Summary: I wish it is linked to Google Earth so I can navigate globally. Plus, I wish they programmed an easier controls navigation. Screen is slow to 'swipe' and used up batteries quickly. Otherwise, I use it a lot as it is quite accurate.

Summary: I bought this as a backup to my gps. Took it to the keys and used it. It was awesome .charts are built in. Showed us reefs and wrecks . We speared slot of fish. Very easy to use with touchscreen. Glad I bought this . Although I already have lowrance and ray marine gps. This is convenient can take it on my flats boat ,kayak, or jet ski.
Summary: This is an excellent replacement to my Garmin Legend C, that had unlocked charts for several regions. With this unit, no unlock codes are needed. Bluecharts work accross the country and the SD Card slot remains open for other Garmin maps such as topo or City Navigator. Highly recommend!
Summary: I geocache and love the way I can download all the cache information right into the receiver, doing away with several steps and other gadgets. Is very accurate. I really didn't need the water information,but the price was right. does use batteries up pretty fast, that's not a problem. could be a little more user friendly on reading recorded notes. a lot faster loading data with windows xp than windows 7. Garmin people are very helpful if you have a problem.
Summary: Does some things well. Good magnetic compass, easy to enter way points. More difficult to construct routes because moving map easily changes zoom if you go over those controlls. Screen is rather small to use. Not unhappy with the unit. Will use it as a backup.
Summary: I was in the market for a waterproof hand held GPS for kayaking. The Oregon 400c comes standard with the coastal maps and is perfect for what I needed when kayaking the coastal areas of Florida. Reasonable battery life when in use and excellent easy to follow options for tracking your routes or marking waypoints. This little handheld has lots of features which I have not yet used but plan to in the future.
Garmin- In touch with what makes a great GPS+ delivers!

Summary: Garmin once again reads my mind, Like I said "Won't it be great if some GPS company would put coastal maps on a small handheld", And 'wallaha' Behold the Oregon 400c!!!! The Oregon packs a bunch of features into small package. In true Garmin form - It's very 'user friendly'.
