Installing AA Batteries

Instead of the included lithium-ion battery pack (Installing the Lithium-ion Battery), you can use three AA batteries with an optional AA battery pack (not included). This is useful when you are on the trail and cannot charge the lithium-ion battery pack. Garmin® recommends lithium AA batteries for best results.

NOTE: The optional AA battery pack is compatible with the Montana® 700 device only.
  1. Turn the D-ring counterclockwise to remove the lithium-ion battery pack from the Montana 700 device.
  2. Slide the latch to open the AA battery pack.

  4. Insert the AA battery pack into the back of the device, turn the D-ring clockwise, and press the D-ring flat against the back of the device.
  5. Hold Power button.
  6. Select Setup > System > Battery Type.
  7. Select Alkaline, Lithium, NiMH, or Precharged NiMH.

To prevent corrosion, remove the batteries from the battery pack when not in use, and store the battery pack in a dry location.
