    With the introduction of the GPSMAP 62s, Garmin has proven to the world that a value-priced GPS unit can possess high-end features. This handheld unit comes standard with a worldwide basemap and can easily be fitted with additional maps (not included) via download. 1.7 GB of internal memory provides plenty of space for file downloads and with photo navigation, you can easily download an image from the Internet and navigate to that exact spot. The electronic compass features a 3-axis design, compensating for tilt and helping you see where you are going, even while standing still. The barometric altimeter helps this unit track your precise location, using changes in barometric pressure. This feature also allows you to keep an eye on ever-changing weather conditions by tracking barometric pressures over time. Featuring 2000 waypoint capability, marking favorite spots just became much easier. The GPSMAP 62s is paperless Geocaching and custom map friendly and supports BirdsEye satellite imagery (subscription required). Geocaching just got a lot easier as well, with paperless caching. This allows you to have up to the minute information such as location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions. Gone are the days of manually typing in coordinates and printouts. You'll never have to worry about wet weather ruining your unit. With its weatherproof design, the GPSMAP 62s will stay dry and functional and is submersible up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. The GPSMAP 62sis best powered by lithium AA batteries. The GPSMAP 62s is also compatible with City Navigator software for auto-routing navigation. This handy little unit also features hunt/fish calendars, tide tables (optional Bluechart) and sun/moon information, to give you the best data for your hikes, hunts and fishing trips. The quad helix antenna ensures maximum reception for up to date and accurate navigation and marking of favorites. The GPSMAP 62s can also be connected to a computer with Internet to connect to Garmin Connect. This handy feature allows you to track your activities and routes and share via Facebook and Twitter.
