The Garmin GPSMAP 62sc is a Rugged, full-featured GPS handheld that has a 5-megapixel autofocus digital camera. With a 2.6-inch sunlight-readable colour screen it's ideal for all your outdoor adventures.
Get Your Bearings
When the terrain gets tough, you can depend on the GPSMAP 62sc handheld navigator to guide you.
