Larry, August 6, 2012 This unit replaces the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx, which is one of
the best GPS's used for Search and Rescue purposes. With this
new unit, you can additionally subscribe to Birds Eye Topo
(24K) maps to match the 7 1/2 minute Quads and Birds Eye
Satellite Imagery. It also has a built in camera that can be
used to take a picture and have it saved as a waypoint. You
can also subscribe to Lifetime Maps to use the unit for
BK, May 18, 2012 A great GPS unit except for:
1. The battery life seems to be shortened with the camera
use compared with the previous 60 series unit it replaces
2. While the GPS is capable of holding an 8 GB MicroSD card
the GPS unit itself has a limit on the number of maps it can
store. I reached this limit and unfortunately was unable to
load all the maps I paid for and wanted to install. I assume
this may be applicable to all Garmin units.
3. It appears the more maps loaded, the slower the maps get
4. the lack of an external antennae hookup is disappointing
as I like to turn my machine on all day and keep it in a
ziplok bag in a pocket with the external antennae exposed to
gather track log locates while I am in heavy bush cover or
in rainy weather.
PP, March 15, 2012 I have been playing with my new GPSMAp 62 stc, very easy to
use, did not have a chance to test it out on a atv ride,
waiting for the snow to melt. Very quick to obtain
satellite info, love the different tools to navigate that is
provided, especially the re-calculate on the road.
RSTBC, September 27, 2011 I purchased this unit for work, we do a lot of trail work
and I wanted the ability to gps the trail, take photos of
issues along the trail, save the photos as waypoints and
download them as such. The new system of saving data in
two locations is cumbersome to deal with, normally we
return, hook into Google Earth and download all in one
shot, this unit has tracks, waypoints and photos stored in
seperate locations, so you must go and search for the
information, again cumbersome. I was going to return it
but I had it out in the field testing it and severly
scratched the screen (while in my pack), so I will keep
it. The screen issue is something else that should be
looked at, if it is that soft, maybe a protective cover
should be an option. As far as a GPS for route finding,
etc. it works as well as the 60 series in which it
replaces. I do NOT like the carabiner, much prefer the
belt clip option of the 60 series, moving through the bush
with this one banging around is not nice, not to mention
what may be happening to the sensitive viewing screen.
