The new rugged and waterproof GPS Oregon series is packed with more features, more power and the most brilliant, multi-touch display ever put on a Garmin handheld.
With GPS and GLONASS support, built-in 3-axis compass, barometric altimeter, and up to 16 hours battery life you can safely navigate to wherever you want to go.
Oregon will collect¹ your activity data including waypoints, tracks, and geocaches wherever you are, so can simply organise this content via BaseCamp - Garmin's free planning tool, and share your Garmin Adventure with friends and family on email, social media, or via your blog or forums.
Oregon 600 has a 3-inch sunlight-readable, glove-friendly touchscreen and dual orientation views that automatically switch between landscape and portrait. The reflective display technology uses external light, like sunlight, in combination with the unit's LED backlight to increase brightness and view-ability.
With a faster processor and responsive screen, maps can easily be zoomed, panned and rotated using multi-touch. It's also rugged and waterproof to withstand the elements.
Oregon 600 has top-of-the-range features suitable or any outdoor adventure and a user-customizable quick access button for direct access to chosen functions.
The built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated compass shows your heading even when you're standing still, without holding it level. The 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.
ANT and Bluetooth technology enables you to wirelessly share routes, tracks, waypoints and geocaches between units.
Oregon 600 has a microSD™ card slot for optional mapping and data storage. 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. Oregon 600 is also compatible with Custom Maps which transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
Oregon 600 takes 2 traditional AA batteries but for extended activities, a rechargeable NiMH battery pack is also available as an optional extra.
The Oregon 600 is designed to work with Garmin's free planning and sharing software, making your adventure even better.
Use Garmin's free online planning tool, BaseCamp at http://www.garmin.com/uk/maps/trip-planning-software/basecamp to prepare for your next trip. You can view maps, plan routes, and mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and then transfer them to your device.
When your adventure is done, go to Garmin Adventures at http://adventures.garmin.com/en-US/ to swap your stories with a community of fellow explorers, brag to your buddies about your travels, or let friends and family find your favourite spots.
