Touch and Go
Oregon 550 makes rugged navigation effortless with a tough, 3" (7.62 cm) diagonal, sunlight-readable, color touchscreen display. The interface is easy to use, so you'll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Both durable and waterproof, Oregon 550 is built to withstand the elements; bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator.
Get Your Bearings
Oregon 550 has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows where you're heading even when you're standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you 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-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Oregon 550 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Oregon 550 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Oregon, Colorado® and Dakota® users. Now you can send your favorite hike to your friend to enjoy or the location of a cache to find. Sharing data is easy. Just touch "send" to transfer your information to similar units.
