Conclusion: The Garmin Oregon 600 takes touchscreen outdoor recreation recreation GPS to the next level. This device is a huge improvement over all other existing touchscreen units we’ve tested, from all manufacturers. It’s easy to use and it feels modern , unlike most units that operate like arthritic donkeys. Garmin has also improved (over the 62, Dakota, and eTrex series) many other software and hardware components that make for easier navigation and general use.
Excerpt: The Garmin Oregon 600 brings the biggest update the Oregon series has seen, adding GLONASS capabilities as well as significant screen and interface improvements over the older Oregon 450. Since handheld GPS are such complex beasts and you could write an entire book on the Oregon 600′s functions, I’m going to focus my review on what’s new, starting with the hardware.
