A Very disappointing GPS Unit

Tootovi, Amazon
28 March 2014
  • Summary: I own the older version GPSmap 60CSx. I thought the 62St hoping for an improved version; it does have more memory capacity. However, I was VERY disappointed in the 62St and returned it. The 60CSx is FAR superior. The St has a lousy screen, not nearly as sharp as the 60CSx. The 62St has no external power input. Thus if you are driving on back roads with your GPS you must burn your batteries. The 62St is a prime example of the true meaning of "new and improved.

Pretty screen, poor performance

Seismic Pirate, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit for multiple uses-mainly hunting and geocaching. I'm appalled at the accuracy, precision and performance of this model. Multiple way-points on a location vary by 10's of meters consistently and often 100's of meters or more (poor precision). Matching known points against a topo and my other GPS units show some points are just plain always wrong (poor accuracy). The compass constantly swings up to 180 degrees out, moving or at rest.

$ 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 buy. You have to buy a SECOND COPY of the software & install it again, that's right, two copies of the same software on your computer.

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. Finally I call Amazon for a RA, and sent the unit back the next day. Amazon was execellent! They gave me credit over the phone with no questions. I went back to Amazon and ordered the Garmin Oregon 550t GPS. It works great.

Poor, very poor

solomondogs, Amazon

  • 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 very impressed. I would stick with your iphone as hideous as they are, at least the maps are cheap to download(and exactly the same i.e OS maps) .

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. At this price tag I expect well working software and devices.

Fine for American fishermen looking for a burger...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • 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. It is entirely geared towards the US recreational market but is generally useless for anything more demanding, such as desert or mountain use. If you wanna find a gas station, burger joint or somewhere to get your nails done whilst on a hike through the Rockies, you'll be ok..

GARMIN GPS randonnée GPSMAP 62st

Simonin, Pixmania
15 September 2013
  • Excerpt: J'ai du annuler mes rando. faute de carte: livraison non reçue sous 10 jours comme promis, aucun suivi colis, pas de réponse a mon courriel, ni téléphone disponible. Finalement un courriel informel 40 jours plus tard me disant que ma commande est annulée car ma banque aurait refusée le payement (40 jours plus tard? N'ayant jamais eut de soucis avec ma banque ... ayant effectue d'autres achats online ...) Dommage c'est un super produit mais sans les cartes ...
  • Pros: maniable, robuste
  • Cons: Le service cartes chez Garmin France manque de professionnalisme.

Die Software ist ja wohl die Katastrophe!!!

Morph, Amazon
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Hallo erstmal zusammen. Ich habe nach langem hin und her jetzt doch die Entscheidung gefällt ein Garmin zu kaufen. Haupteinsatzgebier wäre für dieses Ding MTB Touren aufzeichen und Geocaching. Das 1. (Also Tracking) macht es noch einigermasen korrekt, wobei man schon sagen muss das sogar da die Genauigkeit ja unter aller Kanone ist.

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. Alles, was ich bei meinem alten eTrex mit ein oder zwei Klicks machen konnte, braucht jetzt mindestens zehn Klicks, die Bedienung des Geräts ist unbrauchbar. Die Oberfläche ist schön bunt, aber was nützt mir das?
