Garmin has long been the leader in the handheld GPS market. As time has moved on we have seen improvements in the technology and displays, with the handheld GPS devices becoming more and more powerful. We have also witnessed a convergence between handheld and in-car PNDs. For years now we have been using PDAs with Topo mapping, but Garmin broke that mould with the 60cx range a few years ago.

At CES this year we saw the introduction of the Garmin Colorado with it's controversial wheel control, some people love it others hate it... Now we see the culmination of the development with a touch screen Garmin Handheld the Garmin Oregon series.

Garmin have 3 models in the range with varying specifications and included maps. All have the capability to load additional mapping and data on a microSD card, and will provide users with turn by turn navigation (if the correct maps are loaded).

I played with this device in a store a couple of weeks ago and was impressed by its user friendliness. Its GUI is really much nicer than both the Colorado and the 60Csx However it doesn't feel as robust as the other two with its touch screen. It also appears as Gamin's products need a couple of years of bug fixes before they are mature enough (conclusion from reading various forums on the web). You can find more about this here.
