The Garmin 650t is a great device.

  • 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. This machine is a huge jump in technical capability from my previous machine which was a Garmin Etrex C. I love the fact that there is only one button on the Montana and that is the On\Off button.

solid GPS unit

  • 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.

I like it but..

BackPacker, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: A week after purchase I headed into the backcountry. It performed as expected, and I was pleased with the battery life. The unit is a bit bulky making it a little difficult to find a way to pack it, and have it accessible. The camera is convenient, but again the size of the unit made accessibility difficult. The documentation for the unit is useless, and that is being kind. You basically have to figure out how to use the unit by trial and error.

  • Summary: after looking for a gps I wanted one that contained topo maps . this unit fits the bill. I haven't mastered all of the features yet and there are a lot of them. priced on the high side this unit appears to be well made and durable. I like it.

  • 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.

Garmin Montana 650t GPS

Shroomman, REI
25 April 2013
  • 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 and cairns were very scarce. There are many options that I did not use due to my lack of understanding all this product can do.
  • Pros: Durable, Waterproof
  • Cons: Poor battery life

A bit heavy, but it was anticipated/accepted

Ole Sandem, Amazon
2 April 2013
  • 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). As it is, it turns itself off after a preset duration only, wasting valuable energy when I just need to have a short glimpse of the compass or the map ! Nice big screen.

Great except documentation.

Tom in Montana, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: This product works great except many features are not documented in the online detailed documentation. I use this GPS for hunting and horseback riding in areas I am not familiar with and load a 24k Garmin map or a hunting map made by huntinggpsmaps.com. The documentation in this area is weak or non existent. I use a 796 GPS for aviation and it has the same problems. Garmin should fire their entire documentation department.
