but tends to lose accuracy when obstructed by certain types of trees like hardwoods. Also steep slopes sometimes affects it

  • Summary: Timber cruiser here. I load waypoints onto this unit from basecamp with ease. I can fit about 1500 waypoints on it. At one point I had 1000 waypoints, 25,000 POIs, and a downloaded TOPO map on it and it worked perfectly.

One of the best GPSr's I have ever owned

Ryanst, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned quite a few handheld GPSr's over the past 15 years. In total, about 20 units, 15 of which were Garmin's. I use them primarily for hiking and geocaching, and generally prefer durable, stand-alone GPSr's over a smartphone app. That said, I am quite impressed by the 62s.

Not trusting it anymore

  • Summary: I'm a Sailor and I got this unit for a hiking trip in Peru. The primary purpose was to record a track of every place we went to. I didn't need any of the other features that this unit has to offer.

Very nice handheld and works great.

  • Summary: I really like this handheld GPS for hunting and fishing. I merely switch the chip from land to marine. The best feature is maintain a signal lock in heavy foliage of trees when I swamps and heavy forests. I put it in my pocket and don't worry about losing a track.

Excellent GPS Device!

  • Summary: This is my first GPS device and I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. The learning curve was not a big deal, nor was installing and getting acclimated to Garmin Base Camp; the program that's used in conjunction with the GPS unit to view your tracks. Maps are also free..

Garmin 62s

Scott B., Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought the 62S to replace my 60csx that died (a circut controling some of the buttons evidently failed) after seven years of heavy use. I hope the 62s proves as durable. The menu structure of the 62s appears better organized than the 60csx. The paperless geocaching is a huge plus for me.

Good Midrange Handheld But Not Waterproof

Solovino, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: First and foremost, it has decent antenna. I was able to get a signal and mark within 18 feet inside the house. A outside test got me closer to 12 feet in comparison to 29 feet on the same marked waypoint of the same location with a Garmin Hcx, of 2007 vintage. Both set at WAAS.

Beautiful piece of equipment, but complicated to use

William H. Edwards, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: Previously I was using a Garmin 100. I was looking for a GPS which was more sensitive to receiving the satellite signals, but I was happy with readily accessible inform provided by my 100 which was simple to operate. The 62s has a maze of options, much more than I need.
