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.

$ Abuse

DrBig, Amazon
28 January 2011
  • Summary: I would not recommend Garmin at all because of their new software policy. I just bought my 2nd Garmin device, and I CAN NOT load already purchased software on it. Once Garmin software gets loaded on a GPS, it is tied to that particular unit FOREVER, and can not be transferred to a newer unit you may...

GPSMAP 62st... is junk

SPL43, Amazon
13 December 2010
  • Summary: I recently purchased the GPSMAP 62st from Amazon.com. The unit did not work properly right out of the box. It would not locate satellites, and kept shutting off after 30 seconds. I tried everything, call Garmin, they could not help me.

Poor, very poor

solomondogs, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a lot of money to spend on a piece of kit that will not download specific maps. The maps themselves are well over a hundred quid and nothing I did persuaded the thing to download onto the device, if Garmin can't get their downloads sorted out it really isn't worth spending the money, not...

When it works it's fine but how can it crash?

J. Schmuecker, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: Like my Garmin405 this is a great device if it works and you can live with the worst user interface possible. My biggest beef is that it crashes frequently and that makes a navigation device pretty unusable. Also, the Basemap software is worse than software I can download from the net.

  • Summary: ....but ill-thought out GPS device. Crashes often, is v frustrating to use and is well over-priced. Garmin used to make decent products and I've had many. This is their worst to date.

Routing geht gar nicht, Bedienung sehr umständlich

xxxxx, Amazon
12 December 2011
  • Summary: Für Straßennavigation ist das Gerät nicht geeignet, es fragt zwar immer, ob man Luftlinie, kürzeste Strecke oder schnellste Strecke will, aber nur die Luftlinie funktioniert, bei den beiden anderen tritt immer nach 10 Sekunden Bedenkzeit ein interner Fehler auf.

Schlechter GPS Chipsatz - sehr ungenau

Slowfox, Amazon
30 June 2011
  • Summary: Ich benutze das Gerät nun schon seit Oktober 2010 und muss dieses mittlerweile als fast "unbrauchbar" (für meine Belange) einstufen. Features, Ablesbarkeit, Gehäuse etc. mögen alle subjetiv besser oder schlechter sein, als der Vorgänger, allerdings patzt das Gerät in einer Disziplin die für mich die...

Ungenaues GPS

VeggieBurger, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: Die Vorredner haben schon auf einige gravierende Mängel hingweiesen. Zudem ist der verbaute GPS-Chip zum Vorgänger-Modell leider ein Rückschritt und schießt öfter über das Ziel hinaus.
