    GARMIN GPS62

    Hi guys Im looking at a Garmin gps62 on trade me, do you have this model , how have you found it? Also as it doesnt take a SD card how easy is it to down load topo maps onto it. Many Thanks.

    I am a bit pissed as I have just got one of these off ebay and was hoping to use the free maps. I see however you need to provide proof of purchase etc. It is second hand so I will be out of luck I assume and need to buy fresh maps or something? Not so cheap anymore Ha ha.
