Want to share your coordinates with others? The GPSMAP 62st lets you transmit data wirelessly with compatible devices, and it supports geocaching GPX files for downloadable adventures without wasting paper.

See things more clearly

The 2.6" color screen on the GPSMAP 62st lets you check out the included maps with ease, even in direct sunlight. You can even download geotagged photos from the Internet and navigate to them.

Don't lose your place

The GPSMAP 62st 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. The handheld's 3-axis electronic compass and barometric altimeter help keep you on course.

The GPSMAP 62st offers 3.5 GB of onboard memory, so you can download additional topo, marine, and road maps with ease. It'll also accept maps via microSD™ card. You can even employ BirdsEye Satellite imagery with your optional subscription, allowing you to download satellite images to the GPSMAP 62st 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.

Garmin GPSmap st

Written By ADK Trapper, New York on Tuesday, April 07, 2015

I've owned this unit for alittle over a year before this I had the 60 and before that the E-Trex all of which I was happy with in there own way, I hunt the central Adirondack Mountains in upstate NewYork anywear from 4 to 7 miles back in the woods and nearest road even farther, the ST has performed flawlessly in weather from rain to white out snow storms. Thank you for a great product

Pros: From recorded tracks to the compas and recording waypionts I cant say enough about the accruacey of this unit

Cons: Pre installed 100k base map/ I use and prefer the 24K reason more detail and shadeing, if the unit came with that feature and cost alittle more I still would buy the st, I've owned three Garmin hand held units and keep upgradeing
