New Montana Owner - Finally! A few initial questions

I'm sure the answers are in this thread somewhere. But the info seems to change daily, so I'd appreciate the latest correct setup

Brand new virgin Montana 650 - Haven't even turned it on yet.
I want to load CNNT 2013 with lifetime updates and Topo 100k maps. I have CD's for both.
The questions:
1) I believe the best setup is to load the maps to a uSD card, correct?
2) What size card should I get, and is there a specific brand / model that is fast and compatible?
3) What is the specific procedure to ensure the maps are loaded to the uSD card (and not the unit)?

Any other specific pointers for initial setup of the unit are much appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

One final question (for now);
Does the Montana have fitness functions to monitor heart rate, cadence, etc.?

I see heart rate straps and cadence sensors in the accessories list for the Montana on their website. But I cannot find anything that definitely states yes or no for these functions.

If I can use the Montana while running and bicycling in place of my Forerunner wrist unit to monitor and track my rides/runs that would be a bonus.
