  • Summary: haven't been able to down load the proper program to let me down load just one cache. I am now using windows 8.1. I can down load larger groups thru GSAK with no problem.

  • Summary: Works great for my needs, not sure if altimeter is exact but fairly accurate with regards to location. Hunting maps purchased at additional costs work well in device.

  • Summary: Expensive, but works right out of the box. This one had the topo map, so didn't have to pay extra and get frustrated trying to download maps. Not really any instructions in the box, but after a couple of weeks of playing around was able to program it for what I needed and use most of the features that I wanted.

More accurate than the maps it comes with

A. Gruenenwald, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Yes, the interface is rather clunky as others have pointed out, like the Page and Quit buttons (which are used for Next... and Prev...) should be better arranged, and it is rather a hassle to go through the menus to turn tracking on and off if you do it frequently. Other than that it has excellent reception and accuracy.

Still learning

Mr. Gibbs, Amazon

  • Summary: I am a GPS novice, but I appreciate things of quality so I sprang for this one. it is fairly intuitive and easy to use out of the box. It improves by leaps and bounds with the purchase of the micro sd cards for it. I have been on some short hikes with this, and it is very fun and useful to have around. I am looking forward to some longer hunting and backpacking trips this fall/winter.

Excellenct Geocaching Unit

Anon, Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: This GPSMAP 62st is the best unit in my opinion for geocaching. It's accuracy is to within 3 yards even without WAAS and is very manageable with caches and system information. The few negatives are having to calibrate the altimeter and compass each time you need to replace batteries, and it is only 500MB so if you need the space you'll be investing in a MicroSD card.

Garmin could have spent more time in making it simple not complexed !!

mtndogs4play, Ebay

  • Summary: Unlike the Garmin 60 which is still a better unit, the Garmin 62st seems to be made more like a car unit, not a mobile hand held unit should have been made. There is more downs than ups to this unit for the price you pay. They could have made a much better unit it they would have spent more time in make it more simple to use as a mobile device, than trying to make into a complex unit like an I-Phone.
