What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garmin GPSMAP 64 Worldwide with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • It's a gps and if it has a signal, it can sort of tell you where you're located (fyi, my phone is more accurate).
  • This GPS seems to have no problem picking up a signal under the trees, though it is winter, so the foliage is a little thinner but not like in temperate climates.
  • The GPS showed the trail ! So I just followed.the highlighted trial on the GPS for the next 3 miles threw several more river crossings and no visible trail until it came out on a camping aria, also marked on the GPS.
  • This thing is nearly worthless. I needed it for a hike into a remote area with no cell signal and I wanted a secondary gps unit in case we were lost.
  • It lost the satellite signal so many times on the trail, that I ended up using my GPS in my phone.
Garmin GPSMAP 64st TOPO U.S. 100K with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • This Garmin GPS is a more mature successor to the GPSMAP 60CSX, which I've owned for years.
  • I am extremely happy with this GPS unit. It is very accurate and the batteries last a long time.
  • It has a ton of features that are handy to use on the trail. I would recommend this GPS unit to anyone. Very good product.
  • Works Great. updates and sat acquisition very fast. topo is definitely a must. very easy to use and has lots of features my old GPS lacked.
  • The GPS seems to be a pretty good unit, however the small screen is a bit hard to see when you want an overall picture of the area. other than that it's not bad for the price

What customers say about "Map Features"
Garmin GPSMAP 64 Worldwide with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • The apps uses very detailed 10 ft elevation change USGS maps overlayed over your position.
  • The built-in map is much more detailed than the one that comes with the 60CSx. When you are on a hike and you come to a road-- even a back-country dirt road, the 64st will likely be able to tell you the name of the road.
  • The topographical maps on GPS File Depot were better than the maps that Garmin had on their servers. My suggestion to Garmin is to turn down the Nirvana, MC Hammer, and Vanilla Ice, look out your window and realize we are almost to 2020.
  • Love how quick it acquires signal. My only complaint is the topo map. GARMIN real gives you the finger with there top maps.
  • Downloading maps feels like it's stuck in 1995. I mean seriously, your application design looks like Bill Gates did it for Windows 95.
Garmin GPSMAP 64st TOPO U.S. 100K with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • I am a kayaker. I love the 64st! I use it with a Bluechart G2 card. The 100K TOPO basemap is perfect for identifying terrain from the water
  • This is my 4th Garmin GPS. I had a GPS 60. and two GPS 76's before this and the 64 is definitely an improvement. You can still use your old TOPO maps and tracks as well as download newer more detailed maps.
  • I really like to pre-loaded Topo maps! I'm old-school and appreciate the buttons rather than the touch screen
  • Has all the features of my old Garmin Legend plus the map feature which is really nice.
  • I tried to transfer my maps and they were locked. I did a bunch of phone calling and still had problems. So Love the product but HATE their policies on their maps.

What customers say about "Features"
Garmin GPSMAP 64 Worldwide with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • Only feature I haven't tested is the waterproof claim I'm sure it is it seems sealed up expect it to perform.
  • Overall, the unit has been very reliable, the battery use is really not that bad especially given the features of the unit. If I use the unit for 9 hours a day straight without turning it off only using two typical AA batteries I can easily get three to four days out of the batteries.
  • The battery lasted the entire 5 days and held up to the non-stop rain with no issues. Defently get one if you are a hiker !
  • The battery life is horrible. Even after setting the device for maximum battery life and turning it off overnight, I awaken to find what were brand new AA alkaline batteries, nearly dead.
  • Compared to previous models the battery life is rather short. This can be mitigated by turning off GLONASS and WAAS reception, as well as turning down the back lighting. Throw and extra set of AA's in your pack as a contingency.
Garmin GPSMAP 64st TOPO U.S. 100K with High-Sensitivity GPS and GLONASS Receiver
  • Great features, easy to operate, intuitive menu options. Reasonable battery life.
  • Overall, I am impressed with the amount of features available in a hand held GPS from Garmin today since I have been using a Garmin GPS 12XL for the last twenty years which still works like it did when I bought it and I still use it regularly in a marine application.
  • I had regular AA batteries in it on the first ATV ride I used it on and they lasted all day. It has a ton of features that are handy to use on the trail.
  • Also the buttons are similar to my old Garmin 72, which makes it nice too.
  • I chose this model based primarily on its size since space is at a premium. I have no complaints with unit itself, however reliable documentation is non-existent.
