The latest in outdoor GPS handsets, with lots of new features and improved accuracy.
The Garmin Oregon 600
uses the latest software and GPS technology to keep you on track and updated in any conditions, with an outdoor-perfected screen for great readability in bright sun or gloomy shade.
Also bundled with the handset is GB Discoverer 1:50K OS Mapping for the whole of Great Britain (worth £200 when sold separately) - all of GB's OS Landranger maps on a micro SD card* in one portable unit, just plug the card in and you're ready to go!
Combining the GPS and GLONASS satellite network gives access to up to 24 extra satellites and means locking on is more accurate and approximately 20% faster, while Hotfix® satellite prediction maintains GPS location even in heavy cover or deep valleys. The 3-axis compass has automatic tilt adjustment that ensures an accurate bearing whether you're moving, resting, or holding the unit at an angle. A barometric altimeter logs your altitude and can be used over time to build up a picture of changing weather conditions.
The ability to pinch-zoom and tilt between portrait and landscape views makes it easy to get your bearings quickly, and the screen is very responsive even when wearing most types of gloves. Full track view is a new feature that allows you to see your entire elevation view and quickly move to any point, while future plot uses mapping data to tell you what to expect ahead. Free BaseCamp™ software can be downloaded from Garmin and allows you to view and organise your maps, waypoints, routes and tracks in 2D or 3D before uploading to the unit for use on the go.
The Oregon 600 is also Bluetooth compatible which enables smartphone connectivity via the BaseCamp mobile app, so you can share your adventures online as you travel. Large files like custom maps and routes can also be transferred to other Oregon 600 series units, and the ANT+ wireless capability means you can connect with optional extras like heart rate or temperature sensors to add an extra level of detail to your experience. Large numbers of geocaching GPX files can be downloaded straight to the unit for paperless geocaching, with the unit displaying location, terrain and difficulty as well as hints and tips where available. Caches can be easily filtered to make searching as simple as possible.
For full details on the Oregon 600 GPS and to see how it compares to the other 600 Series units, check out our New Oregon GPS Guide.
* mapping is supplied on a micro SD card within a standard-size SD card converter (so you can plug it into your computer). To fit it into the GPS simply slide the micro SD out of the converter and into the GPS unit.

difficult to use software, confusing and hard to read interface, and buggy hardware. they are trying to do too much in one unit and failing abysmally. technical support no use either ... would give it zero stars if I could.
Garmin losing the plot with handhelds, 04 July 2015
By Zteve63 (Burton on Trent)
Upgraded from the 300 got so say the worse decision i've made with tech
The screen is an improvement over the 300 however The 600 seems to be seriously underpowered and unable to use it to its full potential
Rendering of maps is very slow
The whole interface is slow, jumpy, and less than intuitive
The tech in this kind of device now seems to be outdated compared to the latest generation of smart phones
Made the decision to offload it on eBay after only 3 months use and to explore the option of fitting my iPhone with a rugged battery case and using the routebuddy atlas app
Imo Garmin is losing the plot with hand held GPS devices

I bought one of these units when they first came out. I use good quality rechargeable batteries and find the battery life to be okay. By far the best garmin gps I have used. I use it for walking and cycling.

Picks up satellites quite quickly. Robust design but screen resolution not as good as iPhone. Product didn't come with batteries. Better with 1.25000 scale maps. iPhone is now a major threat but appreciate Garmin will have longer battery life when out in the field. Used against iPhone and found iPhone with OS app easier to use. Would suggest Garmin need to improve design before being left behind

I've used this twice so far on the fells in the Lake District, an easy walk up Barrow in Coledale and then up Skiddaw on a cold February day, I can say that I've had no problems with the battery, yes it drained quickly on Skiddaw but when there's snow on the ground and a -15 wind chill most batteries don't last long in such cold temps, I had no problems with it on my other walk in a less cold temp. I bought this over a GPS Map 62s as scrolling around maps is much quicker and allot easier to read due to a larger screen. My only niggle is you have to remember to lock the screen as its very sensitive but overall I've been impressed by this device :)
