Garmin Montana 650t

 

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...

Garmin Montana 650t Handheld GPS Navigator
