Release Date Information As we near the shipping dates for preorders, please note that we update all release dates using the most currently-available information directly from Garmin. Product launches can be potentially delayed as refinements are made by the manufacturer, however this is beyond our control. Your best bet to receive your Oregon 6-series as soon as possible is to ensure you have a pre-order at GPS City. If you wish to modify a preorder, please contact us directly instead of canceling/reissuing your order, as this action may cause you to move down in the shipping queue.
From the moment you cradle the 600t in your hand, you’re ready to enter into a bold new world of Garmin GPS mapping and positioning. With high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking (more satellites mean faster fixes, even in challenging environments), preloaded TOPO U.S. 100K maps, worldwide basemap with shaded relief and a faster processor, you don’t just look at maps, you 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. And capture every point of interest and track back to it with customizable buttons for 1-touch waypoint marking.
Touch and Go
Oregon 600t was purposely engineered for the outdoors. It features the most brilliant, sunlight readable touchscreen we’ve ever put on a Garmin handheld, strengthened for impact resistance but with multi-touch and dual orientation views that still accommodate gloved operation. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this mapping-oriented navigator.
Double Your Power
Oregon 600t features our state-of-the-art dual battery system. You’ll have the option of using the internally rechargeable NiMH pack (not included) or traditional AA batteries — NiMH pack charges when the device is connected to external power.
Explore the Terrain
Oregon 600t comes with built-in U.S. topographic data for the continental U.S. and a worldwide basemap with shaded relief — all the tools for serious climbing or hiking. Map detail includes national, state and local parks and forests, along with terrain contours, elevation information, trails, rivers, lakes and points of interest.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 600t has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer tilt compensation, which shows where you're heading even when you’re standing still, and not holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS- and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, Oregon 600t locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Oregon 600t you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible Garmin handheld devices. Plus, you can share large files too like photos, Garmin Adventures and Custom Maps. Just touch "send" to transfer your information.
Adding more maps to Oregon is easy. Load TOPO U.S. 24K maps and hit the trail; add Trailhead Series TOPO maps and explore famous treks like the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail; plug in BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water; or load City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. Add satellite images to your maps with BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required).

No more picking, choosing and planning, just download them all. The Oregon 600t can hold an unlimited number of geocaches. Not just one thousand, not just one million. Unlimited.

Plan Your Next Trip
Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp, software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
