NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Garmin. It is replaced by the Oregon 450 (click here), with a three-axis electronic compass and upgraded software.
The Garmin Oregon 300 puts the great outdoors at your fingertips. This next-generation handheld features a rugged, touchscreen along with a built-in basemap with shaded relief, a high-sensitivity receiver, barometric altimeter, electronic compass, microSD card slot, picture viewer and more. Even exchange tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches wirelessly between similar units.
Touch and Go
Oregon 300 leads the way with a tough, 3-inch diagonal, sunlight-readable, color, touchscreen display. Its easy-to-use interface means you'll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 300 is built to withstand the elements. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator.
Oregon 300 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.
With Oregon 300 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other Oregon and Colorado 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.
Oregon 300 supports Geocaching.com GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. No more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit 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.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 300 has a built-in electronic compass that provides bearing information even while you're standing still, and its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use the altimeter to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
Keep Your Fix
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, Oregon 300 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Oregon to help you find your way when you need it the most.
Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards for all your outdoor activities on land or water (click here for help selecting a map). Just insert a MapSource card with detailed street maps, and Oregon 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 Vision, you'll get everything you need for a great day on the water including depth contours, navaids and harbors. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.
