Garmin has long been a leading player in the off-grid GPS market, with the company boasting a deep catalog of handheld and vehicle GPS systems, though it’s now blending the two categories with the updated Montana 700 Series, off-road hiking and motorsport GPS unit.

Meeting MIL-STD 810 standards for thermal, shock, vibration, and water, the unit is insanely rugged and can be handheld, or mounted to a dashboard or handlebars. The new Montana line features a 5” glove-friendly touchscreen display that can be read in direct sunlight, advanced navigation sensors, two-way messaging, multi-GNSS reception, and InReach technology and Interactive SOS alerts (the latter two of which aren’t available on the base 700 model). The top-of-the-line 750i also gets an 8MP camera, allowing it to double as a dash or action camera. The potent Lithium-ion battery also allows for 18 hours of use in GPS mode or up to 330 hours in expedition mode. There are also active weather reports, GPS directions, dog tracking, and satellite views, public land boundaries, and topographical maps. Priced at $600, $700, and $800 respectively, the Garmin Montana 700, Montana 700i, and Montana 750i are available now. A satellite subscription is also required, and dedicated mounting systems are also available for $100.
