Perhaps at a $200 price point one could expect that but not at $800. Just sayin.
I'm just looking into the Montana's, but your statement sure seems to hold true with every GPS unit I've owned. The GPS industry seems to really do well with the Satellite end of things, but their software seems to be stuck in the 80's as far as user friendliness goes.
