Our Comment

The GPSMAP 60 series was one of the most popular handheld product lines from Garmin and the new GPSMAP 62 series has improved it's form and functionality.

The GPSMAP 62s is very similar to the GPSMAP 62 with a few extra features. First of all it has an electronic compass and barometric altimeter so you can get more accurate altitude reading. Secondly, the GPSMAP 62s accepts datacards so you can add larger maps that may not fit on the 1.7 GB of memory. Finally, you can share your information with another GPSMAP 62s using the unit-to-unit transfer feature.

The GPSMAP 62s can save up to 2000 waypoints and 200 routes, that's four times more that the GPSMAP 60. The battery life is not as long (20 hours compared to 28 hours) but that is mainly due to the colourful 2.6" display.

If would like all of that the GPSMAP 62s has to offer plus preloaded European Topo maps, then check out the GPSMAP 62st
