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 geocaching.com, 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.

Will this help you find that cache?

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.

Sitting at the top of Garmin's handheld GPS range, the Oregon 400c doesn't have all the frills of Magellan's Triton 2000 but it still has a host of fe...

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.

In some ways the Oregon 400t is massively impressive. The interface isn't perfect, but the touch screen and icon-based menu are far better than other GPS units we've used. We do have reservations over the longterm durability of the screen, however only...
