Check out the new Garmin Montana 600 series. The Montanas sport a 4” touchscreen, as opposed to the Oregons’ 3” screen. In addition to the ability to give spoken directions when loaded with City Navigator maps, all three models come with a tri-axial compass, barometric altimeter, paperless geocaching capabilities and a li-ion battery pack. Or you can use 3 AA batteries. Battery life is rated at 16 hours for the li-ion (same as the Oregon), but you’ll get a boost to 22 hours with AAs. This device is not only a handheld but also a Nuvi and best of all, it is waterproof!

With the bigger screen and battery capacity comes bulk. While the thickness is the same as the Oregon series, the units measure a little larger in width and height, 2.9" x 5.7", compared to 2.3" x 4.5" for the Oregons. It does taper a bit more on the ends, as can be seen below.

I have been waiting a long time for this 'Crossover' unit similar to what Magellan has though not with map support like Garmin. I was told that Garmin would never offer one. Anybody know what is the price?

650T comes with camera and preloaded topomaps
650 comes with camera
600 basic set, no camera

The camera that can geotag photos is great for capturing POIs. When I check the specs detail, I could not see an external antenna port on it, is that true?
