Overview

When the terrain gets tough, you can depend on the GPSMAP 62 handheld navigator to guide you through. Inspired by the powerful 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.

Explore The Terrain

GPSMAP 62 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.

Keep Your Fix

With a quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS/EGNOS-enabled GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction, GPSMAP 62 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 62 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, GPSMAP 62’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 GPSMAP 62’s dashboard to show you the details you need on your adventure.

Explore, Record, Create and Share your Adventures

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.

Add Maps

Adding more maps is easy with Garmin's wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. You can conveniently plug in Garmin Eire Discoverer™ for OSi 1:50k mapping detail on your handheld or Garmin Birdseye™ Select Eire mapping for OSi 1:25k detail. Search, select and navigate to points of interest and street addresses and follow the route on foot, in the car with turn-by-turn routing 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 routing on roads in the Ireland, the UK and further afield (see maps tab for compatible maps). Or download customised sections of premium raster-based maps onto your device with BirdsEye™ Select and integrate them with your maps. In addition, the 62 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® 62 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. Plan your route, Survey the terrain, and geotag photos on your computer, then load the data to your outdoor device with our free downloadable software BaseCamp™
