With the summer heat dying down and the leaves beginning to fade, there’s no better time to get outdoors and do some good old-fashioned camping. Camping is one of the most inexpensive outdoor activities you can do and it’s just downright fun and relaxing. There’s nothing like setting up camp, building a fire, and sleeping under the stars. But before heading out, there’s always certain camping gear to make sure to bring. Items like a tent, sleeping bag, food, water, and even firewood, but what about a GPS handheld for navigation and self-assurance? Thanks to a redesigned antenna providing better satellite reception, the Oregon 750t GPS and GLONASS handheld puts even more of the great outdoors right at your fingertips.
Whether you’re camping, hiking, hunting, climbing, kayaking, or trail riding, the rugged Oregon 750t is ready for anything. The Oregon 750t handheld provides comprehensive navigation and tracking to guide you on and off the beaten path, using GPS and GLONASS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing, whether you’re moving or not. There’s also a TracBack feature on Oregon 750t to help you navigate back to your starting point the same way you came. You can also mark locations, such as your campsite, vehicle or other points of interest to which you’d like return navigation.
Thinking of geocaching next time your camping? The wireless Wi-Fi and Bluetooth links on your Oregon 750t makes it easier than ever to enjoy a superior geocaching experience. You can set your device to automatically stay up-to-date with all the latest caches from Geocaching.com. No more manual entry of coordinates or printing out cache details on paper.
Want to capture your camping experiences? Capture locations and memories with the 8-megapixel digital camera. Each photo is automatically geotagged, allowing you to easily navigate back to that exact spot in the future.
