Get Your Bearings
Garmin GPSMAP 62sc has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. 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.
With Garmin GPSMAP 62sc, you can share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible Garmin device users. So now your friends can also enjoy your favorite hike or cache — simply press “send” to transfer your information to similar units, and let the games begin.
Document Your Journey
With the Garmin GPSMAP 62sc’s built-in 5 megapixel autofocus camera, you’ll be able to capture the highlights of your outings. Each photo is automatically geotagged with the location of where it was taken, allowing you – or those you share your photos with – to easily navigate back to that spot in the future.
Keep Your Fix
With its quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix® satellite prediction, Garmin GPSMAP 62sc locates your position quickly and precisely and maintains its GPS location even in heavy cover and deep canyons. The advantage is clear — whether you’re in deep woods or just near tall buildings and trees, you can count on Garmin GPSMAP 62sc to help you find your way when you need it the most.
A worldwide basemap with shaded relief comes installed, but adding even more maps is easy thanks to Garmin’s wide array of detailed topographic, marine and road options.
