Get Your Bearings
Oregon 450 has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your 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 can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. See changes in your elevation ahead of you and where you've been with enhanced track navigation. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 450 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Oregon 450 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.
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).
Oregon 450 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.
