I've been using an old Garmin eTrex GPS for years. The Garmin Oregon 600 is a massive step forward from the eTrex. The technological leap is the equivalent of moving straight from a Nokia 5110 mobile phone to an iPhone 5 - the additional functionality, the readability of the screen and the ease of use are initially a bit overwhelming. Unfortunately there's a bit of a learning curve too.

Firstly, it has a touch-screen, and its in colour. Secondly, it connects easily to my PC, using standard (mini) USB connector. Thirdly, you can download maps, and this alone makes a massive difference to the usability. Be aware however that maps cost money - you may like to consider buying the version of this GPS that has Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 maps preinstalled, if it is available. I'll come back to maps in a minute.

For folks that haven't used a GPS before, its important to note that the positioning offered by a device like this is far more accurate than a mobile phone. I'm not sure why this is, but I assume it is tracking more satellites than a mobile phone can manage.

Almost all the functionality comes from little app icons. There are four on the home screen and you can swipe up from the bottom to see more. For Geocachers, you can enter coordinates easily (choose the "Where to" icon, and then "Coordinates", and enter the coordinates in decimal format (hddd mm.mmm) - you can reconfigure the device to use hddd.ddddd or hddd mm ss.s formats if your geocaches use those formats, or you can use the Ordnance Survey National Grid format. There's built-in support for Opencaching geocaches, but there aren't any of those near where I live.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: One Size 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.

Colour Name: BlackSize Name: One Size Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have to say I'm not a heavy user as per many of the people here who are probably walkers, orienteers e.t.c. and are probably far more conversant with maps and pushing this GPS to its limits than myself ...... a bit of a newbie to this.
This is only my second GPS and my other I have only had 3 months before getting this - I use a Dakota 10 which I go geocaching with and also use it on my mountain bike. This is a huge step up from the Dakota 10 though, and is a really nice bit of kit.
First off the Oregon 600 is larger than the D10 and therefore the screen is too it really feels like a quality unit and has great styling. The screen itself is set flush on the unit so no finger bump, for example the D10 has a lip at the edge of the screen so when using the touch functions especially when resizing or moving a map your finger keeps banging it and so it kind of limits what you are trying to do at times - but then again the lip can offer a little screen protection if you inadvertently lie it down on a rough surface. The Oregon 600 screen itself is supremely responsive when moving and when using touch and the menus are so much better laid out than on the Dakota. It's a whole lot easier to read in the sunlight than my D10 too. Also the screen will adjust accordingly to how you are holding the unit i.e. hold it sideways and the display will change to landscape.
It uses two AA batteries and when I've been using it (usually for around 2 hours without powering off) I've never had to use my backups, I tend to use re-chargeable batteries and usually recharge them after each trip so I can't say how long the unit runs until they die, I guess that would depend on the amount of time you used the backlight though.
