          Comments about Garmin GPSMAP 62s Handheld GPS:

          I had a Map 76 c and this was a serious upgrade. Very easy to customise to my needs. The batteries don't seem to last as long as the Map 76c but I have not used it enought to be sure. easy to install maps. THIS WILL NOT WORK WITH MAPSOURCE, you must install Basecamp to work with the different maps and options. Basecamp not to hard to get use to using.

            Use this for finding geocaches and it's usually w/in a couple of feet. Much more accurate than the GPS in my phone.

            Used GPSFileDepot.com to get more detailed maps for free.

            Would definitely buy again and recommend to others.
