Post by: Zrt1200 on December 14, 2011, 09:13:33 PM
HI Guys, At age 51 am I not totally new to GPS but sense my last gps was 12 years old and only did way points I am basically new to this and I am not a computer whiz either. Anyways I overheard my wife saying I am getting a Garmin Oregon 450 for Christmas and I need to get up to speed on these new GPS.  I will be using this GPS for Hunting, Snowmobiling, Kayaking, And I am going to try geocaching as it sounds like a good family outing. I have been reading this and other forums and I see I can download all sorts of things. From what I have read I should get use to BaseCamp for mapping on the Oregon?? So where do I start?? Thank you in advance for every ones help!! Zrt

If you found the Garmin Oregon Wiki, you need go no further, most everything you need to know about the Oregon is there.

If you have further questions about the Oregon, please do post them there! About Maps? Post them here!
