So far, I love the Montana. A true track-capable GPS that is readable in full sunlight. I usually run it at 80% brightness during the day and it's just about perfect. 50% at night gives me good readability without too much light output. I use the Garmin rugged mount and wire it to the front accessory socket for power.

As to the heated gear controller, here's the site that has a pretty good description of it:

In essence, the receiver lives in the jacket in a little pocket designed especially for it. The controller is paired to the receiver and uses a CR2032 battery as its power source. It allows 0-100% control of two independent channels. I have run the two channels as jacket+gloves and pants+socks, or jacket+pants+socks and gloves separate. It all works great.
