Brand New handheld GPS unit with built in camera...ideal for geocaching
Take photos with the Oregon
The Garmin Oregon 550T combines rugged outdoor touchscreen navigation with a digital camera. It is perfect for all activities, in any climate, on any terrain, yet simple enough for beginners to master.
With a large 3-inch display it is easy to see where you are at all times. The 3-D elevation view gives you a real feel for the terrain when used with compatible mapping. A built-in camera means you can show everyone where you’ve been and you can even play the new GPS adventure game, Whereigo™ with others for a great day out.
Why the Garmin Oregon 550T?
Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to go, the Garmin Oregon 550T can help you make the most of your time outdoors.
Take photographs and geotag them
There’s no need to carry a separate camera in your pocket as Oregon 550T’s 3.2 mega pixel camera automatically geotags each photo with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to mark, remember and navigate back to that exact spot in the future.
3D elevation view
Appreciate the terrain with Oregon’s 3D elevation views. Visualise the contours on topographic maps to enjoy a better perspective.
Comes with 3-axis compass
The compass shows your heading even when the unit is not held flat.
A built-in barometer tracks changes in atmospheric pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. The altimeter screen plots elevation and profile. You can even plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
Wireless data transfer
Oregon 550T allows you to wirelessly share routes, tracks, waypoints and geocaches between compatible Garmin Dakota, Oregon, Colorado and Foretrex devices, and is compatible with Garmin heart-rate monitors and cadence sensors.
Expand your experience
You can store up to 2000 waypoints, 200 routes, 2000 geocaches and an active tracklog of up to 10,000 points and 200 saved tracks.
The expandable microSD card slot provides extra storage for waypoints, routes and tracks. Can be used for extra mapping to give your Oregon turn-by-turn navigation on road.
OS topographical mapping
Use Oregon’s Picture Viewer to transfer and browse images on the unit.
The Oregon 550T has a worldwide basemap with shaded relief so you can navigate anywhere with ease. It is waterproof and has a high sensitivity GPS receiver with Hotfix™ which means the Oregon finds your location quickly and maintains it even under tree cover or near tall buildings.
You can even add topographical mapping such as GB Discover™ to your Oregon 550T. Available as a plug-in SD card or a download, you can get 1:50,000 scale mapping for the whole of Great Britain in 3 regions – Southern England and Wales, Northern England and Midlands and Scotland.
With GB Discoverer you essentially see an Ordnance Survey OS Landranger map on the screen of your handheld, but it has the advantage of intelligent navigation. Use the touchscreen GPS to search, select and navigate to street addresses and attractions, follow routes on foot, in car or by bike all using the familiar Ordnance Survey platform. It even gives turn-by-turn directions when driving. See http://www.garmin.co.uk/garmin-gb-discoverer
for more information.
Geocaching is like a great outdoor treasure hunt that anyone can take part in. The Oregon 550T enables you to quickly download up to 2,000 caches, with information such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints and description — without the need for paper print-outs and manually entered coordinates.
