Touch and Go
Oregon 450t leads the way with a tough, 7.62 cm (3 in) diagonal, sunlight-readable, colour, touchscreen display that offers crystal clear enhanced colours and high-resolution images. Its easy-to-use interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. With user-selectable dashboards, you can customise the appearance of your display. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 450t is built to withstand the elements; bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator.
Explore Backcountry in 3-D
Oregon's preloaded Europe recreation maps, 3-D map view and a built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief give you all the tools for serious climbing or hiking. Map detail includes national, state and local parks and forests, along with terrain contours, elevation information, trails, rivers, lakes and points of interest. Just in case you’re wondering how steep that hill really is, Oregon’s 3-D map view helps you visualise your surroundings, giving you a better perspective of the elevation.
With Oregon 450t you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly other compatible Garmin handheld users. Now you can send your favourite hike to your friend to enjoy or the location of a cache to find. Sharing data is easy. Just touch “send” to transfer your information to similar units.
Oregon 450t supports Opencaching.com GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Oregon stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manual entering of coordinates and soggy paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Show off photos of your excursions with Oregon’s picture viewer. Slim and lightweight, Oregon is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 450t has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows where you're heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. See changes in your elevation ahead of you and where you've been with enhanced track navigation. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 450t locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
Mapping options include the City Navigator maps for use in the car, Garmin GB Discoverer™ which provides Ordnance Survey mapping on your handheld, BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water and BirdsEye™ Select that lets you download customised sections of premium raster-based maps to your device and integrate them with your maps.
You've been busy exploring and now you want to store and analyse your activities. With a simple connection to your computer and to the Internet, you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your outdoor device using Garmin Connect™. This one-stop site offers an activity table and allows you to view your activities on a map using Google™ Earth. Explore other routes uploaded by millions of Garmin Connect users and share your experiences on Twitter® and Facebook®. Getting started is easy, so get out there, explore, and share.
I can't believe how weak this product is. Poor screen, slow operating system, expensive maps, heavy, poor battery life. It's sad but get a App for your smartphone instead.Published 22 months ago by Andrew Beswick
