5.0 out of 5 stars 62s ideal for your own maps 22 July 2010
I have used a GPS system out on the trail for many years, but wanted a unit to use with my own maps, and with a good battery life.
This is a sturdy unit, and the buttons are also large and positive which allows easy use with gloves.
The screen is clear in sunlight and the maps are easy to read. Also waterproof. It connects with USB to a computer, lead included.
The maps supplied are the UK OS full set at 1:50000 The equivalent of the old 1" series and the ideal for national coverage.
The micro SD card that includes them needs to be inserted in the holder underneath the battery. After that they are simply there to be used.
I downloaded the free vector map for Europe and this installed without any problems.
I have used the shareware program mapctomapc to calibrate my own jpeg map images, create a kmz file, and then upload them to this unit without any problem. The same kmz maps display on google earth so are easy to check.

The only negative is the restriction that Garmin places on raster maps. You are limited to 100 map tiles at any one time, and a maximum jpeg image size of 200 Mb. However you can switch maps easily with a portable computer. A map could be 100 tiles along a linear route or the course of a river etc. or several separate groups of tiles. Do go to the garmin website and add a request for this restriction to be removed.

There doesn't seem to be any limit to using your own vector maps, and excellent free ones are available for many countries.
As a functional unit this is possibly the best there is at the moment.

So far I haven't managed to lose the satellite signal in deep forest - unlike my previous unit.
It saves its tracks as GPX format. Display on Google Earth with ease. No other software needed.

You can use UK postcodes to locate a point as well as address, grid coordinates etc.

A well deserved 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good with Ordnance Survey Maps 23 Sep 2010
I don't know a huge amount about GPS systems. I did have an old (early model) Garmin that now seems like it came out of the Ark. It was also useless under trees etc!

My principal reason for buying was the good reviews and the fact that I can have the whole of the UK OS maps with me when I travel. This means that wherever I am, I can try out footpaths as I come across them. The 62S seems well built and rugged and personally I prefer the rubber buttons to operate it than the touchscreen on some other models. On unpacking it the quick start guide isn't the most useful and you need to find the full manual either online on Garmin's website or on the device itself when connected to your computer. Once you've worked out how to put the micro SD card with the OS maps into the back (under the batteries a bit like putting a SIM card in a phone) it is fairly straightforward.

If you then download 'BaseCamp' from Garmin's website you can then access the OS maps on your computer (when the device is connected) and plot routes etc and transfer them to the device. Printing the OS maps from BaseCamp is disabled due to license restrictions which seems a tad pointless as there are dozens of screen capture utilities that let you print what is on your screen. So you can plot your route or download suitable ones from the web and import (I downloaded and imported .gpx files no problem) into BaseCamp, transfer to the device and also print a paper copy (via a screen capture utility) of the OS maps.

It seems to hold the signal very well and seems to do the job well. The screen is bright and clear and battery life seems fine.

By Amazon Customer TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
First a confession: I am a Garmin fan. I previously had a eTrex Legend and when I had problems, Garmin customer support was excellent. I did say in previous reviews that when I came to replace the eTex, I would probably buy another Garmin and, yes, I did.

Now a bit about this device.

From the top:

Startup is slower than my previous model (I guess it is all to do with loading up maps), but once started it seems to lock on immediately.

Maps, being raster rather than vector, can also be a bit slow to load, but once loaded, they are fine. You do get to see the real OS map on the screen (the screen shots with this device don't show this - maybe a copyright issue???), so it is very easy to pick out new routes "on the hoof" depending on your mood as you walk along.

It must also be said that this Garmin is for walking / cycling. You can use it in the car, but the route guidance is not that great and you would do better to buy a device meant for the car rather than this model (and for much less than this model).

Battery life is excellent.

Plotting a track is good, however I must say that I prefer the old "Track and Waypoint Manager" rather than the newer "Basecamp". Maybe that is because I am using the tracklogs OS mapping software which allows me to print off OS maps on A4, so I don;t need to see the OS maps via Basecamp.

I have loaded up KMZ files scanned from paper maps (for Greenland where is no Topo map available - just bought the paper maps and scanned in the areas I needed). These seem to be good, but I will know in a few weeks time when I try using them in Greenland (where the magnetic variation is over 30 degrees) - will be interesting to see how the electronic compass copes with this.
