This isn't comprehensive but I wanted to say how the 600 delivers what my Oregon 450 failed.

When I bought the 450 a few years ago I thought this was going to be my perfect device but it let me down in a number of ways.

The 450 screen looked brilliant indoors. The first time I took it out on an overcast day I could have cried. I could hardly see the screen. In direct sunlight, at certain angles, it looked as clear as paper but at other angles it was dim. I could live with this hiking but it was unusable cycling since you can't really adjust your viewing angle on the fly. The 600 screen is way superior in all respects.

The 450 was touch screen but it was not very sensitive. To scroll lists or the map I would often resort to using my fingernail rather than my finger pad. The 600 is super sensitive (sensitivity is adjustable). No repeated attempts to jab a menu option, pan the map etc. The downside is that I need to be strict about locking the display when not using it.

Most of the time I use my GPS with the map displayed. On the 450 flipping to other functions then back to the map was laborious, involving backing out of the map screen, digging down through other menus, then back up again, then back into the map screen. Now with the 600 you tap the bars at the bottom right of the map screen to access context functions including toggling maps. You can add a dashboard with configurable fields at the top of the display that easily retracts. Access to track controls are simple. The physical buttons can be mapped to functions or combinations of functions (a kind of macro) which is extremely powerful.

On the 450, when presented with a list of maps, each item was large and required a lot of scrolling.

Style Name: Standard Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a map and compass kind of guy who learnt the basics in the army, but with the advent of technology it is impossible not to get drawn in. If truth be known I love gadgets.

I have been using this little device for a number of weeks now, trying to eke out its good points and find the shortcomings. Now that the weather has turned for the better I have been dragging out the children for a bit of intensive Geocaching and playing catch up.

I have been running it in comparison with a iPhone 5S and a Garmin eTrex 30.
Ok, the iPhone has an acceptable function as a GPS but it just does not warrant being spoken of in the same breath or being compared in accuracy so that's the last time I will mention it.

The eTrex is all buttons whereas the Oregon 600 is a touch screen. While I know my way around the eTrex the usability of the the touch screen is so much better, so much more functional and is easier to use. This is probably down to the fact that my last 6 or 7 mobile phones have been touch screens. It is what i have become used to.

The Oregon is also quite a bit bigger in the hand and feels bulkier but not too big that it becomes a burden. The menu system is generally Ok when flicking between screen or setting the device up but Garmin needs to refine this a little more and make the breakdown of the menus more intuitive.
Sometimes what you expect should be there is hidden in another sub-menu. They could learn a little from Apple or Samsung.

I have now been able to use the device in bright sunlight! The screen handles it fairly well but don't expect Retina or Super Amoled screen clarity, it is more `second generation' colour screen technology. While the screen is bright, really bright sunlight washes it out, so a bit of shade helps.

A couple of years ago, I bought a Garmin Oregon 450. After many years using Garmin's traditional handhelds, they were starting to feel a bit old-fashioned next to their range of touchscreen nuvi car satnavs, and the 450 was one of their first forays into the touchscreen market for hiking satnavs.

The 450 was ... ok. It worked acceptably, but I think it is quite significant that I didn't feel able to sell my old GPSMap 60CSx. The 450 had the feel of a first generation product - a bit slow and clunky. The worst features were the touchscreen and the display - the display was basically unreadable in bright sunlight, and the resistive touchscreen felt primitive and unresponsive for anyone used to using a modern smartphone.

But now Garmin have launched the 600 series, and I am very pleased to find that they have got it right this time. First off, the touchscreen is capacitive and hugely responsive - taps, swipes and pinches all work the way they should, and the difference in usability over the 450 is huge. They have also used a transflective screen, which works best in bright sunlight - in dim light, you will need the backlight, but outdoors it is clear and legible.

These two changes alone are enough to justify the upgrade, but there's more. The receiver can now also pick up signals from the Russian GLONASS satellites, making it more accurate and better at holding a signal lock. The user interface is beautifully customisable - you can set it up just how you like it. Even the calculator has got its scientific mode back, which occasionally came in useful for geocaching. The device also feels usefully a bit less chunky and Fisher-Price-like, while still feeling very solid and robust, and the bezel around the screen is a lot thinner, which makes it easier to use.
