Garmin Montana 600/650 - Compatible with Mac?

I see comparisons on the internet (i.e. the REI website) that says the Montana 650T is compatible with Mac, but that the 600 and 600T are only Windows compatible. Called Garmin Tech Support and someone there said all three are Mac compatible. Can someone who owns and uses a 600 or 600T confirm their Mac compatibility? Or perhaps there is an overriding consideration to avoid the lower unit (600) and upgrade to the 600T/650T? FYI, the camera function is really of no interest to me whatsoever, which is principally why I don't see the need to go the 600T/650T route if I can avoid it.

Thanks for any helpful comments or suggestions!

Sorry about the subject line reference questioning the 650 and Mac comp ability - clearly it is and that's been well established.

If one is, they all are. Garmin is correct, they can all be used with Basecamp on a Mac.

My 600 works fine on my Mac.

Eddyturn, thanks that's great to know. That pretty much cinches my decision then.
