GPS Tracklog Reviews the Garmin GPSMAP 62s

Garmin GPSMAP 62s I know I link to Rich Owings’s reviews on GPS Tracklog all the time, but I’ve been interested in the GPSMAP 62 since it was announced and was looking forward to his review of the GPSMAP 62s (the middle unit of the 62 series). Which turns out to be mixed: he had to go through three review units and a beta firmware update to address some surprising tracklog errors. “The GPSMAP 62s may not be the best unit out there, but give it a few more firmware updates and it could be. The 60CSx and Oregon both suffered quite a bit early on, and it took awhile to nail it. In a perfect world, this thing would be rock solid out of the box, but this review is long enough already, so I’m not going to delve any further into that can of worms.”
