With its quad helix antenna and high-sensitivity, WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and HotFix satellite prediction, the Garmin GPSMAP 62s 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 the GPSMAP 62s to help you find your way when you need it the most.

The Garmin GPSMAP 62s has a built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass, which shows your heading even when you’re standing still, without holding it level. The 62s' 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.
