Explore the Terrain

GPSMAP 62st comes with built-in U.S. 100k topographic data for the continental U.S. or Canadian topographic data and a worldwide basemap with shaded relief — all the tools for serious climbing or hiking. Map detail includes national, state and local parks and forests, along with terrain contours, elevation information, trails, rivers, lakes and points of interest.

Get Your Bearings

GPSMAP 62st 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 GPSMAP 62st you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin device users. So now your friends can also enjoy your favorite 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 62st 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 62st 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 from Garmin or from DVDs such as  24K, 100K and Canadian topo maps and hit the trail, download or plug-and-play BlueChart® g2 for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT® map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. GPSMAP 62st 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 62st 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 analyze 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™. This one-stop site offers an activity table and allows you to view your activities on a map using Google™ Earth.

Find Fun

GPSMAP 62st supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. GPSMAP 62st stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Slim and lightweight, 62st is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits.
