista HCx

Weston G., Amazon
24 November 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.

Good, with flaws

Shane, Amazon

  • Summary: We got one of these to replace an eTrex Vista CX. The high sensitivity receiver and paperless geocaching were our main points for getting it. For those things, it works well. Being able to log caches out in the field, see all of the cache information -- including hints and logs -- is great.

disappointing

gypsy1, Amazon
26 April 2009
  • Summary: I waited for months to be able to afford to buy this unit, I have been geocacing for several years and have been anxious to upgrade my Garmin GPS60 and do paperless caching with one device. The Oregon navigates fine, generally as accurate as the 60.

Great upfront but leaves you wanting more

Beaux Pilgrim, Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: I read some of the comments about the problems with the Oregon, but I think they were played down. I went from a 60csx to an Oregon 300. I use my handheld gps for backpacking, day hikes, and street navigation.

Very expensive for some (trivial) missing features

Leonardo G. Holanda "L. Holanda", Amazon
10 November 2008
  • 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.

Not so good for sailing

Mr. William Sunnucks, Amazon
24 August 2009
  • Summary: We bought a Garmin Oregon for the Archipelago Raid, an endurance sailing event run in the Baltic in small catamarans. Although the software is as good as ever, we had trouble seeing the screen in sunlight and found it wasn't waterproof as claimed.

Schickes Gerät - zum biken (bedingt) ungeeignet

Roadhog, Amazon
26 June 2010
  • Summary: Suche Navi für MTB, habe mir zum Testen ein Oregon 300 geliehen. Nach nur einer Fahrt von 15 km ist mein Ergebnis: Fürs MTB unbrauchbar, die Displayhelligkeit ist bei max. Einstellung unterirdisch. Das ist für mich ein Hauptkriterium bei der Auswahl eines Navis fürs MTB.

Schlechtes Display, kurze Lebensdauer von Batterien kontra gute Bedienbarkeit.

Milan Rovensky, Amazon
30 September 2009
  • Summary: Auf den ersten Blick macht das Gerät einen guten Eindruck, aber wehe du willst mit dem Gerät draußen im Sonnenschein was unternehmen! Das Display ist bei Sonneneistrahlung nur schlecht leßbar, man muss die Beleuchtung voll einschalten und auch das bringt nicht wirklich 100% Verbesserung.
