4.0 out of 5 stars It is a good alrounder, 15 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin GPSMAP 62S Handheld GPS Navigator (Electronics)
The garmin GPSmap 62s was next in line to replace the old garmin quest I had.
As a frequent Garmin user I am very familiar with the mapsource mapping program, however this program becomes old and is replaced with Basecamp. This required from me to relearn how to map with garmin. The gps unit has been used on many places (MTB, Car, sailing and hiking/geocaching). Paperless geocaching works nicely, for MTB I bought the heartrate sensor and use garmin connect to keep track of my training. In the car it can route, however not as good as dedicated automotive GPS systems.

Advantages:
Good system, very good reception
Works fine with openstreetmap and topo maps
uses AA batteries

Disadvantages:
Buttons show wear after 1 year of use, had not with 5 years of using my quest
Not as good as automotive gps in car, but ok enough for me

Other thoughts:
Garmin bike holder must be avoided, get ram mount instead
