Montana 600 Waypoint Limitation and Issue
I use a Montana 600 and have developed a serious issue that Garmin cannot or will not resolve. I have 980 saved waypoints and the unit is supposed to allow up to 4,000 waypoints – that is less than 25% of the rated capacity. At some point, I reached the threshold of the unit’s capability which is considerably less than 980 waypoints! Now when I use the Waypoint Manager function and select any waypoint greater than “T” the unit gives me a blue screen of death and freezes. The only way to reset the unit is to pull the battery as the on/off switch does nothing once it freezes. Garmin told me to reduce the number of waypoints because all the Montana-series handheld units have the same issue. Does anyone else have this issue? Is there a fix for it because it doesn’t look like Garmin is going to help me after several weeks of communication with them over this issue? Also, they told me not to use any BaseCamp waypoint icon that is not available on the Montana. The Montana only has about half of the icons available on BaseCamp.
