Nice - but issues with trip odometer

Tibber, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • Summary: After using this product while hiking in the field for the last 4 months, I discovered that the odometer is off by 1/4 to 1/2 mile depending on the length of my hike. It adds the 1/4 mile fairly quickly.

Many great features, and extra maps available (for a cost)

  • Summary: We got this Garmin Oregon (with preloaded topo map) as a Christmas present for the family. We do a lot of hiking, camping, hunting and other outdoor activities where it's nice to have a map and a compass. It's the first GPS we've ever owned, so I don't have anything to compare it to.

Great piece of safety gear!

  • Summary: I'll keep it short and sweet. I bought this to go hunting in the New Mexican mountains. I didn't get lost, I found all my way points and I didn't break the bank getting a GPS. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because it kept telling me the battery was low after only a few hours of use...

Good, Not Great

  • Summary: The Garmin 450t is very good, not great. Very quick to find location, nice size and functions. Bright sunlight makes viewing difficult at times but not impossible. The topo quality with the included 100k was poor so purchased the 24K micro card for my area, major improvement.

good product for hiking and keeping from getting lost or turned around

robert b kaplan, Amazon

  • Summary: works well, simple but batteries do not last long and the lithium ones recommended are very expensive at $2 per and if not in saver mode are gone in a day.. with saver mode, last only 3 or 4 trips, so bring spares or item not useful at all.

Great GPS unit!

John Lesmeister, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: Have been using this unit for about a week. Bought it for hiking excursions but thought I'd try it out with Geocaching with the kids. Worked perfectly and can't wait to use way out in the middle of no mans land.

Bought it for geocaching

  • Summary: Seems to work pretty good, but not intuitive to use. For example, I still can't figure out how to enter coordinates and use them for a search.

Love to Geocache

Babopp22, Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this Garmin for my geocaching hobby. I'm still learning to use it, but so far I'm very pleased with it, other than it does seem to eat batteries. I am going to get rechargeable batteries for it.

  • Summary: Love the Oregon. I have been using the unit to geocache. It is very user friendly. I would give it a five star if I was able to delete items in the field.
