Zumo v. Montana Revival

Looking to upgrade (due to old eyes) from my Oregon, and looking for something on which I can read the maps while riding. The Oregon used to work great, but the smaller screen is getting tough.

I am mostly a street rider with some dirt, but not hardcore off road. While that might militate towards a Zumo 650-ish, I don't need/want a voice talking in my helmet (other than my own demons), and I also really prefer a unit that runs mostly on batteries where I can swap out the AAs or AAAs during the day.

Does anyone have a picture comparing the two screen sizes/visibilities? And, with that criteria, would the Montana work better, as I don't think the Zumos have replaceable batteries, do they?

Thanks.
