    I have used several different brands of GPS devices but found that Garmin works the best and I can even say it is my favorite of all the GPS brands.

    I personally don’t do a lot of off road traveling and unfortunately don’t venture out of my neck of the woods very often so a cell phone for directions has been my friend but If I was to travel more often why would I want to get a Garmin GPS over just using my Cell Phones Google Map GPS?

      Hi Salvatore and thanks for the comment. You are right that for everyday use a smartphone GPS apps is enough to not get lost in the unknown city blocks. As soon as you are about to go for wild adventure, my advice thinks about standalone handheld GPS device. Garmin is one of the best choices.

    I was searching for a GPS,  because me and my husband have been wanting to go hiking. but I am afraid that the GPS on our cell phones may not work and I don’t want to get lost ever, especially while hiking in a place I have never been to.  I personally like the Garmin Montana 610 because it holds your position and it fits my budget.

    Thanks for helping find the right GPS.

      You are right Dora that phone is not the best choice for GPS navigation in outdoors. Dedicated GPS device like Garmin Montana 610 is a must-have item in your backpack.

    I am looking for a good navigation system and came across your review here. I feel comfortable making a sound decision about which of the Garmin brands to use. I’m going to go with the Garmin Montana 650t and since Amzon has the best price and the highest rating it only helped me feel confident that I am purchasing the right navigation tool. Thanks for making my research of this product easier to navigate through.

      Hello Jamie and thanks for stopping by. You are right that not so easy to choose the right handheld GPS device. The market is full of offers and cheap Made in China items promises much. Garmin is the solid brand with real customers help. Do not fall into the empty promises better choose verified values.

    I liked to know about those devices, both look with great functioning for the purpose they were made. It was a surprise to know those are helpful to navigate in rivers or lakes, are they also useful to navigate in the sea?

    For me it has been okay my GPS from my Samsung cell phone, I don’t use to travel so much, when I do… I am not the driver 😉 as you said nothing is perfect and each one is free to select which device to use.

    Thank for making the review about those different Garmin Montana and share with us, nice trip 😊

      Thank you, Maria, for stopping by. You are right that not every people needs a standalone GPS device and a default smartphone Google Maps or iMaps apps are enough to not lost in woods or find the right address in the city. 

      Others need a real and durable navigation tool to be sure that it works in extreme situations. Garmin Montana, 6xx series devices, are on the top and are worth every penny.

    Garmin Montana 600 vs 650 is a wonderful article.

     I love the way these two are very high-tech and can pinpoint your position. I also like the fact that they have technology in them to where they can combine  GLONASS and with our global positioning satellites to better pinpoint and accurately your position. I really love my Garmin 680 it has to be the best price of equipment I own.

    I really appreciate this article it was so informative. 

    Thank you very much for all the information.

      Hi Quinn and thank you for your comment. You are right that an extra Glonass receiver allows a chance for better reception and quicker signal response time. I hope that the European Galileo SatNav system will join the company shortly.
