Garmin’s Montana™

For all you situational awareness guys – you know who you are! Garmin, a global leader in GPS technology has introduced a new handheld receiver Montana™. Montana™ is offered in a variety of configurations that include 5 mp camera. It is remarkably iPhone-like offering a touchscreen that will display in portrait or landscape modes. Montana™ supports satellite imagery as well as 24K or 100K Topo, Turn-By-Turn and Voice. The receiver is also waterproof and shock proof. It would not surprise me to see Garmin add WiFi or 3G support in future offerings. The Montana™ is available as 600, 650, 650t models starting at around $540-$700 depending on your configuration.
