This review is from: GARMIN GPSMAP 62st 2.6" Handheld Worldwide GPS Navigation
Pros: Never dropped signal yet on Hikes where other hikers GPS lost signal. Compass is highly sensitive and works great. Used it for geocaching and put me right within 5ft of the cache. You can see the screen during the daytime quite well compared to other GPS.
Cons: No issues with the unit itself, but Garmin documentation is not great. But there are a lot of GPS enthusiasts on the web and there are a lot of blogs that helped me figure out things like getting data onto the SD card (hint: mimic the GPS file structure than put things on the card).
Other Thoughts: So far I have used it for two Hikes. The Topos had detailed coverage of the first place I went and none of the second. The second was of a 9mi li greenbelt hike from Smithtown landing GC to sunken meadow and back which involved woods, public roads, beach, and wetlands.
Don't let the squeaking issue other reviews on some other sites have mentioned deter you. I don't notice it and this GPS seems pretty well built so I don't see any issue with the product integrity.
