This is the Android (device) you're looking for! The new Garmin Monterra is packed with the latest and greatest technology, bringing Android OS and WiFi to a rugged handheld GPS navigation system. The Monterra boasts a four-inch diagonal multi-touch color display and can access the Google Play Store to download a variety of apps - and developers can even make their own! Monterra also has a built-in FM radio and NOAA weather radio with SAME alerts, so users can receive watches and warnings related to their location. Users can either listen with headphones or through the built-in speaker.
The Garmin Monterra has a multi-channel GPS/GLONASS receiver to find your location quickly and keep it even under heavy tree cover or in a deep canyon. There is also a built-in three-axs electronic compass with gyro, indicating direction even when the user is standing still. A barometric altimeter and UV sensor measure the user's elevation and exposure, respectively.
One of the most exciting features is the new, exclusive-to-Monterra 3D MapMerge. With this feature, users can combine two maps into one unique map in three dimensions. Hills, valleys, lakes, roads, and points of interest combine to give Monterra's maps unequaled detail and richness. Combine BirdsEye with TOPO US 24K, or a GIS-based water table map with a shaded relief basemap, then zoom in, pan out, and rotate the 3D map using multi-touch. With 3D MapMerge, Monterra becomes the ultimate mapping tool.
No need to take a separate camera out into the field, either. Monterra has a built-in 8-megapixel autofocus digital camera that takes vivid, geo-tagged photos for easy return navigation, plus a 1080p HD video camera with LED flash. Users can easily download photos and videos to their computer for either work or sharing using Garmin Adventures. Monterra has 8 GB of internal memory built-in plus a microSD slot for even more extra storage.
Monterra features a vivid and highly durable mineral glass display that uses sunlight in combination with the unit's LED backlight to increase brightness and view-ability. Monterra has an IPX7 waterproof rating and also uses a dual battery system, which allows users the option of using the rechargeable Li-ion pack (included) or traditional AA batteries. It is also compatible with the same mounts as the Garmin Montana, so users can take Monterra anywhere.
Go wireless with Monterra. It has WiFi, ANT+, and Bluetooth 3.0 capabilities, which allows users to share data, maps, waypoints, tracks, routes, and geocaches with other wireless compatible devices. Additionally, Monterra is compatible with BaseCamp, a free software download that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks.
Monterra is a "heavyweight geocaching device," meaning it can hold millions of geocaches. Download caches from OpenCaching.com, or use a downloaded Android app, and users won't run out of room. All the paperless geocaching features, such as descriptions, hints and logs, will be there for every single cache. Cachers can also view photos, connect to chirp enabled caches, and filter caches by size, terrain, difficulty and type.
