From the moment you cradle the 650 in your hand, you're ready to enter into a bold new world of Garmin GPS mapping and positioning. With high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking (more satellites mean faster fixes, even in challenging environments), a worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, you don't just look at maps, you interact with them. Zoom in, pan out and rotate using multi-touch. The touchscreen even is compatible with many gloves. The reflective LCD display boosts touchscreen brightness so much that maps and displays are as vivid in full bright sunlight as they are in shade. And, mark memories with an 8 megapixel autofocus camera with digital zoom and automatic flash/torch, plus customizable buttons for 1-touch image capture and waypoint marking.
Now you don't have to take an additional camera with you to take quality photos. Oregon 650's built in 8 megapixel autofocus digital camera takes photos worthy of sharing. And each photo is geotagged with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to navigate back to that exact spot in the future. Then share the photos from your Oregon 650 via USB with all your friends through Garmin Adventures, the online adventure sharing community. For more storage, insert a microSD card; you can even view pictures from other devices on microSD with Oregon's picture viewer.
Double Your Power
Oregon 650 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.
Touch and Go
Oregon 650 was purposely engineered for the outdoors. It features the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we've ever put on a Garmin handheld, strengthened for impact resistance but with multi-touch and dual orientation views that still accommodate gloved operation. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this mapping-oriented navigator.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 650 has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation, which shows where you're heading even when you're standing still, and not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS- and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, Oregon 650 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Oregon 650 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible Garmin handheld devices. Plus, you can share large files too like photos, Garmin Adventures and Custom Maps. Just touch "send" to transfer your information.
Adding more maps to Oregon is easy. Load TOPO U.S. 24K maps and hit the trail; add Trailhead Series TOPO maps and explore famous treks like the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail; plug in BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water; or load City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads.
