    I haven't used this one, but I just read the specs on Garmin.com and it's too basic for DS use.

    What's your budget?

    Not sure. If I have to wait and save to get what will work, I will. Don't really know what functions I need for duelsport riding. I'm really just getting into the sport.

    There are many older posts in this Forum that offer advice on choosing a GPS - the basic principles are unchanged even though new models keep arriving.

    Here's an old document I posted a while back which covers the basic features you need in a GPS for dual sport use.

    Is the Garmin Montana 610 still king of the hill these days? I realize it's over the $400 threshold as per the well written and thought out document in a post above.

    I believe it is.

    Fortunately, I paid $399 for my Montana 600 back in January 2012 :)

    BTW, it's on sale at GPSCity.ca for $459 until April 20. Tell them your with ODSC and you might get Free Shipping.
