The monterra seems like a long overdue fix for Garmin's previously deliberately hobbled machines. But what does it offer for 500+ dollars over a phone we all likely already have? it's Waterproof?
Nothing if your cell phone works for you on your bike. You are not obligated to be interested or purchase one.

As I mentioned, I'll publish my review when they are released and you can decide for yourself but I'm guessing the Monterra is not for you.
