I have to call BS on that. My Montana lasts about 6 hours on the stock Li battery- fully charged. Actually, when I first figured this out, I was pretty pissed that I believed the Garmin marketing regarding battery life. (I have it hardwired on one bike, but have used it on battery power for some other bikes.)
I realize that wasn't the purpose of this thread, but wanted to point out the battery life, in case anyone cares.
Also, the [new] Google Maps on my 4+ year old iPhone (3gs!) draw much faster and recalculate waay faster than my Garmin. And, they are much nicer to look at (although too small to see while riding). But, the Montana's construction is much better for my riding (off-road, mainly). I wished I could have Google Maps in my Montana- that would be ideal for me.
