Apple or Google, please show Garmin how to make a GPS

rwg550, Amazon

  • Summary: There are three parts to a handheld gps. The first is the satellite reception and electronics. The Oregon 450T works well here. The second is maps. I am going to Peru and called Garmin to see if they have maps for Peru. No. So I am left to find them on my own.

  • Summary: Ordered this for the holiday, received it on time. Device is nice to look at, a bit bulky but the interface was easy to use. Was surprised that there were NO maps included with this costly device.

Poor resolution

Jeff Chart, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I would expect better resolution from such a tiny screen. It is such a turnoff that I may never buy a Garmin handheld again. Poor quality for the money.

On third unit in less than 5 months-think before buy.

Eileen Valachovic, Amazon
8 May 2012
  • Summary: This unit was a Christmas present for husband. He didn't use right away. First unit consistently killed one battery. When he finally called Garmin, the techs were helpful--the plus in his experience. The tech did a program update thru computer that helped for awhile.

Huge Discrepancies in Total Ascent and Total Descent. Disappointing support from Garmin

Nidal, Amazon
2 April 2012
  • Summary: Summary: Huge discrepancies in Total Ascent and Total Descent, and very bad support from Garmin. I contacted Garmin Support and reported +130 meters (430 feet) of difference in Total Ascent and -115 meters (376 feet) in Total Descent on a short trail.

Micha Nisani, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: Good concept , very good software BUT: The LCD screen is not sun-readable, its useless for outdoor activities. I hope that this issue improve in their new product Montana. Do not buy this model if you Bike / Hike.

grossly misrepresented product

Scott, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • Summary: Buyers should be aware, that out of the box, this unit includes what is called worldwide shaded relief basemaps. You might assume, like I did, that the beautifuly detailed screen image on the product beauty shot is this shaded relief map. NOT SO.

Screen mapping is terrible! Rated a FAIL

J. Wells, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I am a hiker in Oregon, USA and needed an upgrade to my Magellan 315 GPS. I read the reviews and decided on the Oregon 450t. OMG what a mistake! I have a favorite spot to hike in Central Oregon and wanted to get a topo view of the area by scrolling around on the (provided) map on the 450t.

Garmin needs to get it together

Ancient DIY'er "Gregg", Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: I received my 450T a couple of weeks ago and find it unacceptably inaccurate. I get an accuracy display of 11 to 14 ft with full signal bars on the device and it shows me 250 ft or more from my known location.
