I'm in a similar position myself. Want something for the 1190.
The GPS 60 is to small of screen and I can't read it anymore.
My phone is ok, but not without signal.

I'll be watching this thread with interest.

Please update which way you go.

Cheers

Garmin Montana works great for me for about 80,000 kms on my DR, S10, 4wd and Berg. The rugged mounts are great, and the Aus/NZ topo mapset is excellent, as is Basecamp once you get your head around it all. Not cheap, but works.

Agreed and spare parts available if needed. Got a complete screen and digitizer for $100 after an unlucky oops. The only thing i don't like is the not being able to turn off pin drops as its too easy to active one when screen navigating.

Few mates run the Montana 650
