Recommended Posts

Does anybody know when Garmin is going to release any new handheld Gpsr for geocaching or improve on any devices thanks?

You do not like the Oregon 7x0 or GPSMAp 66 series? These are both excellent geocaching GPSr.

 

To answer your question, I can only say with absolute certainty that it will be sometime in the future, and not in the past 8^)

 

Only Garmin knows those answers, and they are not tellin'!!!!

It seems like they've historically come out with a newer version of the Oregon series about every 3 years (450 in early 2010, 600 in 2013, 700 in 2016), so I'm guessing (and hoping) that an Oregon 800/850 may not be far off. While I've learned to live with them, the quirks with the 600 have become mildly irritating. I'd upgrade to a 700 if I didn't have a hunch that an 800 could be coming soon. If that turns out to not be the case, I may consider a 700 in about a year.

From what goes around here, the quirks of the 600 are better than those of the 700. What makes you think the 800 will be any better? 😂

I was expecting a new Montana this year, after the new GPSMAP last year. Thought it was next in line.

Do all the Garmin's have all the GNSS generation 2 systems; the GPS, GONASS, Galileo, IRNSS, BDS, etc?

I'm wondering if Garmin isn't semi-retiring the Montana line. I was expecting the 610/680 update to be more in line with the Oregon series with regard to a nice glass capacitive screen. Instead, it was just a minor update from the 600/650, I think to add GLONASS support and update the software user interface a little bit.

It seems that the newer models are heading in that direction. GLONASS has been a part of Garmin units for a while now, and the 66 series introduces support for Galileo and maybe some other systems. That said, GPS alone is good enough, and GPS + GLONASS is, well, more than good enough if the GLONASS satellites are calibrated correctly.

The minor update is what Garmin did with other devices as well - Oregon 200/300/400, minor update 450/550, new model 600. Gpsmap 62, minor update 64, new model 66. So after the minor update 610/650 I was expecting a new, Oregon-style Montana to be released this year. But maybe you’re right and they are retiring the Montana.

They just released the new Etrex 22x and 32x just a few months ago, (EDIT. Also the 64x series) without hardly any fanfare at all.  The 66 series was introduced a year ago. 

 

I think the 22x and 32x now come with routing topo maps standard for free.
