This thread isn't doing much to bring me over to the dark side!
It is, however, locked to the original GPS for which it was purchased.
And I think that Garmin now includes a free one-year BIrdseye subscription with all their new GPS units (or at least they do with most models).
My Oregon 450 has died, on/off button doesn't work. What do I do now? I have relied on Basecamp for creating routs and archive my trips. I hike and travel in the car. I have OnStar and they consintly give really stupid directions. The 450 was small and easy to use, I will miss it.
