The Ordnance Survey website says “From the moment you cradle the 600 in your hand, you’re ready to enter into a bold new world of Garmin outdoor navigation. With high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking (more satellites mean faster fixes, even in challenging environments), preloaded worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, you don’t just look at maps, you intuitively interact with them. Zoom in, pan out and rotate using multi-touch in any conditions and even with most gloves. The reflective display technology boosts touchscreen brightness so much that maps and displays are as vivid in full bright sunlight as they are in shade”.
Now you can wirelessly transfer large files such as photos, geocaches, routes and Custom Maps between Oregon 600-series devices. Plus, new technology allows your routes, waypoints and tracks to transfer up to 50 times faster. Sync your data such as waypoints, geocaches, tracks and images to the Garmin Cloud.
Ordnance Survey are offering an exclusive offer – Bundled with the handset is GB Discoverer™ 1:50K Ordnance Survey mapping for the whole of Great Britain on one microSD card.
