    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Garmin Montana 600 GPS is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had it a year and still love it! I have had this GPS for a little over a year now and I still love it. I bought this model because a friend had the 650T and I wasn't a fan of the camera, it seemed to take low quality pictures, and I wanted to 24K topo map not the 100k. I am very pleased with my purchase still. I typically use the Montana 600 for geocaching or hiking on the weekends, so I would say I am a casual user, however because I have had it for some time now I have gotten a good amount of use out of it. I have had two instances where I went to zoom in on a spot and all of a sudden it was showing me in the middle of the ocean, but all I had to do was zoom out to fix it and once I zoomed back in it was fine again. The touchscreen feature is great and the GPS functions are very intuitive, I've never had to read the manual once. It is a little bulky, but it fits nicely in my hand. The screen display is nice and bright even in the sun when wearing sunglasses and the battery lasts a good long time, I've never seen it drop below 40% and sometimes I am out for 8 or 9 hours at a time with the backlight at 100% the whole time. Overall I would buy this product again, and I would recommend it to a friend in a heartbeat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice so far I use this as a dual purpose GPS and it is solid. First, it's mounted to my motorcycle and handles typical road navigation with aplomb. Second, I use topo maps for hiking (and also offroad moto) and it's been stellar so far. Customizing it with profiles was a bit tricky, but now I can switch between uses with 1-button ease. Really the only downside is that I am so used to working with Google Maps on my iPhone (which is a good backup but not nearly as rugged). I miss the pinch/zoom and other touch features that most smart phones have. Otherwise, the Montana has been perfect so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lack of support 4th Garmin product and this is the best yet. I use it as a big print alternative to tiny bike computers.
