The Garmin GPSMAP 62st handheld GPS comes preloaded with Garmin TOPO 100K maps, giving you an excellent topographic overview of the entire U.S., including Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico; you can basically start exploring once you take the handheld out of the box. It also features a preloaded shaded worldwide basemap, plus an electronic compass and barometric altimeter to help guide you. A rugged waterproof housing combats the elements. 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.
Big-time memory for more maps
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.
