Best GPS for the Trail

I have used a GPSMAP 60cs for about 9 years so this GPSMAP 62st is a couple generations newer. I wanted to upgrade to get the better antenna and faster processer. Wow!! While the operation is very similar to the old 60cs so I was up and running with no learning curve, I found most of the functions cleaner and faster. It is so much faster acquiring satellites, and very quick moving from screen to screen. The tracks are very clean - no zigzagging to clean up when I download to my computer for future reference like I had to do on the 60cs. A sign of the better antenna and processor. Wish I had made the upgrade a few years ago. I considered the Montana and Oregon because the touchscreen seemed like it might be nice but I was quickly convinced the GPSMAP is still the best choice for every kind of weather, and outdoor activity. All touchscreens are a problem when wearing gloves or with cold/wet hands. The buttons on the 62st feel a little bigger than the old ones on the 60cs which worked pretty good with gloves or cold or wet hands. The 62st is smaller/lighter than the Montana - important for me when backpacking. And the screen is the same usable size as the Oregon so no screen advantage there. I was always happy with the clarity of the screen on the 60cs but the new one is even a little brighter. In the end, I decided the GPSMAP 62st is still the most rugged for my regular activities - backpacking, hiking, biking and paddling. All in all, this is a great gps for your outdoor activities. You can't go wrong with the GPSMAP 62st.

Still new

Still learning how to use it, seems to work great no matter how thick the trees are.
I find myself scouting further now because when I am done it brings me right back to the buggy.

Negative Reviews:

random shut off?

Got the device first of Sept.. Set it up. Loaded 24k my region. Scouting trip yesterday the unit shutdown twice when I hit either "mark" or "find". Right off the bat I lost confidence in this unit as I will be wondering whether it will choose to work or not?
While "do not rely on your sole means of navigation" are words to be heeded - it especially applies in this instance.
Going to return the unit to cabelas in an exchange and try a new one. I had a garmin 60 for years and loved it no issues at all. Just hope this is a random defect in this one particular device.
