Summary: This is the evolution of the GPSMAP 60 series. First the 60sc, then the 60scx with improved SIRF reception technology, and now the 62s(tc), with improved screen navigation. This is heavier than some of the other Garmin handhelds; however, it is more rugged, suitable for hiking, climbing, etc. It will transfer existing maps and file information using mapsource, and basemap. Reception is meager at times with the 60sc.
Summary: I just spent a week in the woods with this. It gets signal a LOT faster than my Rino 120. I used rechargeable batteries and I never had to charge them the whole week. Keep in mind I only had it on when I was going from one hunting spot to another or hiking (upwards of 5 miles a day) while searching for new hunting spots. It performed flawlessly. Does everything I wanted it to do.
Summary: Having used both Magellan and Garmin products, my choice for an upgrade is the GPSMAP 62S. A new standard, this unit is great in the field, and its electronic compass is un-surpassed. I had no need for a camera in my GPS, as most of us have camera's in our smartphones, nor were the topo maps a necessity, so this model Garmin is ideal for the trail and for geocaching.
Summary: After reading many of the reviews here, I was expecting to have some issues with the 62s, but I went ahead and bought it because a friend had one and it passed his high standards. So far, I've only had one small problem with it. I got the 62s to replace my 60csx because I wanted a better device for geocaching. In that regard, it is a vast improvement over the 60csx. I used to have to take my smart phone with me and use both devices to find a cache.

Summary: I use this to track hikes and find geocaches and often find myself bushwhacking. This GPSr has a solid feel and hasn't gotten a scratch on it, though I I'd recently add a ZAGG shield to help keep it that way. The only real problem is with the accompanying software. Garmin does a decent job, but they could use incremental indexing to speed up boot times. The more waypoints and tracks you have, the longer it takes to boot.
Summary: I purchased this GPS device after breaking the screen on my Dakota 20...which I loved. I did a lot of research and kept coming back to the GPSMAP 62s. This has the best features of the Dakota and GPSMAP 60 series. It's user friendly, accurate, durable and the screens/profile can be personalized to your needs (automotive, hiking, geocaching, etc..). I would recommend this GPS device to anyone interested in the outdoors. I love it and always have it within reach.
