Question

barometric altitude

My hiking is in mountainous terrain. The device shows altitude/elevation from barometric variations. If the weather changes/front moves through the area, and you haven't changed location, would the device show a change of altitude? Wouldn't it show a change of altitude even if you didn't move position when the barometric pressure changes? What is the accuracy of the altitude? How is the starting barometric pressure entered?

It is recommended by the manufacturer that the Garmin® Oregon 450T GPS, item # IK- 270028, be recalibrated every hour to ensure the best accuracy. The unit can change the elevation internally if the barometric pressure changes. When calibrated the accuracy is +/- 10 feet. When calibrating the correct elevation or air pressure must be entered into the gps.
