10 Touchscreen Smartphones compared

Garmin Oregon 550t

We’ve had cameras with built in GPS so now it’s time for a GPS with a built in camera! Garmin have taken their award-winning Oregon GPS system and stuck a 3.2 megapixel camera in it with 4x optical zoom – enough to rival a lot of phones on the market today – perfect for those times when you’re trekking up a mountain and want to take a picture of the view but find your phone’s dead.

Enough about the camera, the GPS system is pretty advanced too – the built-in memory has enough room for 2,000 waypoints, 200 routes and 5,000 geocaches and comes loaded with 100,000 maps with 3D perspective rendering. Operation is via a 3-inch touch screen and can be mounted inside a car for in-vehicle use.
