Garmin's Rugged Montana GPS Brings Thrills To Ourdoorsmen

Going somewhere? Going somewhere where you'll need a rugged navigation system to get you there? Garmin's new Montana handheld offers just that, and the company's calling it the most advanced of its kind. It offers a rugged exterior, with multiple mounting and battery options, dual-orientation and screen layout options and support for a wide range of Garmin cartography. It has a barometric altimeter for elevation profiling and ability to profile the route ahead using included worldwide elevation model, and the included 3-axis compass gives it a heading while standing still or not held level.

There's a 4" touch panel, a 5MP camera, sunlight-readable display, and tons of extra features that are sure to be appreciated by argonauts. No word on price just yet, but there's a video below to get you amped up.
