    Garmin Montana 650t GPS is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful and Intuitive. I did many 14ers and this device helps you to not get lost. Easy to read maps. Capability to retrace steps. It has capability to direct you to a waypoint or to a place where you took a photo (e.g. direct me back to the trailhead or the mine at 12,000 ft). The accuracy is spot on, and I was deep in the back country doing 14ers. It locks on to 25 satellites and knows where you are and your elevation. The day I hiked mount sherman it was snowing hard and very little visibility, but no trouble finding the peak with this device. By the way, it took great pictures too. 5 MP pics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. This is my first GPS. I bought it for use on my Dual Sport motorcycle based upon satellite reception, accuracy, and weather resistance. Being my first GPS, I spent a fair amount of time getting my computer loaded with the appropriate programs. After that, I watched a few of the BaseCamp videos on how to create a route and found everything to be easy and intuitive from thereon. I have taken it out in the car a couple of times to test it out and found it to be very accurate and easy to use. The battery lasts very long but I will ultimately get the rugged mount with power for the motorcycle. I believe the 650t will fit my purpose well and would recommend it anyone looking for a multipurpose GPS unit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product saved us!! This has been a great product so far. I have only been able to take it on a week long backpacking trip into the Dark Canyon Wilderness in SE Utah but it was a gem to have along. It saved us from taking the wrong trail and hiking up the wrong canyon twice since there were no trail markers or signs and cairns were very scarce. There are many options that I did not use due to my lack of understanding all this product can do. I purchased it with very little time to figure out all the bells and whistles before the trip but the basics were enough for me to highly recommend it to others that have a need for a hand held GPS unit. The only drawback for me was the poor battery life. I used it very minimally on the trip....basically to cross reference where we were on a Trails Illustrated map and after 6 days the battery life was down to under 10% left. I would have enjoyed playing around with it more while I was out there but didn't trust that I would have enough battery in case of a true emergency and need for it's uses. I did have extra batteries to install if needed but it would be nice if the NiCad battery that it comes with would hold a charge for longer. Other than was awesome!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this GPS I have never owned a GPS until I found this little gem. I have used the 650t on many hikes, tracking and recording ATV trails, checking speeds of ATVs on trails, measuring speed on zip lines and plotting height and elevations of current and upcoming zip lines. I also use this on our fishing trips around this great island. This GPS has done everything we have asked of it and more. I think this is a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing This is the best GPS I have ever owned, I think this is the 5th one. The screen is bright clear and easy to use, it works fast without delay. I use a carabineer to clip it to my backpack and set it on top over my right shoulder, out of the way but very easy to grab. The Garmin maps sold separately are a large plus when hiking, to show the trails.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMIGOD! LOVE IT!!! This is "his" wife. He has been singing the praises of this unit since he opened the box. This is his third gps used for hunting and fishing. He loves this one with all caps. Every time he uses it he comes home happy with new praises. BTW- he also bought the marine mount which uses his electrical power vs supporting the energizer battery company. He loves that feature too. Overall, he could not be happier.
