Hey Domonsura, I'm upgrading my GPS60cx and have been looking at the Montana in particular. Its an expensive unit but looks the goods IMO mainly due to the size of the screen. Unless I'm missing something, on the garmin website the Oregon 450T has a 3" diagonal screen size ( 240x400 pixels) compared to the Montana 650t with 4" diag (272x480 pixels). Looking at some video of the two side by side the Montana is clearly a much larger unit, although about the same thickness as the Oregon. One feature I like on the Montana is the dual orientation screen allowing it be mounted in landscape or portrait position on the bike. I just re-read your post and see you mention the Oregon can't do this. After using the 60cx for so long with such a small screen and limited lateral viewing area I'm thinking either unit would be good but may be worth shelling out the extra $$ for the large screen and landscape mode. Hey, if Colebatch uses the Montana its gotta be good right?
