Pretty disappointed, actually

Baker, Lewis, Schwisow & Laws, PLLC, Amazon

  • Summary: Pretty disappointed, actually. Got this to do Geocaching with, and my iPhone actually seems to be more accurate. Also, the unit as shipped contained instructions that are now obsolete based on the software in the unit and based on how Geocaching now works. All in all it was not worth the price, in my opinion.

Worst Garmin product I've ever owned! Inaccurate and can't find North.

Mark, Amazon
10 January 2015
  • Summary: After using it on a few hundred hikes now, I still have not come to like it. I've had Garmin GPS's before and was extremely satisfied, but this model has dampened my enthusiasm for anything Garmin. Using the automatic setting, the Trip Computer reads a full 19% too high! If you do a hike in which the track reads 10.0 miles the Trip computer will show 11.9 miles. Completely unacceptable!

  • Summary: I love Garmin. I am a little dependent on GPS now, but I do take more of an effort to read the landmarks in case GPS stopped. This GPS is always on my strap of the back pack, ready to tell me all the data I need and has more if I want it. The battery lasts a good 20 hours in the mode I use it. Maybe even more than that. I only wish I could easily down load the data to my computer for viewing later. You need a special program to decode the format to windows.

Great GPS.

  • Summary: Awesome GPS. Only complaint is putting in driving directions is a pain. Great for hiking and motorcycling though. Buy regular GPS for directions. Buy this for outdoor adventures. Great on my motorcycle. Would recommend.

Not worth the money

Dan Jahnke, Amazon
12 November 2014
  • Summary: Purchased the 62st, loaded all my way points, within a short period it froze up and Garmin would not help in the least to unlock it. Apareantly there is a code that is needed, that I did not have and without that code they would not help me. Now it's a $600.00 paper weight.

Where am I?

  • Summary: I've had a few Garmin GPS over the years and I think they are the best civilian units. This unit has a nice bright color screen. Easy to use. Solid construction and will survive most outdoor trips.
