New to the GPS world & Oregon 450??
« 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
