    Default One more reason I love my new Oregon 550T

    I was out caching with Shewolf and she has an Oregon 550T too. She didn't have a geocache in hers that I had so I sent her Oregon the geocache info by wireless transfer from mine. No muss, no fuss, no reading off and putting in coordinates by hand.

    Gotta love it. LOL

    Yup, Mainiac1957 and Hiram 357 helped me out the same way doing the kayak caches up in Abbott. It sure is a good thing!

    I just picked up the Oregon 450 but haven't tried out the wireless feature yet. Haven't got another one near to play with. Pam (JustPJ66) isn't interested in upgrading from her eTrex Venture HC because she loves the way it works for what she needs.

    I found something else the Oregon 550T will do. I submerged it to take this picture of a crawdad.

    I don't think I'd submerge something I paid as much for as a 550T. Glad you don't have any qualms doing so, though. lol

    But that's what they are built to do. They have a rating that allows them to be submerged. Same idea as the Olympus "tough" series of cameras which will go down to 30+ feet. The one thing I would do with a 550 is to have it on a float strap seeing as they will sink.

    That was one of the first things I did with my 60 CSx was to put it under water. It said it was capable and I wanted to know if it was. Better to find out in a controlled situation, than to drop it in water by accident.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    No zoom involved. I had the Oregon about 4 inches from him under water. LOL

    Does that fancy compass thingy beam all the cache page info too?
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    At least in my experience. Just sends the waypoint data, not the GPX file.
