See the Big View
Montana 680 features a 4" outdoor optimised, dual orientation touchscreen display that offers best readability under any light condition. The easy-to-use touch screen user interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Adventurers love the extra-large display of Montana that provides great readability due to big data fields and clearly visible map features. Both durable and water resistant, Montana 680 is built to withstand the elements. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator2.
Take Geotagged Pictures
Capture locations and memories with Montana 680's upgraded 8 megapixel digital camera. Each photo is geotagged automatically with the location of where it was taken, allowing you to navigate back to that exact spot in the future. Snap and view pictures in landscape or portrait orientation. Keep track of your photos and see their locations on a map using BaseCamp™. Insert a microSD™ card for more photo storage or to view pictures from other devices.
Keep Your Fix
With the new high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS receiver, Montana 680 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its location even in thick forest and deep valleys. The advantage is clear — whether you’re under heavy tree cover or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Montana 680 to help you find your way when you need it the most.
With an array of compatible mounts, Montana is designed for use on bicycles, in 4x4s, on boats and as a handheld or for convenient everyday navigation in your car. Use the optional auto mount with City Navigator maps for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or try out the optional rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV.
Montana 680 comes with an 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription for great aerial images to enhance your navigation, in case you want more detailed information adding more maps to Montana is easy1. Load TOPO maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water, or load City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn driving directions. Or, transform paper maps into files you can download to your Montana with Custom Maps.
Navigate with Ease
The new Montana 680 features a Track Manager app that allows you to record, view and analyse your tracks in a very convenient and intuitive way. The handheld has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass which shows your heading even when you’re 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.
Montana 680 comes preloaded with 250,000+ assorted geocaches from geocaching.com and supports paperless geocaching. This allows Montana 680 to store and displays key cache information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs. Once you want to add more caches simply upload the GPX file to your device and keep the hunt going.
With Montana 680 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. Simply press "Send” to transfer your information to other units.
Double Your Power
Montana 680 features the Garmin dual battery system that guarantees a maximum of independence. You’ll have the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack or traditional AA alkaline batteries – whichever suits you best.
