Now there’s one handheld GPS for many different activities. Whether you're on foot, on the road or on water, the new Montana 650 from Garmin will guide you wherever you go. With a vast 4” sunlight-readable touchscreen that offers crystal clear enhanced colours, dual orientation display and high sensitivity HotFix® positioning to track your location, it’s easy to see where you are at all times. Both durable and waterproof, Montana 650 is built to withstand the elements.
Navigate with Ease
The Montana has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. It also has a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
It's also preloaded with worldwide basemap with shaded relief.
Take Geotagged pictures
Capture locations and memories with Montana 650’s 5-megapixel digital camera. Each photo is automatically geotagged with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to navigate back to that exact spot in the future. To keep track of your photos and show their location on a map, simply connect Montana 650 via USB and use Garmin’s free BaseCamp™ software to download the photo's to your PC. You can also use BaseCamp to upload them to your favourite photo sharing website.
With an array of compatible mounts, Montana 650 is designed for use on boats, bikes, as a handheld, motorbike or quad or in your car. Use the auto mount with City Navigator NT® or Garmin GB Discoverer™ maps for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions. Wherever you think you might take Montana, it has the mapping and mounts to get you there.
Mapping options include the City Navigator maps for use in the car, BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, Garmin GB Discoverer™ which provides Ordnance Survey® mapping on your handheld and BirdsEye™ Select that lets you download customised sections of premium raster-based maps to your device and integrate them with your maps. Montana is also compatible with Custom Maps which transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
You can even display and enter coordinates in British Grid format, the grid used on Ordnance Survey maps.
