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.
Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend - an avid hiker and climber, but as it turned out I was mistaken in thinking it was something she would want. To her credit she did try it out on some local walks, but it wasn't as intuitive as either of us would have preferred, and she pretty much decided she didn't like it. Three months later I bought Backcountry Navigator Pro for my smartphone, and it seems to be a lot easier to use (not to mention being waaaaaaay less expensive).
Summary: great product but software lacks user friendliness. you'd think garmin could do better with its top end models. we'll see how it does on a road trip and i'll update. as of now(feb 1,2013) i've spent $279 more on maps. that brings the total(so far) to around $900, much to expensive for a hard to figure out device.
Summary: This GPS is good. I bought one for my dad here on amazon. What they don't tell you is that the one you order on amazon doesn't come with screen protectors. This is not a major financial calamity, but annoying if you are planning on heading out quadding or sledding for the day. No one want to use their new $700 dollar gps without screen protectors. My same 650t I bought only months prior from a dealership came with I believe four screen protectors.
Summary: Ho acquistato per viaggiare in moto questo navigatore ma non sono mai riuscito ad usarlo come navigatore. Le istruzioni non mi sono chiare ,non so se dipende da me . Il touchscreeen funziona ma le funzioni del navigatore non le capisco. Credo che il prodotto sia valido. Vorrei sapere dal venditore come va usata la scheda contenuta nella confezione. Grazie.
