+Gob-ler Posted July 11, 2011 Share Posted July 11, 2011 Sunday I spent part of the afternoon doing some geocaches with the new Montana. A few observations. 1. The screen is really great! I can actually see this one. 2. The GPS seems to be really stable. No jumping around as you approach the cache location and accuracy is as good or better than any GPS I have used to date (60csx, Oregon 450t, Colorado, PN40) 3. Did I mention the screen. I am impressed! 4. Maps - I loaded up CN NT and downloaded some Birdseye Satellite views and they really show a great improvement on that new screen. 5. I did have one slight issue, on one of the go to sequences it listed the distance to the cache as 1,946.7 miles, but that was wrong. It still took me there but the distance to number was wacky. It did not happen again, but something to watch for. 6. The tracks seem to be very smooth both for driving and walking. My compass did calibrate successfully to completion and I had no POI proximity issues. I used the Garmin GPS Export GSAK Macro and had no difficulty loading just over 5000 caches. Many of the functions are quite intuitive. It appears that the Garmin User Interface is the best yet. Quote Link to comment
