Become and explorer
Its built-in basemap with shaded relief makes the GPSMAP 62s a valuable companion
wherever you go. Photo navigation allows you to download and navigate to photos from
Garmin Connect Photos.
Know where you are
A 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass is built in to your GPSMAP 62s, so
you’ll know your heading even if you aren’t standing still or holding it level. And
the barometric altimeter tracks pressure changes to give you an accurate altitude
reading. You can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which helps you
anticipate changing weather.
Your GPSMAP 62s allows you to share waypoints, tracks, geocaches and routes
wirelessly with other compatible Garmin devices. Just press “send” to transfer your
information to your friends.
Know where you are
GPSMAP 62s has a quad helix antenna that combines with high-sensitivity WAAS-enabled
GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction to determine your location quickly and
accurately, no matter your surrounding terrain.

and customize your GPSMAP 62s’ maps. Your device features 1.7 gigabytes of onboard
memory and you can download 24K and 100k topo maps for your day on the trails. If
you’re hitting the water, just insert BlueChart g2 preloaded cards. And if you’re
preparing for a road trip, City Navigator NT map data provides turn-by-turn

A geocacher’s dream
Your GPSMAP 62s can download geocaching GPX files. Your paperless geocaching not only
helps the environment, but makes your geocaching easier. GPSMAP 62s stores and
