Handheld GPS with a touch screen

 

Garmin has provided a competitive handheld GPS device with the Oregon 300. It provides a full touch-screen experience in combination with a rugged casing and vital navigation tools. We would have preferred more detailed maps, but Garmin has provided...

Full touch screen, attractive and minimal design, user-friendly interface, expandable memory, preloaded base map

Provided maps aren’t detailed enough, display isn’t readable in direct sunlight, slow acquisition times, 3-D view isn’t available with preloaded maps

upgraded from 76CSx; I'm happy.
