Not trusting it anymore

Roger, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • 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.

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.

Poor instructionsexplaining how to use it

Terry, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: The instructions explaining how to operate everything it can do are very poor. The people that program these things always think that a person knows how to operate it when actually all you know is how to turn it on.

Frustrating...

David M. Syndergaard "davesyn", Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: This is my 4th hiking/geocaching receiver, and by far the most irritating. I'm glad I kept my 60CSx, because it's far superior to the 62st in almost every way -- speed to acquire satellites, menu functions, and display.

A Good GPS But

bloom34, Amazon
12 August 2010
  • Summary: I recently purchased a garmin 62s GPS while this GPS is packed with wonderful features it is the first Garmin product that I may send back.

GPS OK BUT MAPS SUPPLIED A WASTE OF TIME

Robert Hillier, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: GPS OK BUT MAPS SUPPLIED A WASTE OF TIME, FOR THE MONEY SHOULD AT LEAST HAVE SENSIBLE MAP INCLUDED, THEN WHEN YOU GO TO BUY MAPS YOU GET RIPED OFF AGAIN.

Mixed feelings but I won't be keeping it - underperforms compared to older models

Zed_the_Shredder, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: I have owned several Garmin hand held GPS models, starting with the etrex Venture CX model, a color microSD capable unit. That was a very capable GPS with great accuracy and it was very reliable.
