1 year and 9 months later and I'm really frustrated with it. I think I bought a lemon. Almost everytime I'm out on a geocaching excursion I want to chuck it into the nearest trash can and be done with it. I'd buy something else but it's too expensive (I spent about $500 on it) and I'm afraid I'll purchase another lemon of a Garmin.
I loved everyone of my other Garmins: little yellow eTrex, Garmin GPS V, 60Cx. The 60Cx was reliable, durable and accurate. I was hoping the 62s was going to be a paperless version of the 60Cx, but it isn't.
The dashboard of the screen sometimes gets scrambled when I choose the Reposition Here option. I was told by a fellow member that my coordinates were consistently off. This really concerned me because we have a reputation for providing accurate coordinates (often (pre-62s) people leave logs commenting on how the coords were spot on). I told him I was using the averaging feature on my 62s. He said that the 62s doesn't always do a great job at averaging coordinates. He suggested using the "reposition here" feature instead. Since using it, I have had fewer coordinate issues (but not getting comments about how spot-on the coordinates are).
My keypad is wearing out. 2 years of average use (I use it probably every couple of weeks for a few hours) and it looks like this:
I can't use the compass because it won't calibrate. Fails every time on the third step, where I need to rotate the GPS from front to back. It use to work after several attempts but now, after updating the firmware it will not calibrate.
When moving towards a cache, the map sometimes shows me moving away from the cache. So I end up following the numbers instead. If the number of meters are decreasing then I know I'm moving in the correct direction.
