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: 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.
The more you use it the better the results----money well spent!!

Summary: Very complex for an old 71 year old sheep hunter. After hours of playing around and determination I highly enjoyed the results. Like any new high tech device, the more you play with it the better the results.
Summary: This has been a great product so far. I have only been able to take it on a week long backpacking trip into the Dark Canyon Wilderness in SE Utah but it was a gem to have along. It saved us from taking the wrong trail and hiking up the wrong canyon twice since there were no trail markers or signs...
Summary: Camera-control is a bit "primitive", just setting for low-light/normal. Has to have perfect light in order to take acceptable quality photos. Missing the ability to manually turn the display off (in order to save as much as possible battery-life).
Summary: Kind of heavy. My biggest gripe is I'd like accessories for carrying it. Even though I wouldn't normally carry it around my neck, I'd like a lanyard so that I could do so on some occasions. Since this review was written they now sell the accessories I was interested in.
Summary: This is a really great GPS. Huge screen, easy to read in daylight, accurate and full-featured. The only downside as I see it is that it's just a bit too big for route-finding usage. If you have a lot of time and want an all-in-one, this is the best you can get.
