Hello Bertrand

So if I have geo tagged photos on the GPS the photos will show on the map?

A bit like Google Maps with the photo option on?

oh and when will the 600 cost £300?

You can also archive another 2000 tracks
I take it the track is auto-saved after the 10k points?


Cheers,
John

I have the unit in my hot little hand now and am working my way through it. Coming from the 276c, its not that "different", but BETTER and having stuffed a 16gb SDCard into it I can have maps coming out of my ears!

I also got the AMPS rugged mount. Slightly disappointing to see that the power cable is a permanent mount to it... I now have to buy another mount for the green line bike... AND the car....
I found a US seller on ebay that does the RAM stuff at the cheaper US prices, but also charges very cheap mailing rates.

Cheers,
John

More Montana

Did you know:

On your Montana select the following Setup features: Setup->System->Interface->Garmin Spanner, you will be able to plug in the USB cable and still manipulate the Montana features/functions via the screen.

Smile spanner mode

Best use for that is when 62S or Montana is plugged into notebook running Nroute
thereby enabling the gps to display on moving map on large screen (in 4x4 !)

Thanks for the info Bertrand... DL proceeding...

I had reason to call Garmin support last week. Helpful as ever, but unable to help me really.
I use the Montana in the car/bike and on the lane bike.
When traveling to see a friend in northern France it was unable to calculate a route longer than 500kms unless I used toll roads so I had to travel until I was <500k from the destination before it would calculate the route without "truncation"

Its down to limited memory available for the routing function... apparently...
Even my 276c could cope with that route without truncation
. I would be interested to see if you get the same result, if you have the same map - CNEU2012.3. Routing options set to min.time. Avoids=uturn/tolls/unpaved/carpool/ferries. Route from Abjat-sur-Bandiat to Walschbronn - both in FR.

Cheers,
John
