Cycling with a GPS is becoming quite normal these days and we are no exception to this.
That said a GPS should never replace your own capabilities of navigating and finding your way as this is one of the fun parts of cycle touring. We see the GPS as a tool or aid to our experience while on the bicycle in remote or unknown places. We have earlier done a write up on how we navigate in the post This is how we navigate.
We have used earlier versions of Garmin GPS the Etrex 30 and found it lacking some functionality so before our big journey we decided on the Garmin GPSmap 62st and in this review we cover the experience with this GPS.
