Summary: Very impressed. It's my first handheld gps and I have used it several times while hunting this year. Very easy to use. I use mainly the topo maps, they're great and the detail is awesome. I climb some pretty rugged mountains and it shows all the ridges and hollows. Highly recommend.
Good product, lots of options for the money and it's simple to operate!

Summary: Great unit, after I registered it online I downloaded a couple updates including one for my topo cd that I purchased and everything went great after that. Easy to use unit, pretty self explanatory if you have some gps knowledge. I like the option of auto waypointing when you snap an image. Take a pic of a stream or a buck rub and it auto sets a waypoint if you desire it too! Good job Garmin, nice unit!
Summary: I do a lot of hiking in remote parts of the Southwest. I use my 62stc on direct navigation most of the time. I always input the GPS coordinates of where I want to go into the machine, hit find, push go and you are off to the races. Make sure to name your points. Makes it easier to find them. The 62 will point you in the right direction ever time, just make sure you calibrate the compass the minute you get to your destination, especially if you have traveled a long way.
Summary: The GPS map 62stc is a great gps. It works for my hunting and trapping needs in the Northwoods. I was a little upset that a brand new gps ( not used ) had dirt all over it in the package. But after I cleaned it up and registered it. It worked great and met my expectations. Hope it lasts me a long time the topographic 100k map is awesome and shows you everything plus it came with the gps!
Summary: I had to buy a new charger for this unit. The scratch on the screen is deeper than I thought and interferes with the viewing. However, the gps is functional and has served me well in the back country so far.
