I have used the Montana for several years. decent size touch screen. Can add custom maps, topo maps, BC backroads maps. good battery life also.

I've heard good things about the Montana!

I've been using an etrex 20 on my mountain bike since 2014 without any issues. It's a bit of a pain to setup, but online tutorials help and once you have it setup the way you like it it's a nice little unit. For a map, I use ones from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ which are free and use open street map data. With the backlight off, the batteries seem to last forever. :biggrin:

Good unit, quite similar functions as the montana. I just cant stand the map scrolling small screens with the selector button. Let me know if you want maps
