Garmin Montana 680 and Montana 680t Maps

Do you own a Garmin Montana 680 or Montana 680t? Are you considering buying one?

Then you need to read on to discover the additional maps you can buy from ActiveGPS and install to take the Garmin Montana 680 / Montana 680t and view your outdoor adventures in a whole new, more detailed way than ever before!

As standard the Garmin Montana 680 (depending on the model purchased) is preloaded with Garmin's basemap. The basemap includes major roads, rivers, lakes, etc. Whilst useful, this information doesn't match up to the additional mapping that is available to use with the Garmin Montana 680 and Montana 680t handheld GPS devices.

What is the difference between the Garmin Montana 680 and Montana 680t? The Garmin Montana 680t includes preloaded regional topograhical maps. These pre-installed TOPO maps are at a scale of between 1:100K and 1:250K. Models purchased in the the UK and Europe were supplied with TOPO Europe maps.

The additional maps that are available provide rich specific map data for different purposes e.g. TOPO maps - perfect for hiking and walking in Great Britain and mainland Europe. In total there are five different types of maps that can be used within the Garmin Montana 680 and Garmin Montana 680t. Read on to discover more about them.


Garmin Montana 680 TOPO Maps

Topographical maps or TOPO maps (for short) range are the premium map series from Garmin for exploring and navigating the great outdoors and countryside of Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, TransAlpine and Austria and Switzerland to name a few of the available Garmin TOPO map titles. As well as hiking/walking, the Garmin topographic map series are also perfect for mountain biking, skiing, etc and provide high-detailed scale maps of around 1:50K to 1:25K scale.

The latest Garmin TOPO map series uses the best in available maps for each country. For example, Great Britain TOPO maps use Ordnance Survey (OS) data at a scale of either 1:50K or 1:25K, while the French TOPO map titles use IGN data at a scale of 1:25K.

For walking/hiking in Great Britain, Garmin Montana 680 and Garmin Montana 680t owners have two options:

1. Garmin TOPO Great Britain PRO 1:25K SD/microSD card (pictured right)

Garmin Montana 680 GB Discoverer Maps

Garmin Great Britain (GB) Discoverer map series has been discontinued by Garmin and replaced by the Garmin TOPO series (see above section of maps). The Garmin GB Discoverer map series comprised of more than 60 GB Discoverer map titles. Each map title covered a specific National Park or National Trail in Great Britain e.g. Yorkshire Wolds Way at a scale of 1:25K.

In comparison the new Garmin TOPO GB map at a scale of 1:25K now features the whole of Great Britain, negating the need to buy multiple map SD/microSD cards. However, if you only planned to visit one single National Park or National Trail you could save a lot of money, by just buying the area you require e.g. North Yorkshire Moors, rather than buying the map for the whole country.

While the majority of Garmin GB Discoverer titles are now sold out, we do have limited number of maps available to buy from ActiveGPS. Currently available 1:25K scale GB Discoverer maps that you can buy from ActiveGPS include: 1:25K Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, 1:25K Northumberland,1:25K Central Highlands and 1:25K Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path (pictured right).
