Rated 4 out of 5 by OleHunter1958 Good, but not as good as 60C
The 62st functions as advertised as far as I've seen. I haven't tried the more advanced features such as the Birdseye Imagery. My biggest complaint is that I have all these other Garmin products that worked with the 60C that don't work with the 62st. Mainly, the Mapsource software where I had collected thousands of waypoints doesn't work with the 62st. The mapping software suggested is called Basecamp. I've tried working with it and I'm not impressed. I was told I'd be able to import my maps from Mapsource into Basecamp. That hasn't been the case. I've got a friend who just bought the Garmin Montana and he's got the same opinion of BaseCamp. However, both handhelds work fine in the field. I just think Garmin needs to work on their import process from their older Mapsource product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMMLLY multi use GPS
I bought this GPS for both use in the Colorado Rockies and on my boat. I was looking for a multi-use GPS without buying two. This has been fantastic. From navigating at Lake Powell at night to locating trails and points of interest while elk hunting. It does it all. Easy to use and rugged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taxlaw Great Unit
This GPS is one of the easiest that I have tried. It comes with a complete, well written instruction manual. Once you get it set up the display out performs other units in it's price range.
