Features

Mapping

Pre-loaded with Garmin's European Recreational Map 1:100.000 Scale

N.B. This map does not include any routing data and is unable to provide turn-by turn road navigation directions.

New Track Manager

The new Track Manager allows you to organise and navigate through waypoints, routes and track logs with ease and also provides great control over start/stop track recording.

8 Megapixel Camera

Includes an 8 Megapixel digital camera which allows you to take images in landscape and portrait orientation. Each photo is geotagged automatically with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to navigate to that exact spot in the future.

Each Montana comes with pre-loaded shortcuts – Go Home, Track Log On/Off and Stop Navigation – to get you started.

More Dashboards in More Places

With 1 touch of the power button, you can pull up a multi-orientation dashboard from anywhere – your map, home screen, compass, trip computer, status page and more – so you can create more dashboards in more places.

Fully Customisable Homescreen

Whether you go somewhere often, continually change settings or create shortcuts, Montana’s fully customisable home screen allows you to bring up to 16 items from "Where To?," "Setup" and "Shortcuts" to your home screen so you can easily access them without having to click between screens.

Smarter Profiles

Montana’s smarter profiles feature remembers which profile you were using, based on the mount, so when you’re off-roading or trying to find a bike shop, it will put you in the right frame of mind so you can get you on your way quickly.

FAQs

1. What are each of the map options available with this unit?

– With Europe TOPO ACTIVE Mapping

Garmin TOPO ACTIVE mapping is a proper digital map, as you zoom in you get more information and as you zoom out you get less. BUT, it is not an Ordnance Survey map, therefore it does not differentiate between Bridleways and Footpaths, it just marks them as paths.

It covers 47 European countries, compiled using the community-generated OpenStreetMap (OSM) database. Coverage for: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia (Kaliningrad only), San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the Vatican City.

– With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the GPS Training we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

– With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:25k

This is full GB at 1:50k, 1:50k and 1:250k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit. As you zoom in and out you pass through each of these three map sets.
