Or, transform paper maps into files you can download to your Montana with Custom Maps.
Navigate with Ease
The new Montana 680 features a Track Manager app that allows you to record, view and analyse your tracks in a very convenient and intuitive way. The handheld has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass which shows your heading even when you’re still, without holding it level. It also has a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
Montana 680 comes preloaded with 250,000+ assorted geocaches from geocaching.com and supports paperless geocaching. This allows Montana 680 to store and displays key cache information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs. Once you want to add more caches simply upload the GPX file to your device and keep the hunt going.
With Montana 680 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. Simply press “Send” to transfer your information to other units.
Double Your Power
Montana 680 features the Garmin dual battery system that guarantees a maximum of independence. You’ll have the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack or traditional AA alkaline batteries – whichever suits you best.

Reorderable Menu Options
Reorder any menu however you like with this new feature, which keeps you from constantly scrolling to the bottom of a long list.
Montana’s smarter profiles feature remembers which profile you were using, based on the mount, so when you’re off-roading or trying to find a bike shop, it will put you in the right frame of mind so you can get you on your way quickly.
Don’t like the way something is set up? No worries. With a tap of a button, you can configure your applications easily and quickly with adaptable controls. Have to mount on the right handle bar? No problem. Montana can accommodate left- or right-handed setups based on the screen orientation.
