Good one!

"It also has a built-in UV sensor so users can monitor the intensity of the sun, and reduce exposure if necessary."

Why couldn't they go one step further and squirt out a little sunscreen when the UV is high. This is the kind of omission I've come to expect from Garmin!

Yeah, but wait 'til you see what happens when you set the "Auto Dim" feature to Yes!

It's got some interesting features. Wouldn't mine the NOAA SAME alerts while out on a ride. Wonder if it would update the location of that automatically. Though, I want some more info on the specs. Also, bit pricey for me. Just got a Montana so I won't be updating anytime soon.

I had been thinking about the Montana, but by the time I buy the SM10 so I can hear it, I might as well get the Monterra (assuming the Bluetooth pans out for music and directions audio). I'll be watching this one with great interest.

It doesn't? The specs say 200 routes and they say you can use it in your car. It would be hard to imagine them not supporting routing on something like this.

I just hope they don't do the same idiotic thing they did with the Montana and limit the routes to a worthless 50 points.

Is there a late-model Garmin unit that can handle more than 50 via points in an Along-road Route? I was told several years ago that this was a "built-in" limitation of the Navigation Engine code that all newer units would be using.

I can think of a lot of Routing functions I'd like to see before I'd complain about ≤50 via points.

Routing. . .

Share Wirelessly

With Wi-Fi, ANT+™, Bluetooth® and NFC, Monterra lets you share your data, maps, waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible devices. Plus, you can share large files like photos and data from field work through BaseCamp™ or by downloading it directly to your computer.

Go Anywhere

With an array of compatible mounts, Monterra is designed for use on ATVs, in boats, as a handheld or in your car. Use the auto mount for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or the rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV.

Death Valley

I was very lucky and upgraded to the "Death Valley" from Garmin.

It's lite years ahead of the Montana and Monterra----but sadly no one else will ever get one----since it's perfect right out of the box.
It seems after some lengthy market research Garmin decided to not put this on the market as they found out people love spending half their lives yakking about their gps and re-booting---------resetting------------upgrading operating systems------sending units back for repairs--and or replacing them------downloading---uploading----spending hours in front of their computer instead of riding..

There will be no "Death Valley" thread with thousands and thousands of posts. It's perfect.
