Our Comment

The GPSMAP series from Garmin has always been one of the most popular handheld product lines and the new GPSMAP 64 series has built on that successs.

The GPSMAP 64s is very similar to the GPSMAP 64 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 unit enables unit-to-unit transfer and wireless connectivity to a range of compatible sensors such as Garmin's Heart Rate Monitor and live tracking via Garmin Connect. Finally, smart notifications allows you to receive emails and text alerts from compatible smartphones.

All-in-all we feel that the 'S' represents the best of the GPSMAP 64 series, a good balance between price and the features offered.

The GPSMAP 64s comes prelaoded with a Topo Light Ireland and UK map which is adequate for most recreational purposes however it does lack the detail that you get with equivalent Ordnance Survey maps.

Furthermore it is no longer possible to get OSI 1:50K maps of the Republic of Ireland for the GPSMAP series from Garmin.

Currently the only handheld GPS devices on the market that offer OSI 1:50K maps of the Republic are the Active series from Satmap.

If you need detailed maps of the Republic, we highly recommend the new Satmap Active 20 and it is definitely worth investigating further.

Click here for details on the Satmap Active 20 or visit to find out more about the company behind these award winning devices.

Please note that maps from Satmap will not work on Garmin handheld GPS systems.
