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: 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.
Summary: Did extensive research for years before purchasing a handheld GPS. Originally considered the Gpsmap 60 series long ago. For my money, the 62st was easily the best cost / performance combination. I have been using a Gpsmap 276C in car and boat. Really like the technical reporting features of it and similar features of the 62st.
