The models Montana 610/680/680t support the Russian GLONASS satellites

Very rugged, portable, multi-functional GPS devices with extra large color display. Highly suited as hand held devices and as navigation devices in vehicles. Fast switching between different user interfaces and operation modes through adjustable profiles, shortcuts and dashboards. Rich feature set and very easy to use. Touch screen based user interface. All three models support the U.S. GPS and the Russian GLONASS satellites. The Montana 680t comes with pre-installed recreational map of Europe.

The devices of the GARMIN Montana 610/680/680t series are equipped with an integrated base map, an electronic compass, a barometrical altimeter, a slot for an uSD memory card, an USB connector plus connectors for external power supply, external GPS antenna and headphones. They adapt the display to the current orientation. Simply rotate the device to change from landscape to portrait mode and vice-a-versa. The Montanas support autorouting (optional map required) and wireless data exchange with compatible devices. These devices are suitable for outdoor activities (hiking, biking etc.) and thanks to their voice guidance also for navigation in vehicles (optional car mounting kit required for voice guidance). In addition, there is a marine mode for navigation on boats. They provide an easy to use touch screen and a graphical interface in various languages plus a very sensitive GPS antenna. There are various ways to configure the display. You may create shortcuts to applications and functions on three pages. There are also different dashboards with preset data fields to be placed on the application pages. The Montana devices are powered either by a rechargeable battery (included, lasts for up to 16 hours), three standard AA batteries (last for up to 22 hours) or by an external 12V source. These devices can not only receive the signals of the U.S. GPS satellites, but also of the Russian GLONASS satellites. This provides improved accuracy of the position indication, particularly under difficult conditions such as in cities with tall buildings, in narrow valleys, near steep cliffs and in dens forests. This is especially helpful when searching for geocaches.

All three models provide 2.7 GB memory for user data and additional maps. The models Montana 680 and 680t are additionally equipped with a 8 megapixel built-in camera which automatically stores positional information about the images taken (geo tags).

Main pages of the Montana 610/680/680t:

Note: The Montana 610/680/680t adapts the display to the current orientation of the device: It may show every page either in landscape or portrait format. You may lock the orientation if you prefer. Many of the pages are configurable, the pictures shown are just examples. For the data fields, there is a choice of 76 different values, see selection.

The two images below show the display of the Montana 610/680/680t in true resolution (272x480 pixels). This does not necessarily mean that the display is shown it its true size (51x89 mm). The actual size of these images depends on the properties of your display. All following images have been reduced to improve the appearance of this document.
