Default Anyone have the Garmin Oregon or Montana GPS?

Wondering how the touch screen works in the cold and how you like either model? Would like to purchase one and use the satellite imagery. Thanks

I find the screen very difficult to see in daylight. I have the Oregon 450T. I like how it works otherwise.

How do you guys like the Oregons?
Need to replace my iFinder, was thinking a Garmin.

Are they able to be hooked up to a computer to save trails and waypoints?

Are they all color screen?

Easy to use?

Also have 450t, love it and have all the topo maps, satellite images, and snow trails mapped on it. And yeah the brightness works fine.

I also have the handlebar ram mount for it, never comes out nd well worth it.
