    I am considering the camera models. Any opinions on the image quality?

    It's not about image quality - it's about having a picture attached to waypoints. :wink: It's a utility, not a prize winning camera.

    But it does take reasonable pictures anyway, imho.

    Hope you remembered to order the Garmin Rugged Mount for an extra $35 too.

    I haven't been to Ebay in a while, but I just searched Garmin Montana and I can't figure out how someone is selling a new unit for $75 bucks or thereabouts. Has to be a scam, right?

    Looks like a pricing error from a reputable seller. I dunno?

    Who's the seller? I bought my Montana 600 for $399; it was a Black Friday deal and it was from a reputable dealer.

    Have you ever heard of them, and are they a Garmin dealer? That's what I'd want to know.

    They're a top rated seller with 99.3% positive feedback. Weird. Now they are listing the 650t for $33.54.

    I gotta think it is a computer error that they'll catch when they figure out what is happening.

    They just ended that 650t. Someone woke up.

    There's something that doesn't make sense. If they were an authorized Garmin dealer, they could not buy the units from Garmin for those sorts of prices.

    That's why I'm thinking someone in their listing department...or a computer messed up.

    That seller just cancelled and is refunding all orders. They are blaming a 3rd party software for the glitch.
