It is very well built and bigger than it looks in the pictures, overall 5 3/4" x 3" x 1 1/2", it has a 4" screen, that is overall 3 1/2" x 2", much bigger than the Satmap gps screen, it is the biggest pocket sized gps I could find, which is exactly what I wanted, I find with most gps the screen resolution and detail of maps is great, but to navigate easily you need to see what is around you to get some perspective, by the time you have zoomed out on a smaller screen it all becomes hard to see, the bigger Montana screen really comes into its own here.
I am really pleased with the sensitivity of the receiver! I can switch it on anywhere, indoors or out, and it knows where it is in seconds, compared to my Satmap unit which often takes 3-4 minutes to decide where it is and has to be outside or at least by the window, or worse still my (much) older Garmin unit which has to be waved around in the air outside!
I went for a walk with the Garmin switched on, but left in my coat pocket, I got it out and checked it every 10 minutes or so and was amazed to find it had not lost itself at all, considerably better performance than the Satmap unit it has replaced.
The Montana comes with a respectable and quite useful base map, but as always its the detailed maps where they get you, mine will potentially get used all over the UK, the entire country 1:50000 OS map micro SD card cost me an extra £200-00p.
It can show 3D maps and the screen automatically switches between landscape and portrait depending on how you are holding it, I have bought a suction pad holder to use it as an in car sat nav if I need to.Read more ›
* OS 1:25k walking in the Cotswolds, but with some occasional walking elsewhere.
* Reliable, robust, waterproof
* Long battery life and off the shelf (AAA) backup, to eliminate any battery life anxiety
* Some compatibility with my heavy investment in Memory Map (MM) maps over the years
* Integrated road navigation so I could easily find the start of walks
Wow, it does all of the above and much more, and SO elegantly. Love the screen size, and although it's quite thick in depth, you don't notice it as it fits neatly into your hand (ie within the crux of your hand - a wafer thin unit wouldn't be any more convenient, just lighter!)
Added to the above, it does a whole heap of other things which I hadn't expected:
* Size convenient enough that I'm happy to run with it, and with RAM mounts, I now use for long cycle rides and as a motorbike GPS (waterproof and 22 hours of battery life means you may not need the powered mount)
* 3D compass is amazing and integrated. That's to say you can flip from map to compass, and it will show you exactly the direction to head (usually with GPS, if you've stopped without fixing a direction, when you start again you need to move in any direction in order to orientate yourself)
* Tailor your profile, so you can easily switch between Auto mode (e.g. landscape, turn by turn instructions to find your route start) and Recreational (e.g. portrait, lock screen orientation)
* The camera I thought was an unnecessary feature but I've found it fabulous, and takes great pictures.Read more ›
1. Map rendering is slow. This is not an issue for navigation since it easily keeps up with walking pace. It is irritating if you want to browse a route.
2. You can't lock-out the touchscreen. This means that if you leave it in a rucksak with something rubbing on the screen it will burn thru the battery faster than you want. This is irritating, hence the loss of a *.
