Summary: Wow. this GPS has everything. I use it mostly for Geocaching and it more than does the job. Easy to use functions, and great display - even in bright sunlight. Best feature is the ability to use AA batteries when the lithium rechargeable gives up. Long life on the lithium too.
Summary: I use it all the time! It has obscure landmarks I didn't think would be on there but they were, I didn't have to enter it in myself! Love this! I did drop it by accident on a rock and the screen cracked. Garmin replaced the screen but it cost me about $180 to have them replace it. Not happy about that part but I'm extremely happy with the unit itself!
Summary: I bought this product for hunting, hiking, and driving. I love everything about this GPS. It takes pictures that look good. It is worth it to save up a little extra if you are in the outdoors a lot. Thank you so much!!!!! Fast shipping!
Summary: This is a great product for Geocaching but there certainly is a learning curve. The manual is almost useless in telling how to do things but once you figure out the function you want it does a beautiful job of display.
Summary: This is one of the best GPS devices I've used. I wish some of the features could be incorporated into my smaller cycling computers from Garmin. I'm sure the will be some day. Also wish Garmin would make the Montana compatible with Garmin Connect.
Pros: Big screen, sturdy build, touch screen works great, easy navigable menus, place to connect a lanyard, good battery life and ability to use regular easily obtainable AA batteries.
Cons: Big but so what. It fit's in your hand great and the weight isn't going to kill you. Might even save your life.
Summary: Garmin has gone over the top with this unit. I have used it for city driving, hiking, and geocaching. The touch screen is easy to use and once you have the icons setup for your needs it is even easier. I have a GPSMap62s that I have used for the last several years and it is still a great unit. The Montana 650t is much larger, however the increase in screen size was worth the price. The 62s on average would get me to within 10ft of a geocache, the 650t does just as well.
Summary: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our Montana. It took a bit to get used to but I really like how fast it locks in to the satellites and love the fact that it has the rechargeable battery pack. Garmin is the ONLY way to go when it comes to a handheld GPSr!!!
Summary: My husband is going to Colorado for an Elk hunting trip in the mountains. He had a Garmin before and it was over 12 years old and just quit working. He did alot of research before picking this one. He loves it and uses it all the time. He has now gotten into Geocaching and we take our granddaughters with us and he lets them look at the screen and determine which way to go.
Summary: I bought this item for the long battery life - and had to purchase the North America Streets package to use it. This is NOT a beginner's GPS. It has terrific features, while lacking others - such as turn notifications. This is NOT your "point & shoot" GPS. Plan on spending days learning how to really use it. However, the ability to use it for so many applications, and have the option to use AA batteries at will, make this a unique must have.
