[CES 2013] If you’re a fan of camping or exploring and you would like to cut down on the amount of devices you carry with you, you’re in luck. Garmin has just announced the launch of its new Oregon (600/600t and 650/650t) GPS devices. More than just a GPS, the Oregon features a built-in 8MP autofocus camera for you to capture memories, landmarks, or interesting events that occur on your trips. The Garmin Oregon also has a multi-touch display that can work with most gloves, and reflective display technology which makes your maps visible regardless of whether you’re standing in bright sunlight or under the shade.
And as expected, the Oregon features GPS + GLONASS, pre-loaded TOPO US 100K maps, worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor. Users can also share their waypoints, routes, tracks with the BaseCamp software, and to other Oregon 600-series units as well. The new Garmin Oregon units are expected to be available in Q1 2013 and will have a suggested retail price of $399.99 (600), $479.99 (600t), $479.99 (650) $549.99 (650t).Related articles:
