Awesome GPS

  • Excerpt: The quick start guide was ok but I didn't get it all figured out until I downloaded and printed the manual and spent a day hiking with it and trying many of the functions. I was deciding between the Montana and the Oregon. I'm happy with the Oregon. Its compact but easy to see in all light conditions. Waypoints are easy to add and edit. I'm using lithium AA batteries instead of the rechargeable batteries and they last a long time.
  • Pros: Accurate, Extensive Base Map, Intuitive Menu, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls

Garmin Oregon 650t GPS

  • Summary: I have had the Garmin 650T for several years now. I use it primaraly for backpacking. I have seen many review comment that the battery life is short. I disagree!! When I first started operating this device I would leave the 'back light' on and several other functions that are not needed. When those features where on, battery life was only 4-6 hours. Turn off the back light, and a few other un-needed functions.

Garmin Oregon 650t GPS

  • Summary: This is a follow up with my replacement Oregon 650t. Rei was great in replacing the first one. The second one has no problems. Works great. Reliable as are most Garmins. Love the gps. Easy to see in bright sunlight and the dark. Rechargeable battery takes long long time to charge, but lasts as advertised. Take some lithium batts for backup. Highly configurable and tons easier to operate than GpsMap62s. Camera flash works great as flashlight too!
  • Pros: Accurate, Extensive Base Map, Intuitive Menu, Quick Navigation, Quick Signal, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Feines Produkt, noch ein paar Bugs

  • Summary: Ich nutze den Oregon zum Trail-Running. Er hat sich auf den ersten 300km als sehr brauchbar erwiesen. Die SW hat noch ein paar Fehler, aber nichts, das die nutzbarkeit wesentlich beeinträchtigt.

  • Pros: Display, Bedienung, Funktionsumfang, Robustheit
  • Cons: ein paar unwesentliche Firmwarebugs, die hoffentlich bald behoben werden
