Anyone experience trouble with recharge with a Shorai battery? I've had two failures, both on touratech mounts; one on my KTM 690 and today on my GSA. In Vienna on a euro- tour for three months and the 650 takes a dump with "non supported external battery" WTF now?

The BASEMAP is severely crude and should not be used for navigation purposes, as it does not contain anything beyond major highways, and they are incredibly crude and inaccurate in their representation.

The BASEMAP is only intended to help you locate places on the map screen from very high zoom levels, nothing more.

If you want a detailed and accurate street map, you will need to install one.

What is the size of the OSM *.img file on the GPSr? (You added an image, so I can see it is 1.5 GB.

What are your map setup settings for detail and zoom set to?

Just saw on Facebook software 5.2 is out, though the only thing mentioned is that they updated the Icelandic keyboard. I guess that warrants a point number increase...

Garmin does not include uSD cards with the Montana, or any other GPS. Vendors may include special packages with uSD cards, but the only maps above and beyond the BASEMAP that garmin ships with the Montana are the 100k Topo map, and it is pre-installed on the GPSr, not on an uSD card.

I suggest some reading here to help you in a productive direction.

Just stick an earplug or two into the battery compartment. All Montanas have that problem, sooner or later. It's not serious.

It's not serious until the battery jiggling around breaks off the battery contacts. I'd put some padding in the battery compartment sooner rather than later.

The battery can't jiggle around that much, afaik. I've never heard of the Montana breaking any contacts. The contacts to the Lithium aren't the breakable kind, anyway. The AA connections, on the other hand probably could be broken but I don't hear of many [people using those unless it's an emergency.
