Top Garmin Outdoor GPS Units
Garmin Oregon Series – If you want an absolutely rugged next generation outdoor Garmin GPS that offers cool looks as well as plethora of features, the Garmin Oregon series is definitely for you.
Garmin Oregon 400T has already been reviewed in detail separately, and you can take a look at this review here.
All Garmin Oregon units come preloaded with the U.S. topographies, and top notch features like barometric altimeter, fascinating color display, cool-looking touch screen, a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, wireless data sharing, and the likes of them.
However, the Garmin Oregon GPS units are a costly affair, as they come with a starting price tag of $400+.
Garmin Dakota Series
The Garmin Dakota models are extremely lightweight GPS devices, which combine rich set of features, and rugged waterproof body in a sleek compact design.
They also have a high sensitivity GPS receiver like that of the Garmin Oregon series GPS navigators.
What’s more, you get 20 hours of battery life, and much more; so they’re the way to go, if you need a waterproof GPS in lightweight and trendy design.
They're also priced around the same range as that of the Garmin Oregon series navigators.
GPSMAP 60 CSx
Coming to the high performance GPSMAP 60CSx navigator, it is one of the best handheld GPS outdoor navigators that has the features of the latest generation GPS devices, along with added goodies that are missing in the other 60–series units.
As far as the pricing goes, Garmin Oregon, Dakota, as well as GPSMAP 60 CSx are quite close; the 60 CSx may cost you about $50 greater than the other 60-series products, and the Dakota series units.
However, the GPSMap 60 CSx scores over the Oregon and Dakota series with its portable nature, and capability to be used as a handheld GPS under all circumstances. They're also ideal for trekking purposes.
Garmin eTrex Series
For the adventure-lovers, the Garmin eTrex GPS units are simply a superb option, which are ideal for adventurous trips like hunting, and trekking.
The versatile Garmin eTrex series of outdoor handhelds features rugged shell, and they come loaded with high-sensitivity GPS receivers to help you in holding on to your position even in the deepest cover.
