Garmin Montana 680 and 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 and install to take the Garmin Montana 680 and 680t and view your outdoor adventures in a whole new way!

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

The additional maps that are available provide rich specific map data for different purposes e.g. City Navigator NT maps which provides street-level road maps, perfect when using the Montana 680 and 680t in a car for navigation or for road cycling. In total there are four different types of maps (pictured right) that can be used within the Montana 680. Read on to discover more about them.

All of the maps below come supplied on microSD card within a SD card adaptor, meaning not only will they work with the Montana 680, but also other Garmin compatible devices that take a different size SD card too. So for example you could purchase a City Navigator NT street-level map, use it with your Montana 680 or 680t handheld GPS and then use the same map in your Garmin nuvi car sat nav too.

Please note: When using any of the map SD/microSD Cards below they needs to remain in your Garmin Montana 680 or 680t at all times so the map can be read. The map card cannot be copied to either your Montana 680, PC or external hard drive. However the map SD card can be used in multiple compatible Garmin devices, but only one at a time.
