The Garmin Oregon 600t can be recharged using its rechargeable NiMH pack (included). You can also power the 600t using traditional AA batteries if you cannot recharge the system whilst you are using it on an adventure. The NiMH pack battery life is 16 hours.
The unit features a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and GLONASS satellite tracking meaning there are more satellites for the device to lock on to. This will ensure you maintain satellite fix in built-up areas and woodlands.
The device also offers paperless geocaching providing full descriptions, cache photos, hints and logs and can store up to four million geochaches!
With BaseCamp software you can plan your trips viewing waypoints, tracks and routes before you set out. Share information about your adventure(s) with friends and family in 2-D or 3-D on a computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles.
If you would like a built-in 8 megapixel autofocus camera that provides digital zoom and automatic flash - which can also be used as a torch we recommend you buy the Garmin Oregon 650 (without topo maps) or 650t (with topo maps). With either of these Garmin systems every photo taken is geotagged so that you can navigate back to the same location again.
