In case of emergency, trigger an interactive SOS message to GEOS, a professional 24/7 global monitoring and response center (active satellite subscription required, details below).


Instead of relying on cellphone coverage, now your messages, SOS and tracking are transferred via the 100% global Iridium® satellite network (active satellite subscription required, details below).


Available inReach weather forecast service provides detailed updates directly to your Montana handheld or paired devices, so you’ll know what to expect en route.

Be prepared. With navigation for any situation.

Trek far and wide off-grid. Use Expedition mode, an ultralow-power GPS reference, to keep Montana tracking for a week or more between recharges.

    Expensive, function but occasionally quirky

    I bought this unit to do a long solo motorcycle trip around Australia as a back up to my motorcycle GPS as well as a means to communicate via Satellite if I needed to. About 30% of my planned journey was outside of mobile phone coverage and although I already had a SPOT tracker, the access to two way communicating from anywhere was needed. It takes some investment in understanding how the unit works. The UI is 20th Century standard so it takes some time to regress yourself in the ways things used to be done in olden days. The other thing is that the unit will get confused if you have more than one map (the automative map) is made available to it in automotive mode. You’re not told this (at least I have not found it in the instructions) but the unit will hang if it tries to do turn by turn navigation where it can choose multiple maps. If you limit the map available (takes some searching too) to the map used for turn by turn navigation the unit works as advertised. If you don’t it hangs and causes much wailing and gnashing of teeth. The active weather function that uses data via your phone is clunky and slow too, but when it loads there is a view were you can see your route in reference to storm activity in the area. I made good use of this in the first trip away and was able to go around a major thunderstorm cell, which is peace of mind when riding on a motorcycle, exposed to the elements. The only reason I ranked this as average is the User Interface. The unit itself in terms of capability is excellent, but the cost has to be questioned. I cannot see where a grand goes to be candid (not Johnny’s fault either). Garmin may care to answer.

    Pros: Everything you would want in a GPS unit is there. Great to use for almost any adventure and the iReach feature is fabulous.
    Cons: The user interface is Windows 95 standard and has almost as many quirks

    Perfect for what I use it for

    Works great and having birds eye on it the visual aspect makes it easier to work out where you are. I use it on an off road buggy on some very large properties so knowing where you are and where you have been is important. Ease of use is a bonus, I would or will buy a sun shade as it’s hard to read in direct sunlight but otherwise detail is excellent

    Pros: Easy to use

    Huge upgrade to the 680T

    This GPS is an upgrade from my old 680T. That was a nice unit and solidly mounted onto my KTM. However larger screen and better contrast sold me on the 700i. Must say I'm very impressed. Way easier to read and follow the map when riding. UI is pretty much the same over the 680T, maybe a bit easier. I like the favourites bar and just how easy it is to use overall. I have not yet signed up for an Inreach Plan so cannot comment on that feature. Guess its nice to have if required. I couldn't see the point in the 750i with the camera as I always use my iPhone for photo's. The unit is large in the hand, but my primary use is for vehicle mount so no big problem for me. Certainly recommend this GPS for any off-road / adventure style activity.

    Pros: Large screen, easy to use interface, excellent map products
    Cons: Back light could be a tad stronger, although not a game killer.
