4 reviews for Garmin Montana 700

  1. 5 out of 5

    Graham Jones (verified owner)

    This is an initial review as I have only recently bought this unit. I have used it in test mode several times but once on a five mile country walk in persistent heavy drizzle using a planned route transferred from my PC. It responded very quickly to changes of location as I recorded the track and entered waypoints.
    It is an expensive GPS true, and I should say that it is a heavy piece of kit compared with other units I have owned, but the screen size and backlight make it very easy to see and use. The rugged rubberised exterior gives a reassuring solid feel that should stand much punishment.
    Outdoor GPS Shop/GPS Training set up the unit with their preferred choices prior to shipping it to me and installed the OS 1:50000 maps that I purchased and it arrived with detailed notes for initial use. Excellent service and their training videos for this unit are very simple, short and easy to assimilate.
    I have yet to find any drawbacks ( the weight possibly?) with the unit but some kind of carabiner to attach it to my backpack or belt would be a good idea. I don’t see a suitable one yet.
    Menu choices are extensive and easy to navigate making the unit very intuitive to use form the outset.

    I’m very pleased with the Outdoor shop and my new Garmin Montana 700. As promised, the shop sent the unit the same day (– Royal mail took an extra day to deliver it however – the special delivery service is running a bit slower at present). I’ve been using a Montana 600 for many years so am familiar with the controls and Basecamp on PC. I’m very pleased with it. It is larger and a bit heavier than the 600 but not excessive and I chose it partly as it has the excellent 5inch screen. It looks and feels rugged and well made, a premium product. The outdoor shop set up the options pre-despatch, which worked well and is well worthwhile, especially for anyone unfamiliar with such devices – my thanks to the shop experts. It also ensures that the unit is in full working order. The Outdoor shop sent several pages of instructions which are also very clear and helpful, much better than the Garmin start-up guide. The full manual can be downloaded from Garmin. Like the previous units, there is no case so I got one that fits well from a local luggage shop. The built in topo maps look nice and are up to date with my local new roads etc. but for outdoors my preference is OS. I have transferred the micro SD card from my 600 and the OS 1:50k works fine – this slows the scrolling response down a bit, looks good though. The battery has plenty of capacity for my purposes, but note that to use the 3xAA facility an adaptor is needed. I’ve used it a few times outdoors and it works perfectly, the map display, track recording and trip details page all work well and look great, just need a bit of practice and experimentation. It interfaces with Basecamp and using the facilities for wifi / Bluetooth plus apps Garmin express, connect and explore. It is possible to move a recorded track from the unit via explore to Basecamp on your PC without plugging it in, but its still easier to simply plug in the USB lead and move track files around as convenient.
