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: This was a slam dunk. I almost fell over when I saw what a difference an extra inch of screen means. Thing is HUGE! Super bright, very easy to read. Not for your pocket.

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: I've read other reviews on the Montana 600 series and Garmin's base camp before I purchased this unit, and almost didn't buy it because the reviews stating problems with base camp and the software was not user friendly.
