Garmin Oregon 200

UPDATE: The Oregon 200 has been discontinued. For current recommendations, check out our handheld GPS buyers guide or our Garmin handheld GPS comparison chart.

The Garmin Oregon 200 is the entry level model in Garmin’s touch screen Oregon line, offering a great backcountry navigation and/or paperless geocaching solution at a reasonable price. It doesn’t have a barometric altimeter or electronic compass, nor does it come with pre-loaded detailed maps. The latter is not a huge issue, given all the free maps available for it. You’ll want a micro-SD card for the maps though, as the 200 only has 24 MB of internal memory. The 200 also leaves out the ability to transfer data wirelessly between units.
