Summary: Each user has unique adventures in mind when shopping for GPS systems. The GPSMAP 62 offers a high-sensitivity receiver, good battery life, worldwide basemap, geocache-friendly features and a high level of accuracy. It lacks things like SD card compatibility, a barometric altimeter and an electronic compass.
Excerpt: Garmin’s GPSMAP 60 series is practically the standard by which all other handheld GPS devices are measured, at least at the enthusiast level. The product was released about five years ago and still is popular today, so you can bet its follow-up is a pretty big deal. That follow-up is the GPSMAP 62 series, specifically the 62 ($350), the 62s ($450), and 62st ($550).
