The Garmin Oregon 650 uses the latest software and GPS technology to keep you on track and updated in any conditions, with an outdoor-perfected screen for great readability in bright sun or gloomy shade. This is the third substantial upgrade this unit has gone through and what a result, a great touch screen GPS unit.
It is similar to the Oregon 600 BUT it comes with a 8 mb autofocas camera with flast. It also has a rechargable battery pack that can be used with the unit, but you can still also use traditional AA bateries. The flash on the camera can also be used as a torch. Finally it comes with a whopping 3.5 gb of internal memory (Oregon 600 has 1.5 gb). Lots of extras for an extra £60.00 compared to the Oregon 600.
Also bundled with the handset is the 2015 version of the GB Discoverer 1:50K OS Mapping for the whole of Great Britain (worth £200 when sold separately) - all of GB's OS Landranger maps on a micro SD card in one portable unit, just plug the card in and you're ready to go!
The Garmin GB Discoverer Mapping does not cover Northern or Southern Ireland, if you require mapping for these areas we can install free of charge on to the internal memory of the GPS some Open Source Mapping covering these areas.
Please advise us in the Delivery Instructions at Checkout if you require this additional mapping.
Combining the GPS and GLONASS satellite network gives access to up to 24 extra satellites and means locking on is more accurate and approximately 20% faster, while Hotfix® satellite prediction maintains GPS location even in heavy cover or deep valleys. The 3-axis compass has automatic tilt adjustment that ensures an accurate bearing whether you're moving, resting, or holding the unit at an angle. A barometric altimeter logs your altitudeand can be used over time to build up a picture of changing weather conditions.
The ability to pinch-zoom and tilt between portrait and landscape views makes it easy to get your bearings quickly, and the screen is very responsive even when wearing most types of gloves. Full track view is a new feature that allows you to see your entire elevation view and quickly move to any point, while future plot uses mapping data to tell you what to expect ahead. Free BaseCamp™ software can be downloaded from Garmin and allows you to view and organise your maps, waypoints, routes and tracks in 2D or 3D before uploading to the unit for use on the go.
The Oregon 650 is also Bluetooth compatible which enables smartphone connectivity via the BaseCamp mobile app, so you can share your adventures online as you travel. Large files like custom maps and routes can also be transferred to other Oregon 650 series units, and the ANT wireless capability means you can connect with optional extras like heart rate or temperature sensors to add an extra level of detail to your experience. Large numbers of geocaching GPX files can be downloaded straight to the unit for paperless geocaching, with the unit displaying location, terrain and difficulty as well as hints and tips where available. Caches can be easily filtered to make searching as simple as possible.
