GARMIN MONTERRA


Garmin Monterra is its manufacturer’s first Android-based recreation GPS unit. It is mostly designed for leisure activities such as biking, Geocaching, hiking and so on, but it is also very helpful for miners, contractors and even fire rescuers. This particular model is relatively large, with the screen of 4-inch diagonal and a 272 x 480-pixel resolution, weighing up to 331-grams with the supplied lithium-ion battery pack, or even heavier of 375-grams if you use three AA batteries instead. It is not as large as it seems from the given measurements, as it can easily fit into your pockets, plus the casing is rugged and is rated to IPX7 standards, meaning it can withstand being under water up to 1-meter for 30 minutes with no damages whatsoever. Basically, it is not designed to take it with you while diving, but it will be fine if dropped in a puddle or a river, and the rain will do it no harm at all. It is equipped with mini-USB port and a headphone jack, that are placed beneath these rubber flaps. Garmin Monterra features an impressive 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor with an Imagine Technologies PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, having a 663MB RAM, which definitely is more than enough for this powerful device. You will be provided with highly accurate locations at all times with both, GPS and GLOASS technologies. The abovementioned included 2,000mAh lithium-ion battery provides up to 16 hours of continuous usage. Moreover, you have an option to carry some AA batteries with you for a prolonged battery life. Setting up the device is similar to Android interface, but with additional Garmin GPS-related extra features. You will have a variety of highly detailed and accurate maps, such as Ordnance Survey and so on. Additionally, the device is equipped with a World Land Basemap as well as Recreational Map of Europe v4, also some BirdsEye Select areas. You can also load a variety of Android apps and games and run them flawlessly. The device has an internal memory of 8GB, with only 6GB available for apps and the rest 2GB for the default installations, but you have an option to easily insert a microSD card right under the battery. Garmin Monterra is equipped with an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, and the ability to shoot 1080/30p videos. All of your footage will automatically be geotagged, so it will be easier to remember the places you have visited. This device is definitely not a cheap one, but considering its abilities, extensibility and features, it is totally worth every cent you pay for it. Overall, the Monterra is a handheld GPS unit, that is fully customizable and configurable in order to fulfill all your needs. However, it is certainly one of the best handheld GPS devices you can get today on the market, and the reviewers claimed that they are completely satisfied with it.
