The Garmin Montana series is a go-to for outdoor explorers, and the 650 takes everything that's made the 600 so popular, and adds a 5 megapixel camera. It takes geostamped pictures, enabling you to find precisely where images were taken, whether they were taken by you or a friend.

You can share waypoints and images wirelessly with users of compatible Garmin GPS units. Plus, it has the same shock and water resistant body, and 4 inch color screen. It's everything you need to get the most out of your next adventure. Tucked into the durable body is a large 4 inch, glove friendly, backlit color screen, which is easily visible in both low and high light. In addition to the included worldwide basemap, the Montana 650 can be loaded with TOPO 100k maps, BlueChart marine maps, CityNavigator maps, and Custom Maps via the MicroSD port.

Waypoints can be selected off of the mapping feature, or by importing them wirelessly from compatible devices. It's easy to save, modify, and index your routes for future trips. Your waypoints and routes can be shared wirelessly with other users of compatible Garmin GPS devices. By downloading a geocaching .

And you're able to select the profile of your trip, which helps you to organize your information between recreation, driving, boating, and training. The 5 megapixel camera not only takes high quality pictures, but it geostamps them, enabling you to find the precise location that the picture was taken.
