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: 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.
Summary: Bought this for my Garmin 300 to attach to my KLR650. I've put it through a few rough offroad rides and have have zero problems with the mount slipping and my GPS was held securely the entire time.
Summary: I am liking my Garmin Oregon 300 very much. I had a Megellan but was unable to download "geocaches" from their web. It is much more user friendly than the Megellan. It was recommended to me by a friend and I am very satisfied.
Summary: Would recommend this one for anyone. extremely easy to use. Mostly use it for geocaching. My 10 yr old has no problem using it. connects quickly and does well in the woods. I would buy it again. Might get the update for the street maps.. excellent purchase.
Summary: I've had a number of GPS devices, including a MAP60CSx, and the 300 is the best yet. When combined with Garmin Topo maps, the device is terrific for its versatility, it s reconfigurability for different uses.

Summary: I actually love my Garmin. This is a handy little gadget and was exactly what I needed in a handheld GPS system. I bought my Oregon 300 three months ago and have now used it extensively for hiking and traveling on the road. It's portable and easy to use.
Summary: I can't say enough good things about the Garmin Oregon 300! I bought it to replace my old Magellan Meridian Platinum, and haven't looked back! I use it in my 4x4 off-road and on-road, and take it on hiking and camping trips. Reliable, accurate, and good size to boot.
