I like my old 60 series. The screen is a little small for me now that my eyes are not what they used to be. Its a real simple unit to use. You don't have to go into sub menus to get to different screens and there are buttons on the front that make it somewhat usable with gloves on. They are popular units. The used prices are going up from what I paid for mine a few years back.Alright looking to get my first GPS to start doing a little off trail riding. What recommendations do you have for a GPS that works well in cold weather and works well for off trail riding. I was looking at a Garmin 64s. Thoughts??
I was considering a Garmin 64s because of it's compact size relative to the Montana 600. I thought the 64s might be easier to carry in a pocket for hiking/walking when it wasn't attached to my sled or dual purpose motorcycle. I had a chance to handle and compare both units side by side at a Cabela's. A young, knowledgeable salesman spent quite a bit of time (I'm really low tech) showing me the two units. After handling and viewing both, I felt that I could manipulate and find my way around the various functions on the touch screen Montana 600 unit better/faster than I could using the buttons on the 64s. I also found the larger Montana screen was much easier for my aging eyes to see. In the end, I went with the larger, more expensive Montana 600.Alright looking to get my first GPS to start doing a little off trail riding.
