Summary: Don't get me started about how much I love this thing. I'm an archaeologist and I prefer the use of my own unit when allowed as opposed to glitchy old Trimbles. You can take points when needed and it has its own software to get it onto the computer.
Summary: We love our Garmin. We use it for camping and hiking officially, but have lately started enjoying it for geocaching. The maps are more than adequate to get you where you're going while hiking or driving. It can also be used to track top speed in car tests if you are so inclined.

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.
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.
