Garmin Colorado 300 as a first GPS

Followers 0

Recommended Posts

Hey Forum, I'm just getting into geocaching and I'm purchasing my first GPS. I was looking at some and the Garmin Colorado 300 caught my eye and I am wondering If this is a good choice.


Was looking at it here, seems like a good price http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronic...=Price&fb=0


If anyone has any thoughts on whether or not this is a good idea or if there would be any better options in the £200 price range. Or anywhere that might be cheaper to buy these units that would be fantastic.


Any advice will be helpful :)

Yes, it has paperless Geocaching. Whether or not it is worse or better than the Oregons is a matter of personal preference.


The Colorado rocks in my book. It's been one of my "go to "gps's for some time now. You'd be hard pressed to find a GPS with the feature set the Colorado has at the prices advertised for it. The best prices I've seen have been at Rocketcamera.com and CascadeGPS.com around $239.


Go for it.

I would go with the OR over the CO. I say that having owned four COs before giving up on them. The OR has been pretty solid.


Are you in the GeoWoodstock Pack?

I agree. I own the Oregon 450 and I am very happy. Yes, it is still a little buggy, but I believe the issues will be resolved soon. Touchscreen is a huge step forward in GPSr's IMO. It makes entering waypoints WAY easier.

Not to mention the amazing high-res display on the Oregon.

And BTW, Garmin is currently offering a $50 rebate on the oregon x50 series....
