Garmin Montana 600

Discontinued. Replaced by the Garmin Montana 610 >>

Take it hiking. Take it hunting. Take it on the water. Montana 600 features a bold 4 in. color touchscreen dual orientation display and supports multiple mapping options like BirdsEye™ Satellite ImageryBlueChart® g2 and TOPO U.S. 24K. Montana has key features for the outdoors such as a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass and barometric altimeter. Buy the auto mount and a City Navigator NT® map and it'll give you spoken turn-by-turn driving directions. It's big. It's versatile. It's tough. It earned the name Montana.

See the Big View

Montana 600 features a vast 4 in., sunlight-readable touchscreen display that offers crystal clear enhanced colors and displays high-resolution images. Its easy-to-use interface means you’ll spend more time enjoying the outdoors and less time searching for information. Both durable and waterproof, Montana 600 is built to withstand the elements. Bumps, dust, dirt, humidity and water are no match for this rugged navigator. No matter the setting – on the boat, in the RV or on an ATV – Montana is right at home.

Go Anywhere

With an array of compatible mounts, Montana 600 is designed for use on ATV’s, in boats, as a handheld or in your car as a personal navigator. Use the auto mount with City Navigator maps for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or the rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV. Wherever you think you might take Montana, it has the mapping and mounts to get you there.

Go Everywhere

Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. With its microSD™ card slot, Montana 600 lets you load TOPO 24K and Canada Topo maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). Montana 600 also supports BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, Montana is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

Share Wirelessly

With Montana 600 you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS users. So now your friends also can enjoy your favorite hike or cache – simply press “send” to transfer your information to similar units, and let the games begin.

Keep Your Fix

With its high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Montana 600 locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear — whether you’re in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Montana 600 to help you find your way when you need it the most.

Navigate with Ease

Montana 600 has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

Double Your Power

Montana 600 features a one-of-a-kind dual battery system. You’ll have the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion pack or traditional AA alkaline batteries – whichever suits your needs better.

Find Fun

Montana 600 supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. Visit OpenCaching.com to start your geocaching adventure. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Montana 600 stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches.

Garmin Montana 600 shortcut features

Advanced Shortcut Features

Whether it’s loading an application, navigating to a waypoint, switching your profile or customizing specific settings to your needs, advanced shortcuts lets you combine these functions to create a custom-tailored, streamlined experience. Each Montana comes with pre-loaded shortcuts – Go Home, Track Log On/Off and Stop Navigation – to get you started.

Garmin Montana 600 profiles

Smarter Profiles

SnowflakesRecommendations for using a Montana GPS in cold weather

• Montana operating temperature range is from -4ºF to 158ºF (-20ºC to 70ºC)
• Prolonged exposure to low temperatures can cause plastic parts to become rigid and prone to damage
• Remove the GPS unit from the mount and keep it in a pocket or warm location in temperatures below -4ºF (-20ºC)
• To improve cold weather screen performance, use a powered mount and keep the Backlight on continuously (select Setup, Display, Backlight Timeout, Stays On)
• The Lithium-ion battery pack will not charge below 32ºF (0ºC). When the GPS is in a powered mount at temperatures below 32ºF, the mount will power the unit but will not charge the Lithium-ion battery. Keep a set of AA size Lithium batteries in a warm location for emergencies or for use when the GPS is not in a powered mount.
• Avoid sudden temperature changes caused by bringing an extremely cold unit into a heated area.  Repeated thermal shock can warp and damage the GPS.
