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.

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.

    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 24K and 100K topo maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). GPSMAP 62s 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 62s is compatible with Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.

    a good offer, people this is what you need when going hiking, not an iphone map!

    Also take a printed map at the best quality you can get for the area, ah and know how to use one.

    You can get Topo maps for the iphone but you really don't want to add something CPU intensive to kill your phone battery even quicker.

    how's the GPS on the iphone? I've been impressed by the Motorolla's - think it's a Google company now.

    Not really sure I've never owned one but if you had the maps preloaded it should work nearly as well as any stand alone GPS, some 4wders use the iPad with Hema offroad maps loaded on to them and they are supposed to work quite well.

    Sleep time, it's nearly 2am.

    GPS from RYDA January 10, 2014
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from VIC Australia
    Best price on the net. Ryda advertise flat rate shipping for $9.95, but this was bull manure because they shipped it for free at the check out, and it arrived the very next day, how good is that. Product was well packaged, and firmware was up to date, which is rare in Australia. So far I have added Tracks4Aus, Shonkey Maps, Garmin City navigator and Garmin Topo, all free from the net. GPS has been great. My previous GPS was Magellan Meridian which died after 10 years mounted on various trail bikes. The Garmin has a lot to live up to, but so far is doing well.
