The new rugged and waterproof GPS Oregon series – more features, more power and the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we’ve ever put on a Garmin handheld.

From the moment you cradle the 600 in your hand, you’re ready to enter into a bold new world of Garmin outdoor navigation. With high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking (more satellites mean faster fixes, even in challenging environments), preloaded worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, you don’t just look at maps, you intuitively interact with them. Zoom in, pan out and rotate using multi-touch in any conditions and even with most gloves. The reflective display technology boosts touchscreen brightness so much that maps and displays are as vivid in full bright sunlight as they are in shade.




Touch and Go

Oregon 600 was purposely engineered for the outdoors. It features the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we’ve ever put on a Garmin handheld, strengthened for impact resistance but with multi-touch and dual orientation views that still accommodate gloved operation. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this mapping-oriented navigator.

Get Your Bearings

Get Your Bearings

Oregon 600 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation, which shows where you're heading even when you’re standing still, and not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 600 locates your position quicker and more precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and steep sided valleys.


Double Your Power

Besides its outstanding performance of up to 16 hrs of battery time the new Oregon 600 features our outdoor optimised dual battery system. You’ll have the option of using the internally rechargeable NiMH pack (not included) or traditional AA batteries in case there is no opportunity for charging — The NiMH pack charges automatically whenever the device is connected to external power.

Share Wirelessly

Now you can wirelessly transfer large files such as photos, geocaches, routes and Custom Maps between Oregon 600-series devices. Plus, new technology allows your routes, waypoints and tracks to transfer up to 50 times faster. Sync your data such as waypoints, geocaches, tracks and images to the Garmin Cloud, and access from anywhere via your smartphone and BaseCamp mobile app. Oregon is also ANT+ wireless compatible with heart rate, chirp and tempe sensors.
