Summary: I thought I would save money buying a used one of these. It was not like the one pictured. Mo color display, not very accurate. I don't really use it because it's not reliable enough. Back to map and compass, and my phone when I'm close enough to a town for that to work.
Summary: When I purchased this product I read the description wrong and thought it was the 62S. I was a little disappointed when I received the product and was quickly going to return it for the model I wanted. I turned it on and began to try it out and I ended up keeping it.
Summary: I can't get over how well the 62s gets a satellite signal...even indoors! I'm in my home office with a couple of small windows and just turned on the unit, after having it turned off for a couple of weeks: It booted and acquired the first satellite in less than 60 seconds and can navigate in less...
Summary: Got the GPS the first day, since day one, it had problems acquiring the GPS signal. I updated the firmware thinking that it would fix the problem and for my surprise the problem didn't go away.

Summary: I will begin this by saying that I am 50+, and I am NOT “tech-saavy”… therefore I want to avoid Tech-hassles wherever possible. However, I am logical and I am intelligent… so I usually can work my way through difficult tasks, eventually.

Summary: This is my second GPSMAP 62. Love It. These units are great in the field and trounce my older eTrex and other Garmin hand-held units. One thing this one seems to do better than most is acquire under tree canopy which essential for my work.
