Montana™ 650 Features:

Now there's one handheld GPS for three very different activities. Whether you're on foot, on the road or on water, the new Montana 650 from Garmin will guide you wherever you go. With a vast 4” sunlight-readable touchscreen that offers crystal clear enhanced colours, dual orientation display and high sensitivity HotFix positioning to track your location, it's easy to see where you are at all times. Both durable and waterproof, Montana 650 is built to withstand the elements.


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 650 is designed for use on boats, as a handheld, off-roading or in your car. Use the optional auto mount with City Navigator mapping for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions. Wherever you think you might take Montana, simply pairing it with your preferred mapping and auto mount will get you there.


Mapping options include City Navigator maps for use in the car, BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, Garmin Topo Pro maps for a day out in the outdoors and BirdsEye Select that lets you download customised sections of premium raster-based maps to your device and integrate them with your maps.


With Montana 650 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. So now your friends can also enjoy your favourite hike or cache - simply press “Send” to transfer your information to other units.


Montana 650 features a one-of-a-kind dual battery system. You'll have the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion pack (included) or traditional AA alkaline batteries - whichever suits you best.


The Montana 650 supports geocaching ( GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but saving time you would otherwise waste manually entering cache details before you set off. Montana 650 stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates or paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. The Montana is the ultimate take-anywhere navigator for the serious adventurer.


Capture locations and memories with Montana 650's 5-megapixel digital camera. Each photo is automatically geotagged with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to navigate back to that exact spot in the future. To keep track of your photos and show their location on a map, simply connect Montana 650 via USB and use Garmin's free BaseCamp software (


Advanced Shortcut Features

Whether it's loading an application, navigating to a waypoint, switching your profile or customizing specific settings to your needs, advanced shortcuts lets you combine these functions to create a custom-tailored, streamlined experience. 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 Customizable Homescreen

Whether you go somewhere often, continually change settings or create shortcuts, Montana's fully customizable 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.

Reorderable Menu Options

Reorder any menu however you like with this new feature, which keeps you from constantly scrolling to the bottom of a long list.

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.

Adaptable Controls

Don't like the way something is set up? No worries. With a tap of a button, you can configure your applications easily and quickly with adaptable controls. Have to mount on the right handle bar? No problem. Montana can accommodate left- or right-handed setups based on the screen orientation.
