nullIn other hey-that-expensive-gadget-I-just-bought-is-now-obsolete news, GPS Tracklog got their hands on the New Hotness that is the Garmin Oregon.

They only had time to take it on a quick bike ride with an older Garmin 60CSx to compare accuracy, as well as fool around with the touch screen for a little bit.

Preliminary impressions look good — although it appears to still have the screen brightness problems that bothered me about the Colorado. This new unit may be worth it for vastly improved text entry alone, though.
