  1. Camouflaged Monterras eh? Yes, because when I drop my GPS I want it to instantly blend into the surrounding area. 🙂

  2. Rich,
    The “MAP” video is priceless! Where did you find it?

    ◾Random thought:
    Why does the Garmin Oregon 650 use a NiMH battery pack, while the Monterra uses Li-ion?
    The Montana/Monterra works with 3.6 Volts, eather with the Li-Ion or 3 NiMH batteries.
    The Oregon works with 2.4 Volts and 2 NiMH batteries-battery pack.
    There is no Li-Ion rechargeable battery for 2.4 Volts.
