Oregon 550t combines rugged outdoor touchscreen navigation with a digital camera and preloaded Europe recreation maps. It is perfect for all activities, in any climate, on any terrain, yet simple enough for beginners to master.
Take Pictures and Save Locations
Oregon 550t's 3.2 megapixel autofocus digital camera with 4x digital zoom automatically geotags each photo with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to mark, remember and navigate back to that exact spot in the future. You can take and view landscape or portrait pictures, and 850 MB of internal memory offers ample storage.

Touch and Go
Oregon 550t has a tough, 7.62cm (3in) diagonal, sunlight-readable, colour touchscreen display with a simple-to-use menu system. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 550t is built to withstand the elements.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 550t 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.
With high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, Oregon 550t locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and urban landscapes.
Explore Backcountry in 3-D
Oregon 550t's preloaded Europe Recreation Map, 3-D map view and built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief give you all the tools for serious climbing or hiking. Map detail is simple and easy to read, and includes terrain contours at 100m (328ft) intervals, land use information, rivers, lakes and street-level detail for 29 countries across Europe. The European preloaded map corresponds to an approximate detail of a 1:100,000 scale map. And, 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.
Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards for all your outdoor activities, whether you are walking, driving or on the water.
On the trail a Garmin GB Discoverer microSD card gives detailed topographic and Ordnance Survey map detail, showing terrain contours, summits, trails and more. On the road you can use Garmin GB Discoverer for Great Britain or City Navigator mapping for other countries, giving you detailed street maps and turn-by-turn directions to your destination.
