GPSMAP 62s Firmware - 4.9 vs 5.1
« on: November 29, 2013, 14:48:12 »
When I arrived at work this morning, the GPSMAP 62s I ordered yesterday was waiting for me (Great service from GPSCity and FedEx).

I decided to load some batteries in it and check it out. 

I noticed that it shipped with firmware version 4.90.
The current firmware version available on the Garmin web site is 5.10.

I see one of the changes is related to logging a Geocache as found, which I plan on using tomorrow.

Any issues with this version?

None yet for me. Mostly just functionality changes to things they should have done from tge beginning, if they had bothered to ask geocachers.

We upgraded to 5.1 and the screen froze a couple of times in the field before completely seizing up when GSAK was updating it.  It was replaced by Garmin after they couldn't help.

Wow.  I hope that was just a random occurrence.
