That one does include the Touratec cradle, a $175 extra.

When you go the Montana Route, check out GPSCity.ca. They are great to deal with and FAST shipping from out West. I bet their prices are on par with everywhere else.

http://www.gpscity.ca/search/q=montana

At the time, the gps was new to the market, it had tunes... I wanted tunes, had a cellular feature, has blue tooth for the headset... By jumping george I was going to have tunes... I like having tunes..

the mount is coming from them, gpscity I have all ready rec'd the its shipped email..


as for the kijiji ad, I think 500 is still too much even with the tourtec mount... But worth more than mine..

Not as exciting as off-road rally racing video but I thought somebody might be interested in the new Action camera on the market, the Garmin VIRB.

This is a test video I created Friday with my VIRB Elite in 720p, Econo mode.



And this one yesterday, in 1080p.



Anyone interested in buying a couple of GoPro II cameras with WiFi/Remote controls?

It has a built-in gps. And an accelerometer so you can also see the g-forces from acceleration and braking. And it also has WiFi built in, though the Smartphone App to use WiFi is not out yet.

But the neat thing is that the Montana, 62S/78S and a few other models can be used as remote controls for the Elite.

It's unlikely that Garmin will phase out the Montana. I've had a Monterra for the last 6 months and strictly as a gps, I prefer my Montana. But of course the Monterra is much more than just a gps.

What, the VIRB or the Monterra?

If you mean the Monterra, check DRTBYK's review of it here.

hmm. Interesting. A veritable geocaching addict and all around Garmin aficionado told me that the Montana would be replaced by the Monterra. While they are very similar on the outside, they ain't too similar on the inside. I'm going to ask him where he got his information. He has both, among other models as well.

I spotted a marked down Montana 600 at a Berlin sporting goods store the other day -- marked down to 240 (reg 400). I nearly grabbed it. The sale price works out to ~ $350. Maybe my dog will buy it for me.

Was going to wash my bike today in Richmond but the temperature was 0C so I thought perhaps that would not be a good idea after all so I went around the block instead.
