tough to operate and poor instructions

Raymond G. Moreau, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: we all use touch screen devices these days and I am a computer science major. This device is a pain in the butt. I do search and rescue on horse back. it is difficult to maneuver to the correct screen with slightest touch it jumps around. for some reason the trip odometer resets itself to 79 miles without my even accessing the function which of course looses all my data.

good product...almost

  • Summary: I am studying geology, and have some slightly unique needs, but the Montana 650t does not seem to be up-to-date. For example, the screen resolution is poor, almost back to MS Dos days. The touch screen requires as much or more force than pressing an actual button, and that should be updated to perform like other touch screen devices. The maps become pixelated when zooming in. Basecamp software is not the most user friendly.

Not Happy with Garmin Montana 650T

Brian Quinn, Amazon
7 November 2012
  • Summary: This is my second 650T in a month. The first was not accurate at all and the picture would jump all over the place when i'm at a standstill. The City Navigator Map also changes views without my even touching the device. Garmin said they never heard of that problem and exchanged my 650T for a brand new one. The new one wouldnt let me install my City Navigator Mapping onto it. I keep getting an error message. I am waiting for an answer from Garmin on that problem.

POS keep shopping

  • Summary: Bought Garmin Montana 650t 5 months ago. Garmin online support is terrible. Use as a navigational aid is some what better. Bought a preprogrammed data card of topo maps, extra $100 bucks. Had to call tech support. They told me how to install but neglected to inform me the little metal cover can be easily broken during installation. Arrgh! Keep looking for another product.

Not fit for purpose

Johnp, Amazon

  • Summary: The mapping card was too big to fit the Montana, so I wasted two hours of my time attempting to set it all up. It should have been possible to supply me with the correct card, but I had to send everything back and get a refund.

Map quality

Bogge, Amazon

  • Summary: Physical construction is really good. I bought the street map of Venice but it really is unusable. I know Venice is a particularly difficult map to produce due to all the narrow alleyways but I ended up buying a paper map which is much better and practical. The Garmin has gone into the drawer...! Will I ever use it? I doubt it. I have the pro Garmin in my car and it is really good ! The camera is not up to scratch either on the Montana. A very disappointed buyer....

Useful if you live in Exton

  • Summary: Many thanks to those of you who responded to my previous review of the Montana 650t. I have now bought the Garmin GB Discovery maps for the UK, and as a result, the SatNav functions now work after a fashion. The instruction leaflet is limited and incomplete so you will spend an age trying to get the settings right, but then the Montana does set a track you can follow. If you want to hear turn by turn directions you will have to buy another accessory.

Bereits 3. Gerät wegen Softwarefehlern!

Betinka, Amazon
7 July 2012
  • Summary: Kann mich den negativen Aussagen nur anschließen. Die Software ist grauenhaft! Die Fehlermeldungen geben noch nicht einmal einen Hinweis zur Fehlerbehebung und sind noch dazu sehr kryptisch. Habe bereits das 3. Gerät in 3 Monaten, da die beiden Vorgänger gravierende Softwarefehler hatten, so dass das Montana teilweise überhaupt nicht funktioniert hat. Das 2. war zudem auch nicht wasserdicht.

  • Summary: Lo he comprado con gran ilusion. he sido siempre cliente de TomTom pero queria un GSP para hacer senderismo. el montana 650GT es dificilisimo de manejar. eso despues de acudir hasta a los videos de YouTube. los mapas incluso los de pago son muy incompletos, el iPhone con sus vistas de satelite es mas completo y util que este dispositivo. sigo probandolo pero si no me convence lo devolveré.

Fortschritt ala Garmin ...

Usel, Amazon

  • Summary: Da die Montana-Varianten 600, 650 und 650t hardwaremäßig absolut identisch sind, stelle ich meine Bewertung auch hier ein: Den positiven Punkten der anderen Rezensenten möchte ich mich weitestgehend anschliessen. Herausragend dabei ist aus meiner Sicht das Konzept der variablen Stromversorgung - das ist sehr praxistauglich, vor allem für mehrtägige Unternehmungen abseits der "Zivilisation".
