Summary: I use my gps for my work and to sail on weekends, so I did buy a supposedly modern and reliable equipment, the Montana 650. Since about 5 months ago, every time I stop driving or walking the map that indicates the direction to go, rotates in any direction 90 or 45 or 180 degrees and only gets the...
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
Not as good as I expected. Very disappointed in Garmin warrenty

Summary: I guess I am quite disappointed with this unit for several reasons considering how much I paid for. .I purchased this unit for the large screen and the waterproof camera features and I hoped it had other more advanced features than my old DeLorme PN unit.
Summary: My Garmin will not communicate with my computer, and I have owned this less then a year. It has been meticulously cared for and does not work. For a $650 Garmin I am extremely disappointed. I am going to attempt to see what they will do to make this right.
Summary: The Garmin Montana 650t will not receive "chirp" info as advertised. Also it freezes and does not reveal hint, log, or other info. ..when geocaching. The screen is large and easy to read. I am returning my unit to Garmin but unfortunately they will only exchange with a refurbished unit.

Summary: Right from under the Xmas tree, the unit comes without Citi Navigator, it only shows main roads and freeways. This means you have to purchase this software, so another $100 to use it on the roads.
Summary: The Bundle includes an SD card but what Garmin don't tell you is that you cannot load up any of their other maps! You have to have the (original) SD card in the device to use the mapping and it allows no other storage without over-writing the bundle.
