Plan on buying upgrades and spending time learning how to maximize use to you.
13 February 2015
Summary: Great little waterproof GPS. I installed a mount on my snowmobile and plan to do the same in my Wrangler. I wish it came with the city maps as well as the TOPO. The TOPO seems fine but other than tracking my own trails and seeing where i am I have not found much use for it.
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 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.
Summary: Overall rating between good and excellent. Current location compared to the map appeared to be off by 50-75'. But it was consistent. Camera pics are great. I like the bells and whistles that provide information about your journey like speed, distance, heading..
