Garmin Oregon 400t GPS receiver - Pocket-lint

 

If you aren't too worried about the low light screen this is worth checking out, but it's what stops it from getting a 9/10

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.
