Garmin Montana 610T?Contributors to this thread:
I'm in the market for a new GPS. I like the bigger screen of the Garmin Montana610T for my aging eyes. I found some reviews but not many.
I mainly looking to use it for elk hunting.
What's your opinion of the 610T? Good, bad or ???
I really like mine hunt. I have no complaints. Fits great in the back pocket and big enough screen for aging eyes.
Check battery life. My Oregon eats them up in a day and a half.
I think the specs on the battery life is 16 hours on the lithium that it comes with.
What are other gps unit getting for battery life?
I love the fact you can recharge it in the truck or put AAA batteries in if the lithium dies. Good options to have.
I've used a Montana since they came out. Works fine, way more features that I'll ever use. Tracking will eat batteries in a day but I rarely use that. Been testing the phone for a cpl weeks now. It'll go thru a charge in a day of tracking as well.
I have a Montana 650T, had it since they came out, great gps
I have a brand new never been used Oregon I would sale. I bought it in a panic when I thought my 62 t was lost forever.. Thank God I am just forgetful and remembered where I put it. Lots of years worth of data on it. Make me an offer.
Here's a suggestion...
Back up that gps data.
Had mine for a year now. Got the onX hunt chips for use in the states I hunt. Love it. Fast acquisition even under tree cover. Battery life reasonable. Couldn't be happier. I back that up with my onX hunt app on my phone. Bomb proof combination.
