Garmin Oregon 450 Handheld GPS Navigator

 

I'm really glad I spent the money for this GPS. It's easy to use and small enough to fit in a pocket.

This is my 4th GPS and by far my favorite. It has features that make geocaching much more fun and the reaction speed is great

The backlight isn't the best, but I haven't had any real problems with seeing the screen

Love the GPS, but also must comment on quick delivery by PCNation. Received the GPS in time for my trip and was not charged extra shipping fee.
