So I think I have settled on the Garmin Oregon 450t-Canada. Ya, I know, I am going a little more pricey than I had planned.
Am looking for any feedback on what people think of this one. It looked pretty good on GPScity, and it seems to come with a basemap and topo-Canada. I was looking at some of these topo maps, and they pretty much make the difference in cost from the Oregon 200 and the one I'm getting.
Please tell me what you think, as I can always send it back if it's a huge mistake.
Thanks Shifty

200T @ costco is $299. Only difference is internal memory is smaller, and the 200t can't to unit-to-unit transfer (a feature you probably will never need to use). It still has microsd so you can load a lot of POI's on it.

CB, as soon as you say 'probably will never need to use' it's the first thing you miss! Jester

I met coast2coast2coast at a FTF one day and invited him to join me for a couple more caches before we headed our separate ways. We both had unit-to-unit capable to GPS units and so I 'beamed' him the two caches we were going to find and off we went!

Well, its certainly a nice-to-have, but not something that would be needed all the time, as you can always enter coord's the old fashioned way! Smile

When we bought or 200 at Costco ($299) it came with the Topo Canada maps. Not sure if they are still included but it might be worth checking. Yes indeed CB, the old fashioned way of entering a couple of waypoints works just fine and to us didn't justify the extra cost, even for a 300.

The costco oregon 200 includes topo maps.

You will also need a SD card, but you can get a fairly large one for $20 or less.

I guess my problem with the Oregon 200 is that my Costco card has expired and I don't wanna pay the extra $60 in order to get this GPS. Also, in all of the stores that I have gone to (as well as online), they no longer sell the 200, so am wondering if the 200 is slowly being phased out. I figured the 450t has all the bells and whistles except the camera - which I don't need. This seems to be a fairly new version of the Oregon line, so I thought I would be getting a fair amount of years of good use out of it. And, I liked the idea of being able to communicate with other Oregons at an event or something like that, as that is what I would eventually like to be doing.
I did also order and extra SD card for this unit as well.

Any of the oregon series should be fine. I have no information on the above 200 models aside that they should work in a similar fashion.
