Touch and Go
Oregon 600 has reflective display technology for the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we’ve ever made. The screen is strengthened for impact resistance, with multi-touch and dual orientation views that accommodate gloved operation.
Double Your Power
Oregon 600 features our state-of-the-art dual battery system. Use the optional rechargeable NiMH pack (not included) or traditional AA batteries — NiMH pack charges when the device is connected to external power.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 600 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation to show where you're heading even when standing still, or not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS- and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 600 locates your position quickly and precisely, and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Oregon 600 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible Garmin handheld devices. Plus, you can share large files too like photos, Garmin Adventures and Custom Maps. Just touch “send” to transfer your information.
Adding more maps to Oregon is easy. Load TOPO Australia & New Zealand maps and hit the trail; plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water; or load City Navigator® map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. Add satellite images to your maps with BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required). Oregon 600 is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
Load All the Geocaches
No more picking, choosing and planning, just download them all. Oregon 600 can hold up to 4 million. Download every cache on OpenCaching.com. Load caches using your favourite program or website that supports GGZ files. All your paperless geocaching features will be there for every cache. Read full descriptions, hints and logs. View cache photos. Filter caches by size, terrain, difficulty and type. Connect to chirp-enabled caches. Record your logs in the field. Do it all.
Plan Your Next Trip
Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp™, software that lets you view and organise maps, waypoints, routes and tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
Reflective display technology uses external light, such as sunlight, in combination with the device’s LED backlight to increase brightness and viewing. Plus, you conserve power by not having to turn the backlight up.
View maps and data in portrait or landscape mode. Landscape mode is great for typing and road navigation.
Advanced Elevation Plot
Full Track view lets you see the entire elevation plot and quickly move your zoomed view to any place on the plot. Future Plot uses your mapping data to show what to expect ahead.
Improved Trip Computer
Get 33 percent more data on screen at once with new layout options. Add multiple pages of data fields, each customisable to 1 of 4 layouts: 2 large, 1 large and 4 small, 6 small or 8 small.
Activity Tracking (Calendar)
Track your accumulated activities, waypoints and geocaches; tracks on the day you do them.
Advanced Waypoint Management
All data is displayed and editable on 1 screen. Delete 1 or multiple waypoints at a time from the Waypoint Manager menu.
Wireless Capable: Bluetooth® and ANT
Now you can wirelessly transfer large files such as photos, geocaches, adventures, routes and Custom Maps between Oregon 600-series devices (or with Garmin Basecamp Mobile). Plus, new technology allows your routes, waypoints and tracks to transfer up to 50 times faster. Oregon is also ANT+ wireless compatible for heart rate, cadence, chirp™ and tempe™ sensors.
