After a little over two months using the 62s I wish I'd gotten another 60cx. I find the screen harder to read/see. But, the issue that's driving me crazy is waypoint averaging. To do waypoint averaging on the 60 you press Mark (logical), then toggle over to averaging, click Enter and wait for the averaging, click Enter again, then toggle back to OK and press Enter. (6 steps)
On the 62 you press Menu (not the logical Mark button), then press Menu a second time (??) then toggle to Waypoint Averaging, then press Enter, then (and here's the mindless part) toggle up to "Create Waypoint" (as if you didn't go to this screen to create a waypoint), press Enter and wait for the averaging, then press Enter, then Press Enter again. (8 steps) And, you damn well better toggle up to Create Waypoint if you know what's good for you.
The maddening aspect of this is that it defaults to writing over the last location you saved without warning you you're about to obliterate the coordinates for the location you saved last week, yesterday or an hour ago -- it does it without a peep. You only have to waste coordinates you can no longer replace a couple of times until want to throw this thing in the nearby lake.
Why o why doesn't it default to creating a new waypoint? It makes no sense at all to default to throwing older waypoints away. Even if you assume the majority of people don't care about the previously averaged one, which I very seriously doubt, (they went to all the trouble to do averaging because it's so much fun?), but even so they'd still have the new one and can erase the old one if they want, or let them toggle to the one they don't want to destroy it rather than the other way round.
I called Garmin about this and the rep repeatedly insisted "You don't need to do averaging" and kept trying to teach me how to use the Mark button. I asked him "Why is this feature included on the device if it's unnecessary?" He replied, "It's only for important coordinates." "So the coordinates I record aren't important?", I asked. At this point he said in a snotty tone, "Is there anything else I can help you with?" indicating he was going to hang up.
I never thought the toggling around on the 60's Mark screen was particularly friendly but at least it didn't wipe out the earlier records when you made new ones.
