Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Receiver
The Garmin Oregon 450 Features a Worldwide Basemap:

The Oregon 450 comes with a built-in worldwide basemap with shaded contours. Simply touch the color screen to navigate. Its digital elevation maps show you shaded contours at higher zoom levels, giving you a big picture of the surrounding terrain. But that's just the beginning...

You can conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards for all your outdoor activities on land or water (please see the Garmin website for compatible maps). Just insert a MapSource card with detailed street maps, and the Oregon 450 provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. Add select topographic maps to take advantage of Oregon’s 3-D map view which gives you a better perspective of your elevation. With BlueChart g2, you’ll get everything you need for a great day on the water including depth contours, navaids and harbors. And the LakeMaster series of professional lake fishing maps give you unmatched mapping for all your fishing adventures. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.

You can also create Custom Maps using the Google Earth application and any .jpeg map image file.
The Garmin Oregon 450 and MyTopo Terrain Navigator:
The Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Receiver is fully compatible with the state-of-the-art MyTopo Terrain Navigator and Terrain Navigator Pro topographic map software. You can now transfer the beautiful Terrain Navigator Pro raster maps to the Oregon 450, as well as waypoints, tracks, and routes.

The Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Receiver Features a Sunlight-readable Touchscreen Interface:

The Garmin Oregon 450 leads the way with a tough, 3-inch diagonal, sunlight-readable, color, touchscreen display that offers crystal clear enhanced colors and high-resolution images. Its easy-to-use interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. With user-selectable dashboards, you can customize the appearance of your display. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 450 is built to withstand the elements. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator.

Paperless Geocaching and Wireless Data Sharing:

The Garmin Oregon 450 handheld GPS receiver supports GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your device. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Oregon stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs. Simply upload the GPX file to your Oregon 450 and start hunting for caches. Show off photos of your excursions with Oregon’s picture viewer. Slim and lightweight, Oregon is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits.

With the Garmin Oregon 450 GPS you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Oregon, Colorado and Dakota users. Now you can send your favorite hike to your friend to enjoy or the location of a cache to find. Sharing data is easy. Just touch “send” to transfer your information to similar units.

3-axis Electronic Compass and a Barometric Altimeter:

The Garmin Oregon 450 handheld GPS has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. Its 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. See changes in your elevation ahead of you and where you've been with enhanced track navigation. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, the Garmin Oregon 450 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.

Store and Analyze Your Activities with Garmin Connect:

With a simple connection to your computer and to the Internet, you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your outdoor device using Garmin Connect. This one-stop site offers an activity table and allows you to view your activities on a map using Google Earth.
