Geocachers take note: The Garmin GPSMAP 62 is the handheld you've been waiting for

Details are bit light right now as this thing is anything but official. GPSTracklog managed to dig up some details about the upcoming replacement to the beloved 60CSx and it seems to bring a whole bunch of new features to the form factor.

The new model brings a 2.6-inch 65K color touchscreen that’s designed to work in the bright of day. That’s important too as users will be able to load Garmin custom maps and BirdsEye aerial imagery onto the handheld. Some models even feature built-in topography maps along with tri-axial electronic compass and barometric altimeter.

It seems this guy will hit streets as early as July starting at $350 with a Canadan-spec’d model running $550.
