GPSr Units / Re: Turn tracking off on 62s?
« on: January 09, 2011, 10:09:02 AM »
Being new to a 62s myself, I would also like to know if there was a easy way of turning tracking off, as the unit seems to record all movements that I make.

Thanks LucaPCP, I never thought about the GPS aerial being directorial. As like you the unit will probably sit upright in one of the side pockets of my rucksack.

When I do purchase a new GPS, it will be interesting to compare it against my 24 year Garmin 38.

Yes I am in the UK. 62s is 269 and 60csx is 221 both on Amazon so not a great deal in it between the two price wise. I still reading reviews on the 62s, but I'm still interested in the 60csx.

Reading a few reviews of the newer 62s, there appears to be a few issues with battery indicator and barometer when pressing buttons, has anyone else found a issue with these items.

Hi, I'm new here looking to upgrade my old GPS unit.

My current unit is a Garmin GPS38 which i brought back in 1987 and has given me good service, but I do find it rather slow at getting a fix. This unit is always used in conjunction with a real OS map and is great for finding your location where the weather closes in up on the mountains. I also use it for marking obscure locations on open mountain.

So with this in mind I was looking for a new model, I like the Garmin and it is nice to see that the newer models still retain the use of AA battery's. Internal mapping is not that important to me but agree that it could be handy (If wind blows away my map over mountain edge). I'm more interested in being able to locate exactly where I am under poor weather conditions, and still get a signal in forest, plus be able to mark a particular site once I have found it.

I have been looking at the Garmin GMAP 60CSx Handheld which I know is a older model, but also been looking at the Garmin GPSMAP 62s. Do you think that the 62s with the newer chipset is worth having. Or I'm open to any other suggestions.
