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.

My new 62s unit received DEFECTIVE on 10/9/12

Hank L., Amazon
4 November 2012
  • Summary: I have previously been a satisfied four+ year Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx user for all my Arizona, NM, and CO on & off-trail day hiking. I was looking forward to owning the newer Garmin technology replacement for the 60CSx, which is the GPSMAP 62s.

Not for the novice

Will, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: Bought this expensive piece of kit as I enjoy hillwalking. I thought this would stop the need for paper maps as they can be a pain in the wind and rain. It probably will when I get use to it but I have to say that its not easy or intuitive to use, certainly not if you haven't used anything like this...

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

Zed_the_Shredder, Amazon
18 August 2012
  • 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.

Nice GPS, shame about the interface

Solar Installer, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: The device itself feels rugged and fit for purpose, the interface however does not. The menu system is possibly the worst example I have ever experienced. It is counter intuitive and different buttons seem to do the same thing.

Gerät ist top, Software leider nicht

Tester, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Was mir gar nicht in meinen Kopf will ist, dass es keine Abbiegehinweise beim Tracking gibt. Wenn das beim Routing funktioniert, sollte das doch für die Hersteller keine Problem sein, das auch beim Tracking mit einzu binden. Somit kommt man z.B.
