Pros Long battery life
Accepts external memory
Easy to use interface
Works well in light
Cons Small screen (which is also why the battery life is pretty good) give one take another.
Price is a little high if you ask me.
Summary Overall I found that no GPS is perfect and the technology itself has a long way to go. Each person will have different ideas on what is crtical for them to make a purchase.
I reviewed the entire thing at http://borbon.us/wp/?p=173
Pros nice color display
Cons Doesn't connect to DNR Garmin - doesn't offer the 62S as selection when registering on my.garmin.com - downloads tracks, but not waypoints - downloaded owners manual offers virtually no information concerning downloading data directions or problems.
Summary Since I need to work in GIS, I am returning this model to REI tomorrow and getting one of the other Garmin models that will connect to DNR Garmin - personnel in store know little to nothing about GPS receivers, there is scant helpful info on the Garmin website, or online, that I have found - the Garmin 62S is just pretty pictures, not a useful tool, with an instruction manual short on info and poorly-written.
