Description of Garmin Oregon 600 GPS Navigation-Computer + Topo Map TransAlpine V4 PRO microSD Bundle
The rugged and waterproof GPS Oregon series - more features, more power and the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we've ever put on a Garmin handheld. With worldwide basemap + TransAlpine V4 PRO microSD.
From the moment you cradle the 600 in your hand, you're ready to enter into a bold new world of Garmin outdoor navigation. With high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking (more satellites mean faster fixes, even in challenging environments), preloaded worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, you don't just look at maps, you intuitively interact with them. Zoom in, pan out and rotate using multi-touch in any conditions and even with most gloves. The reflective display technology boosts touchscreen brightness so much that maps and displays are as vivid in full bright sunlight as they are in shade.
Touch and Go
Oregon 600 was purposely engineered for the outdoors. It features the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we've ever put on a Garmin handheld, strengthened for impact resistance but with multi-touch and dual orientation views that still accommodate gloved operation. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this mapping-oriented navigator.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 600 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation, which shows where you're heading even when you're standing still, and not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 600 locates your position quicker and more precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and steep sided valleys.
Double Your Power
Besides its outstanding performance of up to 16 hrs of battery time the new Oregon 600 features our outdoor optimised dual battery system. You'll have the option of using the internally rechargeable NiMH pack (not included) or traditional AA batteries in case there is no opportunity for charging - The NiMH pack charges automatically whenever the device is connected to external power.
Share activity data including waypoints, routes and tracks with friends and family via your smartphone and check for great Garmin Adventures nearby from wherever you are. Plus with Oregon 600 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible Garmin handheld devices.
Adding more maps to Oregon is easy. Load our Garmin GB Discoverer™ Ordnance Survey® 1:50k maps or choose our Birdseye™ Select 1:25k Ordnance Survey maps and hit the trail. Plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or load City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). Add satellite images to your maps with Birdseye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required).
You can even display and enter coordinates in British Grid format, the grid used on Ordnance Survey maps.
