Garmin Oregon 700/750/750t – GPS accuracy review

Reviewing the GPS accuracy of the new Garmin Oregon 7×0(t) series while hiking and mountain biking.

The new Oregon 7×0(t) series comes with a full GPS feature set:

  • GPS
  • GLONASS (can be activated if needed)
  • WAAS/EGNOS (can be activated if needed)
  • Optimized A-GPS for speeding up GPS acquisition time (downloadable EPO "Extended Prediction Orbit" satellite data).
  • New GPS antenna design for improving GPS satellite reception (now on the top side).

What did we find – compared to the Oregon 6×0 series?

  • Oregon 700/750 exhibits a better GPS accuracy than its predecessors (screenshots below).
  • The accuracy of tracklogs is not always better. The new series tends to a GPS drift as well (even slighter), especially in steep-sided valleys.
  • The GPS acquisition time is far shorter.
