With Garmin Montana's new ruggedized design there is no longer a need to hold back, regardless of your adventure. The Garmin Montana GPS handheld is fully waterproof and capable of withstanding all the mud and grit you can throw at it, even when connected to its optional powered mount. Use the power mount capability and City Navigator for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or the rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV. If you are on foot, simply plug headphones into Montana's 3.5mm audio jack to hear the spoken prompts.
