Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd., 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 features with just one hand - most with just one thumb. The deviceswere announced in preparation for the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and will be on display at the Garmin booth.

“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 Colorado is remarkably easy to use with its thumb-driven Rock ’n Roller wheel.” 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 plays well with others, allowing for wireless exchange of tracks, waypoints and geocaches between units.

Colorado handheld GPS - Wherigo
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.

Garmin Connect
Garmin knows its users have many interests, so the Colorado 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 Colorado can be enjoyed later by downloading and sharing the data as one of nearly two million activities on Garmin Connect.
