Get your bearings.
Oregon 450 has a built-in 3-axis, tilt-compensated electronic compass that shows your heading even when you’re standing still or not holding the device level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. See changes in elevation ahead of you and where you've been with enhanced track navigation. With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix™ satellite prediction, Oregon 450 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
Conveniently plug in optional, preloaded microSD cards for all your outdoor activities on land or water. Just insert a MapSource® card with detailed street maps, and Oregon provides turn-by-turn directions to your destination. Add select topographic maps to take advantage of Oregon’s 3-D map view, which gives you a better perspective of your elevation. With BlueChart® g2 , you’ll get everything you need for a great day on the water, including depth contours, navaids and harbors. The card slot is located inside the waterproof battery compartment, so you don't have to worry about getting it wet.
