When the terrain gets tough, you can depend on the GPSMAP 62s handheld navigator to guide you through, with 3-axis tilt-compensated compass and barometric altimeter. 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 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
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 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, 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 Navigation
With space to store up to 2000 waypoints and 200 routes, 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 GPSMAP 62s’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.

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.
