Oregon 600 has reflective display technology for the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we’ve ever made. It"s as vivid in full bright sunlight as it is in shade. The screen has been strengthened for impact resistance but still accommodates gloved operation. And with dual-orientation, multi-touch screen, you won’t just look at maps, you’ll interact with them when you zoom in, pan out and rotate the display.
Oregon 600 features our state-of-the-art dual battery system. You’ll have the option of using the internally rechargeable NiMH pack (included) or traditional AA batteries — NiMH pack charges when the device is connected to external power.
Oregon 600 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation to show where you"re heading even when standing still, or not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. You can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With its high-sensitivity, WAAS- and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 600 locates your position quickly and precisely, and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
