Use the 4" sunlight-readable dual-orientation touchscreen of the Garmin Montana 680 Handheld GPS guide you on your next excursion. You can choose between landscape and portrait modes for the best possible view of the map or data you are trying to interpret. Whether you are traveling by foot, boat, or car the free one-year subscription of BirdsEye satellite imagery helps you reach your destination. An included world basemap features shaded relief to help make physical features stand out, and the included camera lets you take your own images. All of these 8 megapixel images are geo-tagged automatically so you will know where they were taken.

This unit utilizes both GPS and GLONASS satellites for quicker signal acquisition so you get a fix on your position approximately 20 times faster than GPS alone. The receiver also can interpret Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) signals so you can receive information from terrestrial antennas even when your view of the sky is obstructed. The WAAS system also provides greater position accuracy overall. HotFix satellite prediction cuts down on initial signal acquisition by approximating their positions.

The unit's built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass shows your heading even while standing still, no matter how it is positioned. It also houses a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude so you will know your distance from sea level. The GPS comes with a rechargeable battery, or you can use AA batteries.

    Montana 680 Handheld GPS is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big screen and GLONASS a big plus Coming from the venerable 60CSx, I bought the Montana 680 for hiking, bicycling and sea kayak expeditions. I have a Nuvi 2689LMT for use in the car. First of all, I ordered and received a unit with one bright pixel. B & H exchanged it for me quickly, and without problems. It is great to deal with a reputable company like B & H. On to the 680 - I got the unit with the camera, not because I expected the camera to be fantastic - it isn't. It's just that there are times when I'm caught without one of my real cameras, usually on my bicycle, and this one comes in handy. Nice is the geotagging feature, which then appear as thumbnails in Basecamp. I do not find it overly bulky or large, but you might if you have small hands. Tip of the day: In order to use the unit connected to a USB power source, select setup, system, interface and choose Garmin Spanner mode. The display: If you are comparing this screen to a tablet or smart phone, then you may find the Montana screen a little disappointing. At 472 x 280 pixels on a 4 display, it has nowhere near the pixel density we've come to expect from those devices. Also, the viewing angle isn't great, i.e. you pretty much have to view the screen straight on for best results. The screen is resistive, not capacitive, hence, it is not multi-touch ; gestures like pinch to zoom, etc. are not supported. On the plus side, it works very well while wearing gloves. The screen is sunlight readable comfortably only if the sun is directly on the screen, so 100% backlighting is what I use most of the time. Lastly, I recommend the use of a Garmin screen protector, as the screen is soft. This does detract from the readibilty of the screen to some degree though. Battery life: As I said, you will have your backlight set to 100% usually. Fortunately, you can set a backlight time-out to anything from 15 seconds to inifinity. There is also a battery saver mode which blanks the display when the backlight shuts off. I find I get about 8 hours on a single charge of the Lithium ion battery with heavy backlight usage. Firmware: The Montana built-in software is highly configurable and flexible through menu picks. That said, there is a learning curve. Maps: I do not recommend ordering the 680t or the 610t which come with pre-loaded 100k topo maps. 100k just doesn't cut it. Save the money and apply it to getting the 24k topos. By the way, do not order the 24k topos on SD card. The maps are locked to the Garmin specific SD card, so you can't transfer the maps to any other SD card. Stupid! Get the DVD instead. 600 vs. 610, 650 vs. 680: The only real difference between the new and old versions is GLONASS (as opposed to glasnost). Well, ok, the 680 has an 8MP camera vs. a 5MP for the 650. I said real difference. The addition of GLONASS means that you get faster acquisition of satellites and better coverage in obstructed areas than with GPS alone. Gripes: Garmin is still tied to the FAT 32 file system. This means that the maximum file size is 4GB. Also, Garmin can't handle an SD card larger than 32GB, i.e. SDXC cards don't work as they are exFAT. I want to put all my topo maps in one image, but can't. Backwards thinking, Garmin. Next, the Montana still has a USB 2.0 interface. Ever hear of USB 3.0 Garmin? Unfortunately, Garmin is ostensibly the only game in town when it comes to ruggedized GPS. Smart phones have nearly destroyed the market, so I don't expect Garmin to come up to date anytime soon. Witness the pricey Garmin Monterra, whichj is still running Android 4.0. Conclusion: The Montana is probably the best way to go for folks who need a waterproof, ruggedized device for a variety of outdoor activities. The 4 screen greatly surpasses the tiny displays on most of the other units. While far from perfect, what real options do you have?
