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.
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: Its works really good but the software to support the Caribbean is not supported and the local dealer charge me more than i payed for the item. I really thought they would of included it but its a money making thing.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: This is an outstanding device. Easy to use features like area computation, way points, routes, compass, etc. Simple buttons make it easily workable with gloves. Water resistant and rugged. Long battery life.
