On road, off road, anywhere you need accurate full-colour mapping, the Montana™ 600 won't let you down.
The Garmin Montana™ 600 GPS with Full GB Mapping
is a rugged, waterproof GPS unit with a large 4", anti-glare, full colour touchscreen.
Comes with GB Discoverer 1:50K OS Mapping for the whole of Great Britain (worth £200 when sold separately) - all of GB's OS Landranger maps on a micro SD card in one portable unit. Just plug in the included micro SD card and you're ready to go! The intuitive user dashboard allows you to easily arrange your files and put all the features you use most often, close to hand.
What sets the Montana™ 600 GPS apart is it's tough design, touch screen, and easy to use interface. A 3-axis tilt-compensated compass allows you to get an accurate reading without having to move about or hold the GPS level (no more striding about hunched over a tiny screen here!), and accurate barometric measurements give you a firm fix on altitude too. The large screen means it can also be used in the car as a driving GPS (drivers maps required, sold separately)
The Montana™ 600 accepts GPX files for Geocaching - no need to enter co-ordinates or carry sheets of paper - and can transfer files wirelessly with other compatible units.
A dual-battery system allows you to use either the rechargeable Lithium-ion battery or standard Alkaline AA's.

A nice bit of kit. feels rugged in the hand, has a nice large screen and the menus are easy to follow.
The basecamp map is basic so does require the OS bundle or alternative.
I did have a need to call Garmin support and found them very easy to deal with and sorted my problem out very quickly and profesionally.
