Sell something. Wife, kids, cage, whatever. I used it for the first time in Sept. had my old 60CSx as a backup but never turned it on after the second day.
The Montana is intuitive, huge screen for aging eyes, wireless track and route sharing that was easy-peasy to figure out in a motel room the night before our start (and in spite of copious amounts of alcohol). Tremendous capacity for routes and tracks. Maps can be had free on gpsfileexchange. Easy to hard wire to the bike.
It's installed on my 800GS with a RAM mount - pennies compared to the TT mount, and adequate for a bike that won't ever see single-track.
My Nuvi has been relegated to use in the truck, and my trusty 60CSx will be for day rides on the 450. The Montana is lead bitch in the GPS harem.
Just MHO, which I felt compelled to share.
