The multi-award winning Oregon 600 is pretty much all the GPS you will ever need, this incredibly powerful device packs a host of features to make your adventures more enjoyable and easier to navigate. This bundle includes the Oregon 600 and the GB Discoverer full UK Ordnance Survey 1:50k Landranger digital mapping (worth £200.00). The heart of this brilliant device is Garmin’s High Sensitivity GPS receiver that is WAAS/EGNOS and GLONASS-enabled with HotFix satellite prediction, Oregon 600 locates your position quicker and more precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and steep sided valleys. The Oregon 600 can track both GPS and GLONASS satellites simultaneously. GLONASS is a system developed by the Russian Federation, and when linked to these satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to lock on to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS alone. When using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using standard GPS. With its sunlight readable, touchscreen display you can read the most detailed mapping in bright sunlight and the reflective display adapts so that even in dull conditions information appears bright and clear. You can even use the multi-touch screen with most gloves on and in portrait and landscape modes. As well as the included GB Discoverer mapping the Oregon also features a worldwide base map with relief shading for when you venture further afield. The Oregon features the usual Garmin full route navigation, Waypoint management and Tracklogs and features a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation that will show your bearing when you are stationary and not holding the device level. A barometric altimeter gives precise altitude readings and you can use it track weather patterns to help you plan your day and route accordingly. Make use of Garmin’s free route planning software, BaseCamp, to create your routes comfortably and easily on your desktop and then down load them to the Oregon. BaseCamp will even use the 1:50k mapping from your device to make route planning even easier.
