Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS - One of The Best
Both 450 and 450t come with a worldwide shaded relief basemap, but 450t adds a preloaded 100K topographic maps for the U.S. including 3D elevation perspective. They weigh 6.8 ounces, and can last up to 16 hours on two AA batteries. They feature a GPS receiver with HotFix which kinda mimics A-GPS technology. They come with 850 MB of internal memory and a microSD card slot for photos and other optional map data.
You’ve still got the photo navigation and the 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass which is a must if you’re lost in the wilderness. Of course Garmin Oregon 450 and 450t does feature a barometric altimeter, the necessary software for easier geocaching, and wireless exchange of tracks, waypoints, routes and geocaches.
What’s different from the 5xx series? These don’t come with a digital camera.

Garmin Oregon 450t
These overpriced GPS Units are not Super when compared to the current level of Similar Technologies of cell phones, etc. I would never rate any of the hand-held GPS units as Excellent because the Ease-of-Use or User-Experience with them is still far behind the these modern times in this current electronic age.
Great Screen Resolution compared to others hand held GPS units.
Good Visibility of the Screen.
Touch Screen is Reasonably Good.
The design & size of the unit will fit nicely in your hand.
Importing (jpg) Maps is VERY DIFFICULT.
You need to purchase additional Software to import the maps.
The Accuracy of the GPS unit is always around 15-30 feet. Not so Great.
(My Nuvi 760 Car GPS Unit is significantly more accurate.)
Touch Screen sensitivity is not current for current touch screen technology.
This unit is Too Expensive for the services it provides.
The US Topo Maps pails to the Western States more detailed Topo Maps.
The Base Map included is really of little value... plan on having to by Topo Maps.
I am really surprised at the demand there is for this type of GPS toy and what a Lack of Technology there is in these units for the price you pay.
If you are a Scout Master responsible for not getting boys lost on a high adventure outing, this type of devise is a necessity.
If you are an electronic buff, this is a trinket you may want to wait for newer versions in the next year or two.
I suspect in the near future, your phone will provide all these GPS services for you with significantly greater User-Interface-Experience whether or not you are near a Cell Tower.Read full review

The Garmin 450 is perfect for what I use it in the woods for. I had the Garmin Dakota which was a nice unit but the Oregon has a bigger screen and easier to use when marking way points. Either of them are great but I do love my Garmin handheld GPS units.
