Garmin Oregon 550t -

If you're looking for the perfect multipurpose tool for your outdoor adventure, all you need is a rugged Oregon 550 or 550t GPS navigator, Garmin's first outdoor navigators to include built-in cameras, along with a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass that allows the unit to report an accurate heading even when not held in a level position. Built-in Camera: The 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera has 4x digital zoom and automatically geotags each photo with the location where it was taken, allowing you to mark, remember and navigate back to the exact spot in the future. When you connect an Oregon 550 or 550t to a computer via USB and log on to, it will detect any photos. The myGarmin site makes it simple to select, upload and store photos on Picasa™, a popular online photo sharing community for friends and families around the world. Detailed Topo Maps: A built-in DEM (digital elevation model) basemap on the Oregon 550 supports terrain shading and route elevation profiles to help you estimate terrain difficulty. And the Oregon 550t comes preloaded with detailed topographic maps and land elevation contours throughout the U.S. Coverage includes major trails, urban and rural roads, interstates, highways, coastlines, rivers and lakes as well as national, state and local parks, forests and wilderness areas. In addition, you can search for points of interest by name or proximity to your location. Plus, it contains descriptive details for features typically found on topographic maps, such as terrain contours, topo elevations, summits and geographical points. The Oregon 550 and 550t provide improved sunlight-readable touchscreen displays, and the high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix™ satellite prediction helps locate your position quickly and precisely while maintaining its signal even in heavy cover and deep canyons.

Garmin Oregon 550t Reviews:


Good gps. A bit pricey, but loaded

Worked nicely. Quickly got sats after initial boot. Had good battery life - performed better than expected. Used two sets of batteries over two full days (10 hrs) of hiking PLUS intermitten use over 4 days of canoeing. Only negative is that when you use the supplied lanyard, the unit is oriented backwards!? Need to take it off lanyard to use it - simply mindnumbing that it is configured like that.

For the Outdoorsman

I have used the Garmin since purchase numerous times as a hunting and fishing navigator in conjuction with Montana hunting maps. It is more than satisfactory. Note: the screen is subject to scratching and alkaline batteries do not last very long.

I love it, but...

I would have given 5 stars if it weren't for the in store photo that was saved on my GPS unit. The product works great, but I think I was sold a used/floor model, and not a new unit.

This was an upgrade for me from an old etrex. Picks up signal much better than old unit, especially in heavy timber. The topo map very helpful. Liked touch screen.
