- It fits nicely in your hand and yet has a weight that tells you it is a quality product- not a light, cheap plastic feel you get with modern sat-navs.
- It uses standard AA batteries and standard USB cables to power the unit- no manufacturers bespoke batteries and cables which would normally cost a fortune.
- I can download OpenStreetMap on the device and if I see problems on the map I can go straight onto the OpenStreetMap website, fix the problem (ANY map related problem) and re-download the map and have the problem fixed in minutes/hours. Many other manufacturers of sat-nav maps take over 12 months after a reported map incident to get a fix on a map- not with this Garmin and OpenStreetMap!!
- Using OpenStreetMap on the Garmin Oregon I can download national and regional walks, scenic routes, ski runs (even entire ski resorts!!) and so many other things onto the device- it's a navigators' heaven!
- I can set up different profiles to the type of navigation I want- so I can have a car navigation profile, a bicycle navigation profile, a skiing profile, a sailing profile and have each working in a different way customized to the type of navigation I actually want.
- The device is so customizable I can display any of the information I want quickly on the screen- brilliant!!
- The TFT screen is amazing and so clear! Also what is nice is that you can use the screen with gloves on....Read more ›
If you are used to touch screen units, you will find the Oregon straight forward to use. However, you need to be aware that the touch mechanism is very sensitive in the default set up and the screen orientation flips between landscape to portrait unless you lock it into your preferred format. I recommend doing this and also using the low sensitivity option for the touch mechanism. Also, lock the dashboard or you'll find that your preferred data field(s) will disappear from the screen when the unit is bumped around, which is what tends to happen when you are out walking. One final tip - buy and fit a screen protector. This is an inexpensive yet essential way of protecting the most important part of the system, which will get scratched or cracked during everyday use if you don't protect it.
Like other Garmins the Oregon comes with a clip and karabiner which fits on the back of the unit and allows you to attach the GPS to a rucksack. This is both simple and invaluable - why don't other GPS manufacturers do this?
The Oregon 650 has a built in camera, but in my opinion it isn't as good as the cameras you get on most mobile phones these days. The Oregon 600 is cheaper, does everything the 650 does but doesn't have a camera.Read more ›
Heres a tip to get openstreetmaps to work on your device, it had me foxed for a while. When you transfer the downloaded file to your sd card ( gmapsupp.img) make sure you create a Garmin folder on your sd card first and put the file there, or it won't work.
The main advance I have found is in the user interface which is far more up to date - it's not to iPhone standards but is a significant improvement on the previous model. I've had hours of fun configuring the unit to how I wanted it and finding out how all the features work.
I've now been out on my first geocaching outing with the new unit and it performed well, very much as I expected it to do. I like the ability to have a portrait or landscape display but I found the automatic changing between the two didn't suit me because it happened too often as I walked along - easy answer though, facilitated by the ability to program shortcuts: I've made the transition controlled by screen keys.
My reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is a bit of disappointment at the slowness of OS map updates on the screen and a (known) firmware snag that froze the screen when trying to view (or take) photos - having said that I am pretty satisfied with my 650 and I reckon we'll rub along together OK for a few years.
