Ordered the Oregon today

Ordered the Oregon today, I needed an entry level unit to see how it works out for me. If I like it or find it lacking, Ill save some bucks and invest in something else in a year or so.

I will follow up and let you know how this works out for me. I have alot to learn about using the GPS.

But at $150, you still have buy maps
Open source mapping is a wonderful thing, not to mention the old Topo v8 disk I have sitting here. . There are options.

Just ordered the ram cradle with ball from Overton's for under $14. Got plenty of arms and mounts here already.

GPS city will match the price of Cabelas on the oregon unit for those interested. I shot them a note this weekend and they responded. Indicated 149 was below there cost.

Garmin Oregon 550T Sale $229 from $599

Cabela's have the Garmin Oregon 550T on sale from $599.00 sale price $229.00
it also has a 3mg camera in it.

This has just been reduced due to a new model coming out it is on other sites as well but Cabela's was the lowest I could find and a reliable company.

I pulled the trigger on a Garmin 62S from Cabela's for $220 last month. Well, all I have done with it since is put batteries in it, let it find the satellites, and then I turned it off. I am just so busy now, I don't know if I have the mindshare to try to figure out how to use it (only have used car gps previously), buy some topo maps (or maybe find some free ones), and find a mount for it. I would think I could get my money back out of it ($220 shipped CONUS). Someone talk me into learning how to use it or putting it in the FM!

I would have gone with 78 for $200 from WestMarine.com don't know their price for "S" but do you need it?

If you keep it, check out my 60/76/62/78 setup notes on DualSportWest.com It will make it much mor user friendly.

I found a local (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) pawn shop with two new 62S units at $160 each. Not a bad price. He has them marked at $250 in the display but offered me both for $320, but I don't need them. He said I could tell others and he would honor that price of $160 each.
