The Garmin Oregon handheld brings the intuitive touch-screen interface to the world of rugged handheld GPS devices, and without sacrificing high-end features for even the most rigorous of backcountry expeditions. As About.com states in its editorial review, “Garmin takes another giant step toward taking the “geek factor” out of handheld GPS navigators and making them easy-to-use and consumer friendly.”

Rated4Stars Top Pick


We get many questions about finding a single GPS that does it all, taking you from car to trail to the lake or offshore. Oh, and geocaching would be nice, too. And, of course, it needs to be waterproof and have great battery life…oh and how about a removable battery to boot? Well, Garmin’s been busy on your behalf and the nüvi 500 series may be the ideal solution in the emerging “crossover” class of GPS systems…

Rated4Stars Top Pick


The past few years have seen dramatic advances in the GPS units we use in our cars, with intuitive, user-friendly interfaces and an ever-growing number of features. Though handheld units have certainly benefited from new, more sensitive GPS chips and other advances deep in their electronics, they haven’t realized the same sort of game-changing advances as their vehicle-based cousins…until now. Garmin’s Colorados series ushers in the next generation of handheld GPS units, offering a rich feature set while incorporating the ease of use you’ve grown accustomed to in the car, within a rugged, waterproof shell. Outside Magazine sums it up, "The Garmin Colorado 400t was born for serious backcountry time, and you won’t find a more user-friendly or durable handheld GPS" while About.com concludes that the "400t lives up to its promise of being a next-generation handheld GPS."

Garmin eTrex Legend H Handheld GPS: REVIEW

Garmin Legend H Handheld GPS Navigator

Our Rating

Latest Price from Amazon
Is this the best price?
Rated4Stars Top Pick


We first reviewed the Garmin eTrex Legend GPS in 2005 and were delighted to see that this classic workhorse is now available in an economic bundle that includes a PC cable, car power adapter, and Garmin MapSource U.S. Topo Map CD-ROM. Though it lacks some of the features we’ve come to expect in newer handhelds, such as a color screen or next-generation GPS chipset, the eTrex Legend remains a capable and proven workhorse in the Garmin family, and a beloved one at that (we still use ours), still used by many for a wide range of outdoor activities, including geocaching, despite its lack of any special geocaching features.

Garmin GPSMap 60csx Handheld GPS Navigator: REVIEW

Rated4Stars Top Pick

We thought we couldn’t like a handheld GPS more than the GPSMap 60cs, this unit’s predecessor, but with the GPSMap 60csx, Garmin shows us how it’s possible to turn great products into legendary ones. With effusive accolades from owners at Amazon, Epinions and elsewhere, it’s clear that Garmin has incorporated precisely the right enhancements into its “refresh” of the 60cs to make the 60csx a truly outstanding, best-in-class handheld unit, so much so that we’ve bestowed it our top rating of 5 stars.
