Summary: I bought this product for hunting, hiking, and driving. I love everything about this GPS. It takes pictures that look good. It is worth it to save up a little extra if you are in the outdoors a lot. Thank you so much!!!!! Fast shipping!
Summary: I am a brand new owner of the Garmin Montana 650t. I have spent the last few days learning most of the functions and most of the menu items available on this device. I took it for a field test today and found a few geocaches. Everything worked very well. This machine is a huge jump in technical capability from my previous machine which was a Garmin Etrex C. I love the fact that there is only one button on the Montana and that is the On\Off button.
Summary: This is a great product for Geocaching but there certainly is a learning curve. The manual is almost useless in telling how to do things but once you figure out the function you want it does a beautiful job of display.
Summary: This is one of the best GPS devices I've used. I wish some of the features could be incorporated into my smaller cycling computers from Garmin. I'm sure the will be some day. Also wish Garmin would make the Montana compatible with Garmin Connect.
Pros: Big screen, sturdy build, touch screen works great, easy navigable menus, place to connect a lanyard, good battery life and ability to use regular easily obtainable AA batteries.
Cons: Big but so what. It fit's in your hand great and the weight isn't going to kill you. Might even save your life.
Summary: Garmin has gone over the top with this unit. I have used it for city driving, hiking, and geocaching. The touch screen is easy to use and once you have the icons setup for your needs it is even easier. I have a GPSMap62s that I have used for the last several years and it is still a great unit. The Montana 650t is much larger, however the increase in screen size was worth the price. The 62s on average would get me to within 10ft of a geocache, the 650t does just as well.
Summary: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Montana. It took a bit to get used to but I really like how fast it locks in to the satellites and love the fact that it has the rechargeable battery pack. Garmin is the ONLY way to go when it comes to a handheld GPSr!!!
Summary: I bought this GPS to use on the motorcycle mainly because of its long battery life and water proofness. I can also use it on my boat if I get the marine maps for it which I will next spring. Highly recommend buying the upgraded maps for it, they provide a bunch more detail than the stock maps.
Inferior support and products than previously experienced
4 October 2013
Summary: Purchased the Oregon 550T during 2009 and would rate it five stars. Most of its time is spent on my sport motorcycle and off-road motorcycle. Durable is the word for 550T. Purchased the Montana 650T with the same expectation of durability. The larger size is great, but it is larger. Mounting to self or motorcycle is inferior to 550T, and the back cover is sloppy.
