SOLD - Garmin Montana 700i and powered mount


Recommended Posts

$575 shipped from probably KS, paypal FF

The Montana is a Garmin Recertified unit and the mount is brand new. Both of these will ship directly from Garmin to your address as part of a warranty replacement, so rather than sending images of my old unit, I'll include these:






The long story: the spring-loaded pins on my current powered mount seized and damaged the contact pads on the unit itself. This has been a problem with some Montana 7X0 units. Garmin acknowledged this as a known problem and said they are redesigning the mount. They also said they would replace the mount and unit when the redesigned mount was available, however, it's been almost a year since mine failed and they don't have a new mount yet. We're getting ready to leave the country and I can't have any failures while traveling, so I'm going a different direction for navigation.


Since it's been so long and there's no ETA on the redesign, Garmin is willing to swap the unit and mount out before the revised versions are released. They acknowledged that they will still replace them in the future with the new versions when released if this issue winds up occurring again.


I know this is a bit atypical, so I can have the unit and mount shipped to me, send pictures, receive payment, and then ship it out to you, but I ask that you cover shipping.
