Touch and Go

Oregon 550t makes rugged navigation effortless with a tough, 3" (7.62 cm) diagonal, sunlight-readable, color touchscreen display. The interface is easy to use, so you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 550t is built to withstand the elements; bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator.

Explore the Terrain

Oregon 550t comes with built-in U.S. topographic data for the continental U.S. and a worldwide basemap with shaded relief — all the tools for serious climbing or hiking. Map detail includes national, state and local parks and forests, along with terrain contours, elevation information, trails, rivers, lakes and points of interest.

Get Your Bearings

Oregon 550t has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows where you're heading even when you’re standing still, without 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-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 550t locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.

Share Wirelessly

With Oregon 550t you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Oregon, Colorado® and Dakota­® devices. Send your favorite hike to your friend to enjoy or the location of a cache to find. Just touch “send” to transfer your information.

Add Maps

Adding more maps to Oregon is easy. Load TOPO U.S. 24K 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 (see maps tab for compatible maps). Add satellite images to your maps with BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required).

Find Fun

Oregon 550t supports OpenCaching.com GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Oregon stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Show off photos of your excursions with Oregon’s picture viewer. Slim and lightweight, Oregon is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits.

Plan Your Next Trip

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.
