Garmin's new GPS line: the Oregon, several flavors available

These look pretty nice. Garmin’s new GPS line, dubbed Oregon, is all touchscreen (possibly troublesome for rugged button-lovers), kind of chubby, and comes in three basic flavors:

  • The 200, which has only the base map and is missing some cool features like an altimeter and compass ($480)
  • The 300, which has a worldwide map and those other things but no details or topos($530)
  • The 400, which has a worldwide map “with imagery,” and detailed maps of either coastal waters (for boaters), inland lakes (for fishers), and one with US topos and 3D views (for me.)(all are $640)

Well, if you’re rich and get lost easily, these are probably a good solution. They’ll be available starting in August.
