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.

I had seen my geocaching friends experiment with various GPS receivers in the quest for decent mapping. The Oregon became the clear favourite and has left the rest far behind. It therefore became the obvious choice for me.

I selected the 450T rather than the 550T because I have no interest in the micro-camera the 550T contains, but the most important features: maps and usability are identical on both. I opted for the 450T rather than 450 simply because I used my original GPS receiver without maps in some areas and it is a little harder to use without visual cues. I know the Topographical map is basic, but it is better than nothing for the rest of Europe and is inexpensive.

The rugged feel of the Oregon and its shape are a great fit in the hand and I have no problem operating it single handed, controlling the touch screen with my thumb. This was a slight concern for me prior to purchase - I did not want to progress to a two-handed device. My previous GPS receivers were the original eTrex Vista (purchased 1999) and eTrex Vista HCx (purchased 2007), both of which could be operated easily in my right hand. The Oregon being completely symmetrical with touch screen should perform equally well for left and right handed users.

I have added 1:50K Ordnance Survey maps on a microSD card. This addition is what makes this GPS receiver utterly compelling. You'll still take your paper map with you into unfamiliar places, but its relegated to backup - no need to wrestle with a map in the wind and rain using two hands when you now have it in the palm of one hand, able to pan and zoom and your position and track are clearly marked on it. It is so much more user-friendly than a paper map. The 1:50K is fine for most uses, though loses clarity when zoomed in too far.

I researched GPS units a lot before deciding to buy "the best" unit - a Garmin Oregon 450t with full UK OS mapping.
The first unit I had repeatedly froze and after a lot of communication with the vendor and Garmin Europe, and making a software update on lineI exchanged it for a new unit.
The second unit also required a software update but seemed at first to work fine although it took a long time to figure out how to use it as the documentation supplied - a Quickstart guide - is useless and the online manual leaves a lot to be desired. After a few walks I realized that the distance recording on the odometer varied significanly from the track record. After more communication with Garmin and their recommendation to update to the 3.52 beta software version they conceded that they didn't have a fix for the distance discrepancies. I also found the unit 'freezing' as the first unit had, even with the beta software.
Having read the reviews of the alternatives, they all seem to have some technical problems. I remain to be convinced that the technology is yet sufficiently robust or stable to command several hundred pounds of my money. I will stick to map and compass, I'll miss having the data profiles of walks and the records and the ability to pinpoint exactly where I am, but if you can't rely on the data it's all rather pointless.

The GPS was delivered promptly and safely. I really like the GPS. It is not too heavy but still feels that it is capable of with-standing tough conditions. Running on normal (cheap) batteries does not work, they are depleted in no time. But with good NiMH batteries, the GPS can run quite many hours.
The only thing I did not like was the "Topographical Maps of Europe", that are built into the device on delivery. It gives an over-view of Europe but when it comes to actually using them for navigation, I think they are simply to non-detailed. But the extra price for the map was very low, so from the economic point of view they are kind of "worth it".

Iwas a little wary before ordering this product because of some reviews saying the screen is unreadable in sunlight but I am glad I bought it. I live in southern spain so the sun here is a little brighter than in the UK but I have absolutely no trouble at all reading the screen in direct sunlight, even with the 'shading' feature switched ON.excellent product, easy to use menu's and I especially like the fact that you can customize what information you want to view and how.
A little greedy on batteries but then again so was my old e-trex summit, I usually get 8-9 hours out of NiMH rechargeables.

Verified Purchase
This is my first "walking" GPS that shows maps. Truly a revelation! The touch screen is very easy to use but does collect fingerprints. My only niggle is that you have to open the whole unit to insert the card. Otherwise highly recommended.

We are very happy with the unit and already have used it on an all day trek and bike ride (we also bought the bike mount). The map included is OK but you will need to purchase one of the other garmin maps to do something more serious than a light walk. You only get turn by turn directions with the other maps anyway if you want to use it on your bike, etc. All in all a very pleasing purchase.

Garmin Oregon 450T GPS Unit - Topographical Maps of Europe
This is a great improvement on the e-Trex Vista HCx that I had before. European base maps are not bad but it really needs the OS 1:50K mapping to make it really useful for UK walkers and cyclists.
