Get Your Bearings
Garmin 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 Garmin Oregon 450 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly other compatible Oregon, Colorado and Dakota users. Now you can send your favorite hike to your friend to enjoy or the location of a cache to find. Sharing data is easy. Just touch “send” to transfer your information to similar units.
Adding more maps is easy with Garmin’s wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. With its microSD™ card slot, Garmin Oregon 450 lets you load TOPO U.S. 24K maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). Oregon 450 also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps.
Garmin Oregon 450 supports OpenCaching.com GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit.

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.
