and 4th of July festivities. Sorry I didn't give you a kiss goodbye last night, but I was exhausted. Hope you got some good shots, and home safe. Great seeing you! I can't think why not. I suppose I can, but I don't think the Montana is really fully developed yet. The Garmin team continues to fine tune the firmware, and it's still improving. Briefly, The Montana series has become the new benchmark standard for DualSport GPS units. It does A LOT of things right, and nothing really horribly wrong (like the screen on the Oregon was). I just had a look at the Rino's detailed specs. The 650 would suit us better... We already own the topo maps (they're not locked to a unit like City Nav), and we take pitchers with dedicated cameras -- taking the GPS off the mount to snap a pic would be a PIA. The specs are similar to the Montana for most things... the Montana has a more memory, and waypoint storage space. The biggest difference would be the HUGE bright and gorgeous screen on the Montana, and the fact that it's ergonomics are much better suited to DS riding than the Rino with it's protruding "horns" just waiting to catch tree-branches and whatnot, ready to be ripped off like real Rhino horns sawed off by poachers. Also, the Rino runs on 4.5V, requires a step-down adapter cable, and I believe can only be powered externally via a USB port, which is a known Achilles heel and a show-stopper from what I've heard from Oregon users. The Montana rugged mount by Garmin is the cat's pajamas. I can't think of a single reason anyone would want to buy the Touratech mount. The location / walkie talkie feature is nice, but I think we wouldn't use it that much. We're 98% within line of sight, so we know where each other is, and we have the Scala's to communicate. The NOAA radio... meh. We have one of these, (Eton FR160) and honestly, we haven't taken it since I think M4. 99% of the time we don't get reception, or we're traveling in an area that isn't covered by the NOAA system. Yeah, that's right... they don't broadcast everywhere. I found that hard to believe too, coming from the midwest where every spring and summer growing up I'd have my ear pressed to a Realistic Crystal Controlled transistor Weatheradio before going to bed, and first thing waking up. The Rino's definitely have nice features, but seem best suited for handheld use... maybe for a group of hunters, for instance, or hikers, or mountain bikers who split up into smaller groups taking different trails, where each group might have one unit, and they all want to hook up at the end of the day. Or a riding/hiking group that has a support truck following them. We have the Spot unit to be able to call in big support and rescue, I don't think the Rino's would replace that. The Montana isn't perfect, but it's a great upgrade from the 60/76 and 276 units.
