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.
