    Item # 862339

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 65.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    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.

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Garmin Monterra GPS is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Ready for prime time Pros - Lots of potential with Android. File manager, online updates from the device. All your favorite android phone functions. Cons - Big one, You get to pay to be a beta tester. Garmin apps crash. The garmin compass software causes the compass to be off by 60deg and it drifts. This means no good heading info when hiking. One software update so far but it made the compass worse. You can add a third party compass from the play store but it's not integrated with the Garmin stuff. I have a Montana and it worked much better initially and all the software improved with updates. It was usable when I first got it. As it stands now, I would not go into the woods and depend on the Monterra to get me out. If you don't want to be a beta tester don't buy it. I will probably continue to mess with it because of my inner geek, but if the software doesn't get much better by spring when I start hiking again, I will not be very happy.
