Whether you are about to embark on an expedition to the ends of the Earth or a more subdued day hike, the Garmin GPSMAP 64s has features you will appreciate. This GPS unit's 2.6" screen lets you easily navigate through its many features as well as its worldwide basemap featuring shaded relief and satellite photos. A 3-axis compass is built-in so you will always know your heading. An altimeter lets you know how far you are above sea level, and can help predict weather trends. The unit runs off two AA batteries or the optional rechargeable NiMH pack.
Purchase of this unit also includes a 1-year subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery. This service provides you with up-to-date aerial images of the terrain you are navigating so you can plan the best route. This also allows you to find parking areas, trailheads, and possible places to camp. These views are also useful for geocaching activities.
This unit utilizes both GPS and GLONASS satellites for quicker signal acquisition than GPS alone. A worldwide basemap is stored on the unit's internal memory so you will always have an idea of where you are. The unit's built-in 3-axis tilt-compensated electronic compass shows your heading even while standing still, no matter how it is positioned. It also houses a barometric altimeter which tracks changes in pressure to pinpoint your precise altitude so you will know your distance from sea level. The altimeter also lets you plot barometric pressure over time which can help you keep an eye on changing weather conditions.
The 64s also features built-in paperless geocaching software, so you can transfer your data to your computer with the supplied USB cord or upload it onto the Web. The unit's screen displays key information, including location, terrain, cache difficulty rating, and hints and descriptions of hiding spots. All of this means no more manually entering coordinates and paper printouts for your geocaching hobby.
You can wirelessly share your data and images using the built-in Bluetooth connectivity with other Garmin devices. This unit also features ANT+ technology so your GPS can communicate with other compatible devices such as their VIRB, and accessory sensors like tempe and heart rate monitors. Smart notifications let you receive emails, texts and more, right on the screen from your iPhone 4s or later wirelessly.
Store up to 5000 waypoints on the receiver's built-in memory as well as 10,000 points and 200 saved tracks. A microSD card slot lets you load TOPO 24K maps for hiking, Trailhead Series TOPO maps for famous trails, BlueChart g2 charts for boating, or City Navigator NT maps data for turn-by-turn routing on roads.
