"Buying a GPS"

I'm looking at buying my first GPS. I have been leaning towards the Garmin Oregon 450, or 450T. I would appreciate any feedback on the Oregon and whether its better to save the money on the 450 or if anyone favors a different GPS all together. Any feedback would be great.

I have the 450t. I don't know how useful the topo maps are, but they're there. I really like it from a usability standpoint. Very simple and intuitive to use. I got mine on a great sale via REI last year. I would buy again if given the option. The only other thing I'd consider is the minimalist GPS Garmin sells, the Foretrex. If you're just marking waypoints and need coordinates to plot on a map (my primary use as I do a lot of compass navigation alongside my gps) it's all you need. But can't go wrong with the Oregon IMO.

I'm really happy with my Bushnell GPS locator. It's super simple to use and works perfectly. Solid build and affordable.

I just bought a 450. Only had it 4 days, but like it already. Just trying to figure out which mapping software to get. I got it at cabelas for $319 plus it had a $50 mail in rebate. Deal good until July 4th.


The voices in my head may not be real, but they have
some good ideas!
