Rugged handheld GPS navigators should be one of the first items on any serious outdoors adventurer's checklist, since these things can provide a host of interesting (and perhaps even life-saving) features, and the Garmin Oregon 450t that we've had the chance of testing quite thoroughly, is a very good example of what a such a device should be able to offer
We're pretty sure that just about every single one of you have heard about Garmin, since this company has quite a long history in the field of navigation and orientation devices.
And although they do have quite an impressive lineup of GPS navigators designed specifically for in-car use, the truth of the matter is that Garmin offers numerous other products, targeting just about any type of environment you might be going through.
In fact, Garmin's got one covered whether he/she is driving a car or a motorcycle, sailing, piloting an airplane or even going for a run.
But beside all of the products mentioned above, Garmin has managed to establish itself over the years as one of the leading manufacturers of rugged handheld GPS navigators designed for the true outdoors adventurers, which combine a whole set of orientation instruments, while also adding a little oomph on the side.
In fact, that's pretty much the case with the the subject of our review, the Garmin Oregon 450t, which not only helps users find the best route to their desired destination, but also adds such features a built-in electronic compass, altimeter, pedometer, as well as extensive geocaching support.
