Garmin Oregon 400t review

GarminGarmin Oregon 400t review at LetsGoMobile : Garmin's slogan seems clear: 'Limitation shows the master." When I open the box, I can see a screen with solid plastic edges, with only one button and no antenna in sight. Since my GPSmap 60CS has many buttons and an easy-to-spot antenna, I instantly become somewhat suspicious. Furthermore, the content of the package is limited; it contains the device, a USB cable, a carabiner clip, a quick start guide and a manual in English.

Garmin Oregon 400t review - Brightness of the screen
LetsGoMobile says: "While reviewing the Colorado 300, I had to come to the unfortunate conclusion that the new type of screen caused problems now and again. In particular during daytime, it is hard to view certain things on the screen. On paper, the Oregon and Colorado feature the same screen, although in reality there is a huge difference. The Garmin Oregon 400t has a matte screen surface where reflection doesn't stand a chance. Although this is without question an improvement in certain situations, it can at times be hard to read the screen without the background light on. To prevent this from happening, the Oregon GPS device will activate the light upon touching the screen. This does improve things a lot, but is hard on the batteries. I will come back to that later."

LetsGoMobile continues: "Although the Oregon is mainly made to use during walks, it is also applicable while travelling by car. The Tripcomputer even has a dashboard design, at which the top part of the screen contains a speedometer and an odometer. If we wish to travel to a certain destination, we have to press the 'Where to?' button. After that, we can select all kinds of Points of Interest and Waypoints, made by ourselves etcetera. If we click on the option Addresses, we gain access to a nicely improved menu. The screen turns into a keyboard and we can insert letters and figures by touching the screen. It works very well and truly is an improvement."

Garmin Oregon review

Garmin 400t review
In October 2008, the 400t was launched as top model of the Garmin Oregon series. New for this type of GPS handhelds is the touchscreen, taking things even a step further than the Colorado series. The amount of buttons is now limited to one; the on/off button. I am particularly curious about the energy consumption, considering the camera contains more electronics. The model costs approximately 100 Euros more than the Oregon 300, which has a standard preloaded topographic map of Europe.
