 Garmin's GPSMAP 62s is the model one step above the GPSMAP 62, and while it has many of the same features, it offers two upgrades. The first is a 3-axis, tilt-compensated compass which shows headings even while standing still, regardless of the units orientation. It also has a wireless sharing capability that allows waypoints, routes, geocaches and other information to be shared with other compatible Garmin units. Other features include a satellite lock-on feature and four-helix antenna, which keep the satellite signal even in thick cover, the ability to add maps to the included relief-shaded global basemap, and geocaching location and information support with GPX files.
