Monterra is the first full-featured Wi-Fi enabled GPS device that combines powerful Garmin mapping with the versatility of the Android operating system. Monterra integrates the robust and versatile Android OS into a durable, feature-packed, top-of-the-line handheld GPS device. It provides outdoor professionals and enthusiasts with the ability to customize their GPS device to perfectly suit their personal and professional needs, and they can take it with them outdoors. Monterra adds a whole new level of mapping with a 4", color, multi-touch display and the unique 3D MapMerge technology that can meld the graphics of different maps (BirdsEye Satellite Imagery and GIS maps) then view them in 3-D for a rich, realistic experience.
Access all your favorite outdoor-related Android apps like: PeakFinder, star constellation charts, ballistic calculator and more using Google Play. You can even access professional apps like construction estimators and ArcGIS® to extend some office functions to the field. The rugged and durable Monterra has the power and flexibility to go anywhere.
Monterra is the ultimate mapping tool with custom 3-D mapping, which lets you combine 2 maps - like TOPO, basemap or BirdsEye Satellite Imagery - then view the new unique map in 3-D complete with visible "texture," such as hills, valleys, lakes and forests. For example, combine BirdsEye with TOPO U.S. 24K or a GIS-based water table map with your shaded relief basemap. Then zoom in, pan out and rotate the 3-D map using multi-touch.
Double Your Power
Monterra features a state-of-the-art dual battery system. You'll have the option of using the rechargeable lithium-ion pack (included) or traditional AA batteries - lithium-ion pack charges when device is connected to external power.
Monterra includes 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/torch. Then download easily to your computer or for sharing through Garmin Adventures. Monterra has plenty of internal memory plus a microSD card slot for up to 64 additional GB of memory.
Monterra's reflective display technology uses external light, like sunlight, in combination with the unit's LED backlight to increase brightness and view-ability. Plus, you conserve power by not having to turn on the backlight.
Get Your Bearings
Monterra has a built-in 3-axis electronic compass with accelerometer and gyro, which shows where you're heading even when you're standing still (or not holding it level). Once calibrated, its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you even can use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions. A built-in UV sensor lets you know your exposure level to sunlight so you can avoid sun damage, especially at higher elevations (5 percent increase in intensity every 1000 ft of altitude) and on bright or reflective surfaces (snow, water, etc). And with its high-sensitivity, WAAS- and GLONASS-enabled GPS receiver, Monterra locates your position with more precision and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons.
With Wi-Fi, ANT+, Bluetooth® and NFC, Monterra lets you share your data, maps, waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches up to 50 times faster with other wireless compatible devices. Plus, you can share large files like photos and data from field work through BaseCamp or by downloading it directly to your computer.
Adding other Garmin maps to Monterra is easy. Load BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required) and hit the trail. Add Trailhead Series TOPO maps and explore famous treks like the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. Or, load up your GIS-based maps and go to work.
Load Millions of Geocaches
No more picking, choosing and planning, just download them all. The Monterra can hold millions of geocaches. Download every cache on OpenCaching.com. Load caches from GSAK. Or use your favorite Android app. All your paperless geocaching features will be there for every cache. Read full descriptions, hints and logs. View cache photos. Filter caches by size, terrain, difficulty and type. Connect to chirp-enabled caches.
Never miss vital information (or entertainment) with Monterra's built-in FM radio and NOAA weather radio with SAME alerts - get watches and warnings related to your location. Listen with headphones or share with the whole group through the built-in speaker.
Plan Your Next Trip
Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp, software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
With an array of compatible mounts, Monterra is designed for use on ATVs, in boats, as a handheld or in your car. Use the auto mount for spoken, turn-by-turn driving directions, or the rugged mount for your motorcycle or ATV.
