My organization is interested in the new Android-based Garmin Monterra as a (somewhat) inexpensive field data collection device.  Before we go and procure a test unit I'd like to find out if anyone else has tested Collector (either 10.2 or 10.2.2) on this device.  We are looking at the Monterra specifically for the ability to replace batteries in the field and the IPX7 rating, plus the lower overall cost as compared to some offerings from 'traditional' GIS/GPS data collector manufacturers such as Trimble.

Thanks in advance!

Works like a champ. Using the Monterra camera with collector is a little wonky....

Have you tried the Monterra? We also look at the monterra as an alternative to our older handhelds from trimble and nautiz (they run arc pad). I think the ability to use it as a normal garmin gps and then have the collector for arcgis running would be grate.

I would be glad to hear of all experiences, both good and bad!
