And with customisable display, you can tailor GPSMAP 62's dashboard to show you the details you need on your adventure.
GPSMAP 62 has a built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief. Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps, which can be loaded to internal memory.

I have had my Garmin 62s for a year now and am very pleased with it. It locks onto the satellites very quickly and is easy to use. It is used as a backup to map and compass. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Amazon Customer

2nd hand GPS. Compass doesn't work too well it allways point the wrong way. The rest is really nice.
2 stars because of compass error.
