If you can live with the incredibly poor GUI of the 62s, you'll love it...
Geocaching since 2001 with almost 14,000 finds, hiking, backpacking, trekking to various places throughout the world, my Garmin 60CSx had proved reliable over and over again, but age began to take a toll and I decided to "upgrade" to the newer 62s. I knew what I was in for having read numerous reviews. I will say that the 62s hardware itself is pretty darn robust. The buttons are a bit more heavy-duty, along with the case, and especially the rear access door -- no tiny little plastic thingy that can easily break like on my old 60CSx. But as for the software -- it is an absolute and total DISASTER in my book. It appears that Garmin threw out everything good with the GUI interface on the 60 models and just started over from scratch with the 62 -- as though they didn't learn a darn thing over all those years. Just deleting a single waypoint on the 60CSx -- 5 keypresses. To do the same thing on the 62s -- 11 key presses!! What were they thinking?? Screen pixel count is identical on both the 60 and the 62, but they wasted so much precious pixel real estate on the 62 adding useless frames and boxes around text fields that take up 3 to 4 pixel widths. Why? Text resolution is a joke -- every character is blurry and hard to read on the 62s -- I guess they decided since the 60 used 256 colors and the 62 used 65K colors they'd take advantage of aliasing, so every text character has a "gray-ish" pixel shade along the edges, making all the characters appear washed out and fuzzy. Why? On the 60 you could delete waypoints by icon, so you could group them on your own for ease of use. Not on the 62 -- you either delete ALL your waypoints at once (BAM, they're gone!), or you delete them one at a time (11 keystrokes per delete as mentioned above). To turn on or off a set of maps on the 60, you just select the map and toggle it with one keypress -- if it was on, it's off -- if it was off, it's on. Not on the 62 -- you have to select which map you want to toggle, then get presented with ANOTHER dialog giving you TWO options -- enable OR disable. Couldn't they have just allowed you to enable or disable the maps when you actually select the map, same as on the 60? Want to edit a note or add some text? Go ahead, type away. But after say 30 characters and you realize you made a mistake at character 3 and missed a character, you have to scroll all the way back (one character at a time per key press since holding down the arrows won't automatically scroll across characters) and try to enter the missing character. But wait -- do the rest of the characters shift one place to the right to make room for the added character -- NO! You have to retype everything all over again from there onward. Why? I could go on and on -- there are at least 20 more poorly executed features in the 62's GUI that make using it an exercise in frustration. I will say that the new 2000 waypoint limit and the ability to store more tracks (without the 500 point limit per track), is a lot better. The USB interface on the 62 finally moved to version 2.0, so it's faster than the 60. The file structure is a little better -- you can now actually access the internal and external (SD card) memory from your computer. Redraw of maps appears to be faster. That's enough for now. Every time I think of how Garmin managed to mess up a perfectly good user experience on the 60 when they introduced the 62, it makes my blood boil. Idiots!! Read full review

Great assistant for field activity but has some bugs
The most pleasant feature for me is possibility to use raster maps with specific data. I like how this device keeps the satellites. Consumption of the batteries - more o less acceptable, near 12-14 hours of non-stop work for NiMH (Powerex Imedion 2400). But. At least my 62s has some bugs. Suddenly it changed consequence of waypoint numbers and steady persisted in the new order... Fun, but I don't like it. I did not catch how to load my raster maps separately: all in one package, I can't on/off the maps separately, only all together. If I open some archived tracks the GPS 62s does not show a part of current track... Sometimes joystick does not work properly. Etc etc. I just use it only a month, not mastered a lot, however I don't like so sophisticated and not very reliable interface.
