Get Your Bearings
Oregon 450 has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass,
which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without
holding it 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 your 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 (see maps tab for compatible maps).
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.
