The Garmin Montana 650t is one of three models in Garmin's newest handheld series. With it's huge 4” touchscreen, I had initially thought the Montanas were targeted to the motorized crowd (ATV's, etc.), but after spending over a month with one, I'm...

Large, bright screen ; Extensive customization options ; Garmin’s best dual-use unit ; 5MP geotagging camera ; Li-ion battery (relatively long life and you don't have to open the battery cover to recharge) ; Much quicker access to menu items than on...

Relatively bulky and heavy ; Additional maps and mount required to make best highway use of device ; No carabiner clip

The Montana series has some great features – a larger and somewhat brighter touchscreen that can rotate between portrait and landscape orientations, an interface that makes it much easier to access settings and switch functions, and a dashboard that...

Versatile Garmin GPS for the outdoor lover

The 650t should appeal to people with active lifestyles, as well as those that aspire to have one. The need for additional mounts might be a sticking point for some, but its all-round versatility and solid build make it a good choice if you are looking...

With few real flaws and a bevy of features, this is a fantastic and versatile GPS device

Battery life, meanwhile, is astounding. A single charge will easily get you a full eight-hour day with the GPS running solidly, and in emergencies it will run from three standard AA alkaline cells.

Recommended!

Garmin's latest satnav has a long list of features, but is it worth almost £500?

Garmin's Montana 650t is a high-end outdoor GPS aimed at hikers (trampers, in New Zealand parlance) and off-roaders, sold pre-loaded with topographical maps for New Zealand and Australia.

Everything I expected and more.

 

After owning GPS's from 3 other manufacturers my opinion is the G in GPS stands for GARMIN.

Easy to use, intuitive, menus and architecture. Will easily accept maps and routes from other formats. Bright display, easily read in sunlight, high resolution. Like ability to import other map data and images and place them on layers that can be turne

The instructions for selecting and using the right application for downloading, loading, and managing maps is a bit unclear but once you get into the right application using it is very easy

I have found and used functions not described in the manual, such as personalizing the startup screen, and changing the dashboard status bar (which I am still not sure how I did). I have heard arguments that “I can do the same thing with my Iphone and...

The Montana 650t quickly acquires satellites, is easily customized, very versatile, and its ability to function as wilderness GPS in the highest capability, as well as a car GPS, marine GPS, fitness monitor, geocashing recorder, clock, stopwatch,...

The Montana 650t is a little heavy. It could use a little more in-depth manual
