Garmin Montana GPS

Most of our Routes are taking us to remote places that require a little hiking and are mainly gravel roads – even abandoned roads. So a “hiking” GPS is more adequate for our needs. When you want a big screen, accuracy and ease of use, the Garmin Montana is one of the best options out there.

This is the largest GPS with the biggest screen from Garmin. It’s also the heaviest and one of the most expensive units out there. The build is rugged and it’s waterproof. The touchscreen is bright and responsive with none of the jumping or lack of movement found on some other screens. It can also be viewed vertically or horizontally like a smartphone. Also derived from smartphones is a virtual QWERTY keyboard so you can make notes. The Montana 600 has a calendar, on which you can store data, and a calculator too.

The interface is relatively easy to use. I didn’t need the manual to find my way around. The large screen means everything stands out and there are no tiny icons to tap. The screens can be customized so the information you require is shown. Montana features a 4-inch, sunlight-readable touchscreen display that offers crystal clear, enhanced colors and high-resolution images. Its easy-to-use interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information.

Mounted with Garmin’s AMPS Rugged Mount

Montana features a bold, color touchscreen, dual-orientation display and includes a 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription. It also supports multiple mapping options like BlueChart® g2 and TOPO U.S. 24K.

Handheld includes 3-axis tilt-compensated compass, barometric altimeter and access to both GPS and GLONASS satellites for improved positioning and typically faster fixes. With Montana, you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. Just press “send” to transfer your information to similar devices and let the games begin.

With its high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS reception, WAAS-enabled receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Montana locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains it. Whether you’re in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, count on Montana to help you find your way when you need it most. Montana has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even while you’re on the move or not holding it level. The barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, or use it to plot barometric pressure over time to help keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

With a one-of-a-kind dual battery system, the 610 gives you the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion pack or traditional AA batteries.
Montana supports paperless geocaching GPX files for straight-to-device uploading of geocaches from Geocaching.com. No more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs, Montana stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions. The track manager feature helps organize and navigate through waypoints/routes/ and track logs (easily start/stop recording tracklogs).

  • 4-inch dual-orientation, glove-friendly touchscreen display
  • Tracks both GPS and GLONASS satellites
  • 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription
  • 3-axis compass with barometric altimeter

ROX Pivoting Bar Risers

When you are traveling off-road standing on the pegs and are on the tall-side, the handle bar is usually too low for your. This is ADV-riding and not Racing, so comfort comes first! One of the most versatile Bar Risers on the market today are the ROX Pivoting Bar Risers (we use the 2” option) – and the “pivoting” is what makes them special.

Rox-01

An absolute must-have in any Adventure Bike

Rox Risers allow you to pivot the handle bar forward and back to fit your preferred riding position, which takes the pressure off your wrists, elbows and shoulders. The beauty of this design is that the adjust-ability is a solution that works for everyone. If you haven’t ridden a bike with elevated bars you may not be aware of how much the upright position relieves strain on your lower back.

These risers were engineered and tested to ensure their strength and durability. Machined from billet 6061 T6 aluminum, the two piece design makes it compatible with a wide array of adventure bikes.
