Garmin launches cycling and walking GPS

New flagship all-weather GPS with touchscreen

Navigation and mapping experts Garmin has launched their most advanced handheld GPS device to date – the all weather Montana 650t, part of the Montana series

Announced at their press event in Austria, the Montana range is the new flagship handheld model, usurping the Oregon's place at the top. The device is a rugged multi-purpose touchscreen device aimed at the adventure/lifestyle market.

“We now have one device to fulfill all of your rugged GPS needs. From navigating waterways in your boat and traversing the back country in your ATV, to hiking the Austrian Alps” announced Dan Bartel from Garmin.

The tactile device sports a duel orientation 4 inch screen and numerous mapping and navigation configurations - accessed via user profiles – such as 'geocaching' (with a compass widget) and 'automotive' (for turn by turn driving directions).

Waterproof to the IPX7 standard, the 610 sets its sights just as much on the marine based user as it does the more traditional trek, hike, and road user markets, siting its dedicated cartography and raster maps as a major USP. The new device supports direct integration with the brand's OpenCaching.com geo-caching site as well as off road trail directions (via optional maps), the top of the range models also sporting a 5 megapixel camera for geotagged photos of your adventure.

Garmin Montana 650t launch date: mid June,
Garmin Montana 650t price: Around £499
