Garmin's innovative new Oregon 600 handheld GPS system is about to hit the shelves - but there's only one place to get your hands on it first, and that's at leading leisure equipment and clothing retailer, GO Outdoors.
Using the latest GPS technology to help keep you on track - whatever the conditions - the Oregon 600 is an especially impressive addition to Garmin's much-trusted collection. Its screen is specifically designed to be effective outdoors, so whether you're shrouded by gloom or the bright sun is beating down, you shouldn't have any trouble with readability.
"Garmin is one of the best-known names in GPS technology, with a long track record of producing quality devices. We're very excited to be able to offer the Oregon 600 first and we're expecting it to fly off the shelves," said Gavin Garth, Head of eCommerce at GO Outdoors. "The Oregon 600 is a great choice for any would-be explorer and is a worthy addition to Garmin's 600 series."
The Oregon 600 combines GPS and the GLONASS satellite network, providing users with access of up to 24 extra satellites as well as making locking on 20 per cent faster and more accurate. Its Hotfix satellite prediction allows the device to maintain GPS even in deep valleys or heavy cover, while its three-axis compass has automatic tilt adjustment that allows the Oregon 600 to provide an accurate bearing even when moving, resting or being held at an angle.
In addition, the Oregon 600 features Bluetooth compatibility. This enables smartphone connectivity via the BaseCamp mobile app, so you can share pictures and discuss your adventures with your friends whilst you're on the move.
The Garmin Oregon 600 is currently available for pre-order at GOOutdoors.com for a discount card price of £369.99 - a 28 per cent saving on the retail price.
Best of all, when you stop by at the GO Outdoors website you'll find a spectacular range of great products - including GO Outdoors head torches and GO Outdoors fishing tackle boxes - so whether you're trekking out into the hills or trying your hand at angling, you're sure to find something that's ideal for you.
