Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced the all new Oregon 600/600t and Oregon 650/650t (“t” indicating pre-loaded TOPO maps) touchscreen handheld GPS devices, featuring high-sensitivity GPS + GLONASS, pre-loaded TOPO U.S. 100K maps, worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, users won’t just look at maps, they’ll interact with them. Zoom in, pan out, and rotate using multi-touch in any conditions and even with most gloves. The reflective display technology boosts touchscreen brightness so much, maps and displays are as vivid in full bright sunlight as they are in shade. And mark the memories with an 8MP autofocus camera with digital zoom and automatic flash/torch, plus customizable buttons for one-touch image capture and waypoint marking— making the Oregon series a must have for serious outdoorsmen.

“The new Oregon series was re-designed to fit comfortably in a user’s palm and stylish enough to be mounted in a car,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Oregon uses the sun’s light to produce a display that is twice as bright compared to the previous models and works with many types of gloves. With new customizable buttons, compatibility with Garmin’s robust maps and un-paralleled ruggedness, the Oregon becomes one of the most versatile outdoor GPS devices on the market.”

The Oregon series has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation, which shows where users are heading even when they are standing still, or not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint users’ altitude, and they even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help keep an eye on changing weather conditions. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS/GLONASS enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon locates users position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. When using GLONASS satellites, the time it takes for the receiver to “lock on” to a position is (on average) approximately 20 percent faster than using GPS. And when using both GPS and GLONASS, the receiver has the ability to lock on to 24 more satellites than using GPS alone.
