 Garmin's GPSMAP 62st is essentially the same handheld unit as the GPSMAP 62s, as it has exactly the same basic features with the added bonus of a continental United States topographical map with state, national, and local park information, terrain contours and elevation information, along with points of interest. This feature gives the unit a significant price increase. Other than that, it still uses a quad-helix high-sensitivity antenna, supports wireless sharing with other compatible Garmin units, and locks onto satellite paths to avoid dropping reception even in heavy cover. It also includes the 3-way tilt-compensated compass. One downgrade is that this model has 500MB of on-board storage as opposed to the GPSMAP 62s' 1.7GB.
