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 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...

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.

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.

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.

Better than my last GPS, still room for improvement

J. Doll, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I've had the Oregon 300 for a few months and am very happy with it. I mainly use my GPS to record track logs on hikes and then use the data to geotag my photos. Signal quality is fine and battery life is about 16 hours.

Good GPS but get the 400t

JS, Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: The Garmin Oregon 300 GPS picks up satellite signals very quickly. I have even tested the sensitivity by checking for satellite signals while in my basement, without any windows nearby and it still picked up enough satellites to provide coordinates within 15 feet.

Intuitive to use

NL Oregon, Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time reading reviews before I bought this product and do tend to agree with both the plusses and minuses of other reviewers. I have found it to be wonderful for paperless geocaching and very intuitive to use compared to my Garmin Vista.
