garmin gpsmap62s maps

Hi All,

I have currently gpsmap 60csx and i want to change it with gpsmap 62s. My questions are:

1- can I use the same maps which I am using on my 60csx on a 62s? or does the 62s different type of map formats?

2- can I upload the maps using mapsource or do i need to use a new software?

any other comments about 62s appriciated.

thanks a lot!

yes and no !

yes they use the same maps and format... but... you have to buy a new set of software.. regarding the "licence" that comes with it... a generated key-no will be stored and marriage up in combination of the unit and the software and generate a new key, which only allows you to upload and use the maps with that particular GPS unit, no dual use possible for the same licence !
whoever, if you are using the miniSD memory cards which containing the pre installed maps you are able to swoop between the units without problems.

well that's my 1-penny to the greedy Garmin policy...
yeah with crunching teeth I'm still using a 60xc with all it's limitations and bugs.. and haven't spend on a 62s so far... rather cope with what I have...

thanks for your reply spooky.

i have bought the gpsmap 62s today from rei.com. they have a sale at the moment and the price of 62s is $270 (comparing to $449 on garmin website). huge bargain. now i am comparing it with my old 60csx. in any means it is fast! there are some bugs in the software, but, i an sure that this issues will be fixed. i'll have a weekend escape to cape cod and will try the new 62s and compare it with 60csx.

by the way, they both use the same format of map.
