    Anyone needing a decent GPS for Christmas might want to look at this one for $229 on Monday only:

    It has similar specs to the Montana EXCEPT small non-touch screen, plus it has the round 4-pin 12V input plug (unlike the 62/64 series). The basic 78 is often sold for $199 (best budget m/c GPS) but for the extra $30 you get electronic compass, altimeter and GPS-to-GPS wireless transfer, none of which are essential for our type of riding.

    The Montana 600 that many of us have is now discontinued and replaced with the Montana 610. No significant differences and it doesn't seem to be discounted much, usually over $600 - it way more than I'd pay for GPS. Occasionally there are some refurbished Montana 600's but they aren't much of a deal - still over $400.

    I paid $399 for my Montana not long after it was introduced - I've never seen it since at that price.
