When the terrain gets tough, you can depend on the Garmin GPSMAP 62s handheld navigator to guide you through, with 3-axis tilt-compensated compass and barometric altimeter. Inspired by the powerful Garmin GPSMAP 60 series, this rugged and waterproof GPS combines high-precision accuracy with high functionality to brave the demands of any terrain you dare to tackle – wherever the adventure, whatever the activity.
Rugged, Full-featured Handheld GPS with Wireless Connectivity
Explore The Terrain
Garmin GPSMAP 62s features a 2.6-inch sunlight-readable colour screen with built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief, so you can navigate anywhere with ease. With photo navigation, you can download geotagged pictures from the Internet and navigate to them.
Get Your Bearings
Garmin 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, without holding it level. Its barometric altimeter tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude. View elevation and profile on the altimeter screen and you can even plot barometric pressure over time to keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
With Garmin 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, and let the games begin.
Keep Your Fix
With a quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction, Garmin 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 Garmin GPSMAP 62s to help you find your way when you need it the most.
Enhance Your Navigation
With space to store up to 2000 waypoints and 200 routes, Garmin GPSMAP 62s’s 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 Garmin GPSMAP 62s’s dashboard to show you the details you need on your adventure.
You can make an adventure out of almost anything, whether you’re climbing a mountain, taking a road-trip, cycling or going out on a boat. Now you can share your activities with friends, family and fellow explorers via Garmin Adventures. It’s a great way to show people where you’ve been and highlight your favourite places. You can add geotagged photos, YouTube® videos, geocaches and notes, then share your adventure via email and social media. Simply upload your activity via our free BaseCamp™ programme to get started.
Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. You can download regions of 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. In addition, 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.
Garmin GPSMAP 62s 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 Garmin 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.
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™.
