G armin introduced the Colorado series of handheld GPS devices for outdoor, marine and fitness enthusiasts. With the addition of Garmin's revolutionary Rock ’n Roller wheel, you really can operate its many navigation features with just one hand - most with just one thumb. The GPS navigation devices were announced last week during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Weighing only 7.3 ounces with 15 hours of life from two AA batteries, the Colorado is the perfect companion for any outing with its electronic compass, barometric altimeter and photo viewer. The SD memory card slot is ideal for loading additional MapSource detail.

Garmin Colorado GPS

 

Garmin handheld GPS

The Garmin Colorado handheld GPS also displays air temperature as well as data from an optional heart-rate monitor and/or speed and cadence sensor. "Whether you're climbing in the Rockies, fishing an unfamiliar river or geocaching with your family, the Colorado brings your environment to life in unprecedented detail," said Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of worldwide sales. "And yet for having so many new features and customizable options, the Garmin Colorado GPS is remarkably easy to use with its thumb-driven Rock 'n Roller wheel."

High-sensitivity GPS receiver

On land or at sea, you'll never lose your way with Colorado's high-sensitivity GPS receiver, shaded-relief and satellite imagery mapping and vibrant color 3-inch screen with high resolution. And the Colorado GPS plays well with others, allowing for wireless exchange of tracks, waypoints and geocaches between units.

No matter your outdoor interests, there's a Colorado for you. The Garmin Colorado 400t handheld GPS gives hikers state-of-the-art 3D elevation perspective and preloaded U.S. topographic maps. The Garmin Colorado 400i GPS offers anglers shoreline details, depth contours and boat ramps for U.S. inland lakes and navigable rivers. The Garmin Colorado 400c handheld GPS is your coastal companion, providing chart coverage for the coastal U.S. and Bahamas. The Colorado 300 handheld GPS features a worldwide basemap with shaded relief.

Wherigo Player application

Colorado users will be the first to experience Wherigo, the newest GPS-based activity from Groundspeak, the people who made geocaching a worldwide phenomenon. Wherigo (pronounced "where I go") is a toolset for creating and playing location-based multimedia experiences in the real world. Using the Wherigo platform, Wherigo authors can build exciting adventure games, historical tours or other innovative activities. Wherigo players use the Colorado or other GPS device running the Wherigo Player application to visit physical locations, use virtual items, interact with virtual characters and solve real world puzzles.

Garmin and Groundspeak will host special events to teach people more about Wherigo and let them experience it for themselves. Also, a limited-edition geocoin has been minted to commemorate the launch of Colorado and Wherigo. Details on the Wherigo experience, events and geocoins can be found at the Garmin blogs website. And geocaching just got easier with the Colorado, which quickly downloads online information for every cache, such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints and description, so that you don't have tote printouts with you.

Garmin knows its users have many interests, so the Colorado handheld GPS lets you customize five profiles - automotive, marine, recreation, fitness or paperless geocaching - making the most beneficial features for each activity the easiest to access through quick shortcuts. And every outing with the Garmin Colorado navigation can be enjoyed later by downloading and sharing the data as one of nearly two million activities on Garmin Connect Service. The Garmin Colorado 300 GPS has a suggested retail price of $499. The Garmin Colorado 400t, Colorado 400i and Colorado 400c have a suggested retail price of $599.
