Garmin GPSMAP 62s
Our take on the Garmin GPSMAP 62s by Crutchfield's Dominic Devito
Find your way
The Garmin GPSMAP 62s handheld GPS keeps you on the right track out of doors with its preloaded basemap, electronic compass, and barometic altimeter. Its rugged waterproof housing keeps it safe on the trail. It'll also allow you to share data wirelessly with similar devices so you can keep your geocaching group up-to-date with your latest explorations. Speaking of which: it also supports geocaching GPX files so you can download adventures straight to your device, saving paper and giving you more time to search.
A big, bright display for maps and photos
The 2.6" color screen on the GPSMAP 62s 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.
Get your bearings
The GPSMAP 62s 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.
Get more maps
The GPSMAP 62s offers 1.7 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 also employ BirdsEye Satellite imagery with your optional subscription, allowing you to download satellite images to the GPSMAP 62s 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.
