Considering a Garmin Oregon 450
After a good while pondering over getting a GPS, I'm finally seriously considering taking the plunge. The problem is, I know so little about them.
What I want from a system is 3 things:
Looking online, I'm drawn to the Garmin Oregon 450, which I've seen online for £350, including full UK OS mapping (1:50000 scale). Would this do what I want? Is there something else that would do what I want better, or for less?
Sat Map Active 10+ comes with full GB 1:50k. The active 10+ comes with a one year subscription to their online mapping/route software where you can create and share routes. Current prices on Amazon is sub £300.
Personally I use it with Memory Map software to create routes and download to the unit, however I have created a route on the unit itself and it was a breeze.
Definitely worth considering - I was looking at various units for over a year before buying the Sat Map and I am very pleased with the unit.
