GarminGarmin Colorado 300 GPS review at LetsGoMobile : Garmin is treading new ground with the Colorado GPS series. An updated appearance and a more structured amount of buttons. The monitor has gained a higher resolution whilst the Rock 'n Roller makes its appearance. Just as is the case with mobile phones, the handheld can be adjusted to our use via profiles and we can share data wireless. Sporty users can connect a cadans meter. For me, the main change is the introduction of Wherigo, an enhancement that is similar to geocaching yet offers a lot more than just searching for caches. Take a closer look at the Garmin Colorado 300 and read the review at LetsGoMobile.

Besides the handheld GPS, we find the following in the box: 2 CDs with software, a USB cable and a carbine clip. But first, the handheld. The GPS device has the familiar solid Garmin appearance yet with more convenient dimensions. It's not that it has shrunk that much compared to the GPSMAP60 series; its proportions are handier. It’s a bit wider, thinner and shorter, also thanks to the smaller antenna.

LetsGoMobile adds: "Striking is the Rock 'n Roller, a smart combination of a dial, tilt and press button. The dial lets you scroll through the menus, zoom in and out in the twinkling of an eye, insert texts, set the alarm to the correct time and set the brightness of the backlight. Quite rightly a multifunctional component. At first, scrolling was a bit unhandy, the dial responses so quickly that I had trouble pressing the correct item. After a while, however, I got the hang of it, although I also used the tilt button frequently."

LetsGoMobile concludes: "If I look at the features alone, I get the feeling of watching a beautiful stereo set that lacked the money for a good set of matching speakers. The Garmin Colorado GPS offers a lot; however, the monitor makes it hard to enjoy this to the fullest. I can't but feel that the designer thought out a beautiful layout without realizing how reflections can badly influence the monitor in practice. I liked The Rock 'n Roller for zooming in on a map page and its possibilities to scroll. Inserting characters is fine however; to move the hands of a clock in order to set the alarm is more of a nostalgic feature than that it is practical. Some people have their doubts about the waterproof quality of the dial construction. As for me, I think Garmin will have taken no risks with guaranteeing the waterproof."
