Positive Comments

Saves a lot of Time

Most reviewers were well-pleased with their purchase of the Garmin Montana 650t handheld GPS. One reviewer, who gave the locating and mapping device a five-star rating, said that the Montana was the best GPS he had ever owned. He said that by owning the device, he saved a lot of time while on the trail or in traffic.

If you Like to Hike, it's Well Worth the Investment

Another 5-star reviewer said she was very happy with all the features of the Garmin Montana 650t handheld GPS. Although she thought it was a bit high-priced, she did state that if you liked to hike it was well worth the investment.

A Much Easier to Read Touchscreen

Still yet another reviewer who gave the Garmin Montana 650t handheld GPS high marks liked the touchscreen on the device, which was much easier to read than previous Garmin units. He said he especially liked the dual battery option, which enables you to use a rechargeable battery or alkaline AA batteries. He said, overall, that the Garmin Montana 650t handheld GPS was a superlative product.

Some Negative Remarks

One reviewer was not quite so happy as the previous reviewers with her Garmin. She said that she didn't like having to purchase a mount for her dash as well as mapping for using the Garmin on the roadway. Another reviewer expressed the same sentiment, saying that downloading the maps was also difficult.

The Overall View

When all was said and done though, most reviewers were more than happy with their Garmin Montana 650t handheld GPS and gave the unit a 5-star rating. Those users who were less than pleased with their Garmin did not like having to buy additional mapping software or the extra mounts offered for the device. A few commenters expressed that downloading the maps was somewhat of a challenge as well.
