Garmin Oregon 400t


There are plenty of good reasons that GPS manufacturers have sold tens of millions of personal navigation devices: Many of us are directionally challenged, and guys like me love our gadgets but hate to stop to ask for directions. Generally, If you're...

Sensitive receiver. Quick satellite acquisition. Multiple profiles for various outdoor activities. Highly configurable. IPX7-rated waterproof. Integrated with, a Web site that tracks geocaches.

Expensive. Main Menu has too many choices.

Albeit pricey, this handheld touch-screen GPS device makes an excellent hiking companionand a fun gadget for high-tech treasure hunting.

Garmin Oregon 400t GPS receiver - Pocket-lint


So you fancy a spot of Geocaching, but at the same time don't want to actually do any real thinking about it? Garmin hopes it has just the answer with

Plenty of features, geocaching app that lets you send details straight from site

Screen is too dim in bright conditions

Okay, so it costs £400 which might put some off the Garmin Oregon 400t, however it’s so packed with features that we can't see why you wouldn't want this if you are heading off into the wilds, be it Berkshire or remotest Africa.

Garmin Oregon 400c


Sail the seven seas without getting lost.

Coastal maps, microSD slot, rugged casing, wireless sharing function

Suitable only for a small audience, Garmin doesn't provide similarly priced options for land-based recreation

The Oregon 400c is a reasonably priced option if you need detailed coastal maps. The inclusion of a microSD slot provides adequate room for expansion.
