Compass Page
The Compass page guides you to your
destination by displaying a compass and
a bearing pointer.
It also provides navigation data such as
current speed, distance to the next point
on the route, and estimated arrival time.
The electronic compass (Oregon 300,
400t, 400c, and 400i) is similar to
a magnetic compass when you are
stationary or walking. If you maintain
a higher speed, such as traveling in
automobile, the compass uses GPS
signals to determine your direction. To
turn the electronic compass off, see
page 28.
To open the Compass page, touch
Compass.
Hold the compass level when navigating
to ensure maximum accuracy.

Bearing and Course Pointers
The Oregon can use either a bearing
or course pointer on the compass. The
bearing pointer indicates the direction to
your destination, and the course pointer
indicates your relationship to a course
line leading to the destination. To select
a bearing or course pointer, see page 28.

The course pointer provides an

of the compass ring. The scale refers
to the distance between dots on the

Fitness Setup
The Oregon can be used with an optional
Garmin heart rate monitor to display
your heart rate. It can also be used with
an optional Garmin speed/cadence bike
sensor to display your pedaling cadence.
When connected to the appropriate
Garmin device, the heart rate and bike
cadence values are listed as data-field
options on the Map page, the Compass
page, and the trip computer.
Pairing is connecting your Oregon with
wireless sensors, such as a heart rate
monitor or a speed/cadence bike sensor.
After you pair the first time, your Oregon
automatically recognizes the wireless
sensor whenever they are turned on and
within range of each other.
To pair the Oregon with a wireless
sensor:
1. Place the Oregon within 10 feet (3
meters) of the wireless sensor (heart
rate monitor or speed/cadence bike
sensor).

The best performance is provided by
Oregon Series Owner’s Manual
Appendix
lithium batteries and NiMH rechargeable
batteries less than one year old with a
capacity greater than 2500 mAh.
Consider the following suggestions to
maximize battery life:
• Do not adjust the backlight more
than is necessary (page 3). Using
a backlight level above 50% of
maximum level for a prolonged
period of time, will significantly
decrease battery life.
• Select a shorter backlight timeout
(page 22).
• Turn tones off if not needed
(page 22).
• Turn electronic compass off if not
needed (page 28).
• If you plan on using the Oregon
extensively in your automobile,
consider purchasing a vehicle power
cable (http://buy.garmin.com).
