Find Fun
Oregon 300 supports GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. No more manually entering coordinates and paper print-out! Simply upload the GPS 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.

Keep Your Fix
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix™ satellite prediction, Oregon 300 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees you can count on Oregon to help you find your way when you need it the most. HotFix™ decreases satellite acquisition times by recording ephemeris data, then predicting satellite location for the areas and times recorded for up to three days.

Get Your Bearings
Oregon 300 has a built-in electronic compass that provides bearing information even while you're standing still, and its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use the altimeter to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Add Maps
Conveniently plug in optional preloaded microSD cards for all your outdoor activities on land or water. With the detailed Garmap street maps, Oregon provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. The Garmap topographic maps take advantage of Oregon's 3-D map view which gives you a better perspective of your elevation. With optional BlueChart® g2 Vision, you'll get everything you need for a great day on the water including depth contours, navigation aids and harbours details. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.
