Nearly the perfect unit but it's size could take some getting use to.

Summary: I purchased this after having some issues with my Garmin Colorado 400C. I mainly use it for Geocaching and though it is easy to use and has a great touch color display and the battery seems to last very good there are three things that are not so great.
Summary: I'll start off by saying I generally really like Garmin Products. I've had one device functioning flawlessly for over a decade now. Another I use on a more or less daily basis for work. The hardware of the 650 is good. Nice big readable screen.
Summary: My husband did lots of research (so did I) before purchasing this product. The product was the best on the market and he swears by it. The difference in the Montana 600 and the Montana 650 is simply the camera (which he uses 5.0 megapixels).
Summary: There are several improvements that could me done to make these units better, and the Garmin customer service is NOT very good. I bought several different map packs to load on to this unit that were suggested for my needs of use by Garmin customer service, just to purchase and not do what was...
Summary: Pretty pricey but works well. I would probably look for a comparable lower priced unit. The touchscreen is nice, but if anything touches it you have to navigate back. When it is mounted in my cradle and on the battery charge there is a backlit message I can't make go away that says 100% charged.
Summary: Is Garmin Montana 650 good for walking and car driving in a city? Not by itself but it will do if you spend extra $$ for Garmin City Navigator North America NT. It is a lot of money but how good is it then? Sorry to say, but not very good.

Summary: This unit does work great! I especially like the size of the viewing screen. Only drawbacks that I see are it's large size for a hiker and that you need a case if you want to attach the unit to your backpack, belt, etc.
