Hi Amjed

Thanks for your inputs as well. Its really nice for all of you to share your knowledge and expertise.

I've had a couple of phone chats with Ganesh and may buy his Garmin. He has mentioned that the Oregon also has the option of saving and retrieving tracks.

It would be nice for Gkumar to also provide his expertise on the subject and help me make an informed decision.

Regards

Sajid

Hi Saj, No doubt, Garmin is the preferred offroad GPS device for its accuracy and reliability. Montana 650 is a costlier option with sophisticated features.

However, any Garmin GPS with the below basic features will suffice your offroad GPS requirement.
1) Waypoint create/save/retrieve/edit.
2) Record and display the current track (track - saving & retrieving are not critical)
3) Direct routing navigation / offroad mode.

I can share with you my little knowledge on this subject, next time when we meet :)

Garmin Oregon has almost all relevant features of Montana and its a miniature of Montana.

Thank you GKumar for your valuable inputs. I will surely sync up with you on our next drive and hopefully will have a GPS device with me by then.

Thanks again. :thanks:

If I remember well, Yasir (@Crazy_Frog) had a manual for this model. You could check with him if he still has it.

Hi , apologies for my ignorance in advance as I am new to the website and new to the sport. I am looking forward to coming out for my first drive and am getting the essential equipment together. I have bought a Motorola MT-777 radio and have read the list of channels and frequencies. However after several hours with the instruction book I am still no closer to being able to programme the channels and frequencies you have listed. Can anyone advise a simple to understand set of instructions for how I do this ?

Many thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Chris R
