About this product

The Monterra is the first Wi-Fi enabled GPS device that combines Garmin GPS features with an Android operating system. This provides users with the ability to customise their device to perfectly suit individual needs and also means you can take your apps with you into the most harsh and demanding outdoor conditions.

Latest GPS receiver technology
The Monterra has a high-sensitivity, dual-band GPS and GLONASS receiver which lets it find your location quickly and maintains its signal, even in challenging locations such as in heavy cover and deep valleys. The built-in 3-axis compass has an accelerometer and gyro which will provide the user's direction even when standing still and when the device is not held level. The barometric altimeter will track changes in pressure to calculate precise altitude and by plotting changes in pressure over time will also give you important information about changing weather conditions. A built-in UV sensor also lets you keep an eye on your sun exposure.

Dual battery system
The Monterra utilises a dual battery system which allows you to use either the internal lithium-ion battery pack, which can be charged inside the unit, or alternatively you can switch to 3 x AA batteries. The Monterra will last for up to 16 hours on one battery charge (internal lithium-ion) or 22 hours using AA batteries.

3D Mapmerge
Custom 3D mapping lets you combine two maps (such as Topo, basemap, BirdsEye maps) into a new unique 3D map with visible "texture" such as hills, forests and lakes. The multi-touch screen lets you zoom in, pan out and rotate the map for the ultimate in viewing flexibility.

Photographs and sound
The Monterra has a built-in 8MP autofocus camera which takes geotagged photographs. It also has a 1080p HD video camera with LED flash/torch. All images and videos can be downloaded easily to your computer or shared via Garmin Adventures. The unit has 6GB internal memory which can be expanded using the microSD card slot (up to 64GB additional memory).
