Garmin Montana 650t
The Garmin Montana 650t is the top of the range, for handheld geocaching GPS receivers. With a large, tough, 100mm, sunlight readable, colour touchscreen, built in basemap, altimeter and 3-axis electronic compass this unit ticks all the boxes. The built-in 5 megapixel camera lets you take photos, geotag them, and navigate to and from them.
It features a microSD card slot, image viewer and the ability to send and receive geocaches, tracks, waypoints and routes wirelessly to other Garmin units. Preloaded with Australian and New Zealand topographic maps, and the ability to render a 3-D view means you will have all the mapping you need for your serious cache hunts. You can even purchase the City Navigator maps and turn this unit into a fully fledged automotive GPS.
Waterproof and durable, the Oregon is built to withstand the water, dust, dirt and rough treatment that goes along with some of the best geocaching adventures.
With a unique dual battery system, you can power the Montana either from its rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, or with AA batteries. This combination gives you the best of both worlds, convenience, flexibility and a low cost rechargeable option.
As you'd expect from a unit of this calibre, downloading geocaches and pocket queries is a breeze and the high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS chipset gives you the best chance of finding ground zero, even with heavy tree cover, or deep valleys. The built-in 3-axis tilt-compensating electronic compass and barometric altimeter mean you will have every navigational tool you need, right in the palm of your hand.
