  2. I know this isn't the question you're asking, but I have a Montana as well, and while i agree it's not intuitive, it does a great job for on and off road, and good, free topo maps are available and easy to load with Garmins map installer (free). Would it be easier to spend a little more time learning to work with it? I'd be glad to try to answer any questions you have. I say this because I think you probably already have the unit you're looking for. To answer the other part of your question, I think the downside of using a phone for off-road navigation is dirt, water, and the general delicate nature of them. Plus sometimes they just get weird and quit working. My iPhone started randomly going from 60% battery to 0% lately, and I can't imagine relying on that in the woods. Or what about a shattered screen? Plus GPS can use batteries or charge off your power source, and something like the Montana is designed for rugged use.
