    The newly designed Garmin GPSMAP 62s handheld navigator features a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass, a barometric altimeter and supports Custom Maps, BirdsEye™ Satellite imagery (subscription required) and photo navigation. Rugged and waterproof, GPSMAP 62s employs a quad helix antenna for unparalleled reception, has a high-speed USB connection, a sleek new design and connects wirelessly to compatible Garmin handhelds.

    Garmin GPSMAP 62s comes with built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief, so you can navigate anywhere with ease. With photo navigation, you can download pictures from Garmin Connect™ Photos and navigate to them.

    Get Your Bearings
    Garmin GPSMAP 62s has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you're standing still, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude, and you can even use it to plot barometric pressure over time, which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.

    Share Wirelessly
    With Garmin GPSMAP 62s you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin device users. So now your friends can also enjoy your favourite hike or cache – simply press “send” to transfer your information to similar units, and let the games begin.

    Keep Your Fix
    With its quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, GPSMAP 62s locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear – whether you're in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on GPSMAP 62s to help you find your way when you need it the most.

    Add Maps
    Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. With 1.7G of onboard memory, you can conveniently download 24K and 100K topo maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT® map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). GPSMAP 62s also supports BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. In addition, the 62s is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

    Get Connected
    You've been busy exploring and now you want to store and analyse your activities. With a simple connection to your computer and to the Internet, you can get a detailed analysis of your activities and send tracks to your outdoor device using Garmin Connect™.
