Hit the trail

The Garmin GPSMAP 62 handheld is a great entry point to the joys of outdoor exploration. You can enjoy hours in the wilderness and get to know your surroundings without fear of getting lost with this rugged waterproof companion leading the way. It also supports geocaching GPX files so you can download adventures straight to your device, saving paper and giving you more time to search.

Garmin GPSMAP 62 handheld GPS

A big, bright display for maps and photos

The GPSMAP 62's 2.6" color screen lets you check out the included worldwide basemap with shaded relief, even in direct sunlight. You can even download geotagged photos from the Internet and navigate to them.

Reliable satellite reception

The GPSMAP 62 features a quad helix antenna and sensitive GPS receiver so it'll find you in a hurry and lock on to your position. You'll be covered in deep canyons and under thick foliage, or even when surrounded by skyscrapers.

Get more maps

The GPSMAP 62 offers 1.7 GB of onboard memory, so you can download additional topo, marine, and road maps with ease. You can also employ BirdsEye Satellite imagery with your optional subscription, allowing you to download satellite images to the GPSMAP 62 and integrate them into your maps. Garmin's Custom Maps feature lets you transform your old paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps you can transfer to the handheld, for extra backup.

Take the experience online

Register with Garmin Connect online and you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your handheld from your computer. You can also check things out through Google Earth, or explore trails blazed by other Garmin Connect users worldwide. You can even link to your social media accounts and share the fun. Garmin's free BaseCamp software lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks, as well as plan trips that you can share — all on your computer.
