Lucas LDS, October 21, 2012 I got this gps mainly for hunting, so I wondered if it
worked in the woods. and it works GREAT in the woods. never
lost a signal.
I got lost and this unit helped me find my way, the free
topo map i downloaded helped.
that same trip I walked through a river (knee deep) but
managed to trip and got soaked up to my chest. the Gps was
in my pocket. I was a little worried but I hit the power button (to put on the back light) and it showed me where I
People don't like the manual, but I didn't need it what so
Ralph, July 13, 2011 This is my second review of this unit, & now that I have
used it more if there was a 0 rating that's what it would
get from me.
I use it only for geocaching,
Yes,it has good directional abilities & will take you to
posted coordinates, but that is all the praise it gets from
me, other than it is paperless.
Far,far too many button pushes to navigate the paperless
features & then back to map or compass. How long before this
Can't delete individual caches like you can on the 60CSx.
Caches can only be deleted in bulk when connected to the
Can't access any of the features when connected to the
computer ( mass storage mode ) like you can on the 60CSx.
Can't change coordinates for puzzle caches without doing a
separate POI very poor.
Frequently wont accept my input that I have found a cache &
I have to repeat the process several times
Extremely poor on line manual-you don't even get a manual
booklet with the unit..Without help from more savvy
technical friends I would not have even been able to use it.
While caching, without touching any buttons, it will
frequently go to MOB.
When this piece of crap quits working I will get a 60CSx &
go back to paper.
COME ON GARMIN, we shouldn't have to take a course to be
able to use this unit.
Make a unit that has the features of a 60CSx & is paperless.
I'm sure there are other features that I don't like, but I
think you get the idea.
These features will apply to the 62s & 62st also.
Knitting Chick, June 8, 2011 My GPS is used exclusively for Geocaching. When I started
out I had a Garmin eTrex GPS and absolutely loved it, so it
was hard to get one that would measure up to it. The only
reason I wanted to upgrade was to the paperless option and
better readings under tree cover. This one took a bit of
getting used to. At first I wanted to drop kick it into the
nearest puddle and go back to my eTrex. But persevered and
now quite like it. The screen is a nice size and very clear.
Very accurate under tree cover and the battery life is
excellent. Good solid unit. Although, more cumber sum to
operate, once I got the hang of the settings and how to
maneuver thru the compass and cache info I was home free.
This was achieved with precisely no help from the user
guide, which is pretty much useless.
My biggest gripe with these units are the fact there are no
maps which, for the price is ridiculous! I have to spend
another $100.00 to get a map of my area, where I could buy a
navigation GPS for my car for $100 and get tons of maps
already included. Irritating.
Otherwise, this one will be around for the duration of my
Bush Creatures, September 23, 2010 I'm another 60CSx fan who despised my constantly locking up
Dakota and thought the Oregons and Colorados were stunned
when I used them. The 62 is the best of both worlds. Never
had a GPSr that takes me so directly to the cache. Of
course, paperless is great and I'm glad Garmin brought back
some features of the good old 60CSx like show finds by
calendar date. Touch screen on the Dakota was handy but
also a pain as I was constantly locking and unlocking the
screen as it did all sorts of stuff by itself while packing
it in a pocket or something. Best GPSr I have ever owned
and this is my 7th Garmin.
