The Montana is waterproof to IPX7 standards, so you can use it in any weather. You can even use it around water without worrying about damage.
With the Montana, you can measure an area for farming and other rural and marine applications. Area measurement is simple and fast. Just walk, drive or ride around the perimeter to be measured, press a button, and there you have it. A really productive feature for farmers, botanists, agronomists, graziers, oyster and fish culture, salt-works… etc etc. For farming, agriculture, agronomy, aquaculture and related endeavours, the Montana 650T measures distances and directions between points, and area measurements.
