Explore The Terrain
GPSMAP 62s features a 2.6-inch sunlight-readable colour screen with built-in worldwide base map with shaded relief, so you can navigate anywhere with ease.
Get Your Bearings
GPSMAP 62s has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which helps you get your orientation and points you towards your destination even when you're standing still. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your altitude. View elevation and profile on the altimeter screen and you plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With GPSMAP 62s you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS handhelds. So now your friends can also enjoy your favourite hike or cache - simply press "send" to transfer your information to similar units.
Keep Your Fix
With a quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction, GPSMAP 62s has unparalleled reception to locate your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep valleys. 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.
Enhance Your Adventuresn
With space to store up to 2000 waypoints and 200 routes, GPSMAP 62s' detailed route planning and tracking helps you navigate from point-to-point and keep track of your journey as you go. As you navigate to a destination on an active track, you can view upcoming elevation changes together with waypoints and key stages along the route for a clear picture of the journey ahead. And with customisable display, you can tailor GPSMAP 62s's dashboard to show you the details you need on your adventure.
Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. You can conveniently plug in Garmin GB Discoverer mapping for OS Explorer (1:25k) and OS Landranger (1:50k) detail and hit the trail. The traditional look and feel of the Ordnance Survey map detail complements Garmin's dynamic search capabilities. Use GPSMAP 62s to search, select and navigate to points of interest and street addresses and follow the route on foot, in the car or by bike with an Ordnance Survey backdrop. Add 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), which lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. See the terrain in terrific clarity and high-resolution detail with satellite and aerial imagery on your GPSMAP 62s. BirdsEye works with your BaseCamp planning software, onboard maps and points of interest to add real-world images of buildings, roads, trails, mountains and other land features.
The 62s is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device. Put your favourite paper or digital maps on GPSMAP 62s by converting details, labels and landmarks from other maps and informal plans like ski piste routes, mountain bike trails or charity treks into tailored content that's ready to navigate.
