Navigate with Ease
The Montana has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. It also has a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With an array of compatible mounts, Montana 600 is designed for use on boats, bikes, as a handheld, motorbike or quad or in your car. Use the auto mount with City Navigator NT® or Garmin GB Discoverer™maps for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions. Wherever you think you might take Montana, it has the mapping and mounts to get you there.
Mapping options include the City Navigator maps for use in the car, BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, Garmin GB Discoverer™ which provides Ordnance Survey® mapping on your handheld andBirdsEye™ Select that lets you download customised sections of premium raster-based maps to your device and integrate them with your maps.
