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.
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.
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: 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.
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

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.
Summary: Perhaps an unfair comparison, but I naively thought that this GPS would have technology that rivaled the smart phone. Instead, I found, from a user perspective, a primtive device -- small display, poor illumination,lot of menus with no explanation and utterly unintuitive.
Cons: Hard To Read Maps, Not Intuitive, Poor Illumination, Poor Instructions
