Its tilt-compensated 3-axis compass helps you get your orientation and points you towards your destination even when you're standing still or not holding the navigator flat, whilst the barometric altimeter enables you to track changes in atmospheric atmosphere to pinpoint your exact altitude. View elevation and profile on the altimeter screen and plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions. GPSMAP 62st features a 2.6-inch sunlight-readable colour screen with built-in European recreation map showing street level detail (approx 1:100,000 scale), so you can navigate anywhere with ease. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect Photos and navigate straight to the scene.
With a quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction, GPSMAP 62st has unparalleled reception to locate your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep valleys. The advantage is clear - whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on GPSMAP 62st to help you find your way when you need it the most.
With space to store up to 2000 waypoints and 200 routes, GPSMAP 62st's detailed route planning and tracking helps you navigate from point-to-point and keep track of your journey as you go.
