Summary: Well this is my fifth GPS, buying about three Magellen's and an earlier Garmin ETrex, I found this much better, more sensitive than the ETrex, and with the colored screen easier to see things compared to the black & white of the Etrex. The ability to add memory is also a great asset.
Summary: This is the smallest, most versatile GPS at a reasonable price. Just add the North American Cities NT on MicroSD card and you'll be in operation in minutes. No interfacing with PC or special software required. Land, Marine, Cycling, even navigation directly by air. You'll always know when you're flight is getting in, much sooner than the pilot will announce Add the included carabiner clip and this is the most compact and accurate GPS today.
Summary: I've never had a GPS handheld before so I relied a lot on the reviews of others when I made the decision to get the Oregon 450 base model. I've had it just one month, used it to record my travels as I have ridden my bike on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake of Utah, so this is my initial evaluation of my purchase. I have a camera which takes great video and stills, a Canon Elph 100HS, so I didn't need a GPS model with a camera.
Summary: We use this Oregon 450 for geocaching and love it. We have had one for over 3 years and gave 2 as gifts. After comparing the Oregon to other GPSs, we found it to be the best geocaching tool out there. The 450 is a great model to use for new and experienced cachers. It also works great for Wherigo. This is easier than most to learn.
Summary: EASY EASY EASY, everything is easy about this handheld. I like to wander when I'm in the woods, and I feel very confident that I can go where I want, and find my way back with no problems. I do recommend that you recalibrate the compass (EASY), after changing the batteries.
Summary: There are more expensive units out there, and possibly better ones, but for the money, this is the best you're going to get for your investment. Paperless geocaching, easy to import pocket queries (you have to have a premium acct with Groundspeak, of course), and easy to upload your activity to your account. I have found the accuracy (assuming good satellite availability) to be within 3 ft. That's the gold standard for geocaching, if you don't know.
