A rugged and versatile design for the great outdoors is expected to set apart Garmin’s Montana from other handheld GPS devices.
In addition to being fully waterproof to withstand the mud and grit of the outback, the Montana has the option of 16-hours operability from the included lithium ion battery or 22-hours from three AA batteries to ensure that the device is powered no matter how remote or long the user stays out.
“Montana was designed with the ‘get dirty, go hard then go home’ crowd in mind, who are always after an adventure,” Garmin Australasia national sales manager, Ian Edwards, said.
“From navigating waterways in your boat and traversing national parks in your four wheel drive, to hiking and even receiving spoken turn-by-turn directions on the way to the football field, Montana will take you anywhere and everywhere.”
The device is preloaded with TOPO Australia and New Zealand mapping, which means that routable road content and turn-by-turn driving instructions are directly available directly, whether the user is in the bush or the city.
The Montana also supports Garmin’s detailed marine charts, BirdsEye Satellite Imager and is capable of elevation and route profiling thanks to a built-in barometric altimeter.
A responsive four-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera, several mounting and battery options, dual orientation and extensive screen layout options round out the features of the device.
