Pretty screen, poor performance. OK for geocaching.

Summary: I bought this unit for multiple uses-mainly hunting and geocaching. I'm appalled at the accuracy, precision and performance of this model. Multiple way-points on a location vary by 10's of meters consistently and often 100's of meters or more (poor precision).
If you can live with the incredibly poor GUI of the 62s, you'll love it...

Summary: Geocaching since 2001 with almost 14,000 finds, hiking, backpacking, trekking to various places throughout the world, my Garmin 60CSx had proved reliable over and over again, but age began to take a toll and I decided to "upgrade" to the newer 62s.
Summary: Bought it to replace an Etrex 100 which worked ok but I lost it. Wish I had bought an Etrex 30 instead. This is bigger and heavier. Its logic is illogical- fathoming how to do what should be straightforward tasks is ridiculous.

Summary: The shop replaced my first unit. The second has lasted a couple of years. I'm not buying a 3rd. If you've got the micro SD card loaded correctly,which you have to buy separately, racking the price up (mine cost £400) then the map comes up in amazing detail.

Summary: I'm a biologist based in Tanzania and have used Garmin products for many years in testing conditions, I was disappointed to find that on a recent canoeing survey this GPS is not waterproof and after getting wet for a few days just stopped working. Not just moisture but water in the unit.
Summary: I bought this for geocaching and having loaded the recommended software to pc it turned out be not compatible with windows explorer 11. On line user manual is very poor. After hours of searching a friend put me on to geoching.com user forums and others have had same problems.
Summary: Die Eingabe im PC sah unser Handy (Noka 2 Sim Karten) vor und verwandelte jedoch die Bestellung automatisch in ein anderes Format. Dies kontrollierten wir nochmal, als wir die Lieferung enttäuscht auspackten.Klar, dass es nicht gepasst hat.
Summary: Bis auf die bekannten Firmwareprobleme funktioniert das 62s immer noch besser als die meisten anderen Garmingeräte. Top Empfang, klasse Display, tolle Bedienung über die Wipptasten, lange Laufzeit. Garmin setzt leider mehr auf die neueren Modelle.
