You'll never get through the whole New Garmin Montana thread, but the topic in my sig is the Coles Notes version.
Want to know more about the Garmin Montana? See the Wisdom and FAQ Thread.
Want to know more about the Garmin VIRB? See here.
"The motorcycle, being poorly designed for both flight and marine operation, sustained significant external and internal damage," police noted.

except for the 'only garmin could make us feel good about 2GB for $150 in 2012' part.

Got it in the same package as KevinC. Shipping was really faster than I expected. Ordered on June 2nd and I got it yesterday (June 14th). Less than 2 weeks. I own a GPSMAP 296. For now, it seems to work like the original one from Garmin. I was able to load mostly all of the City Navigator NA NT 2012 and a big section of Topo Canada v4.

Good to have space on my GPS. I'm going from 128Mb to 2Gb.
