Description

Outdoor GPS Shop – The experts view

The Garmin GPSMAP64sx is a great budget button GPS unit from Garmin.

It is an updated version of the Garmin GPSMAP64s but sadly it does not come with any base maps as standard, this is why here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we sell it with OSM UK and Ireland (very similar to the Garmin Topo Active mapping) so you can have a good usable GPS unit for not a massive amount of money.

It comes with a built-in electronic compass; this gives you far greater accuracy at small movements and it also has an altimeter that works from the air pressure (giving you improved accuracy).

If you can afford it with the 1:50k Topo Great Britain Pro map card it is a great addition as you then get full GB Ordnance Survey maps on this unit.

Explore the world with reliable navigation in hand

  • Rugged and water-resistant design with button operation and a 2.6″ sunlight-readable colour display
  • Know where you’re at with a high-sensitivity receiver with quad helix antenna and multi-GNSS support (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo), and 3-axis compass with barometric altimeter available on GPSMAP 64sx models
  • Wireless connectivity via Bluetooth® and ANT+® technology available on GPSMAP 64sx models
  • Battery life: up to 16 hours in GPS mode

Navigate your next adventure with the GPSMAP 64sx handheld navigator series. Whether you’re hiking, cycling, geocaching or climbing, you are free to explore more with the best-in-class Garmin handheld navigation in the palm of your hand. And the series now has multi-GNSS support, too.

Keep your Fix

With its quad helix antenna, high-sensitivity receiver and multiple global navigation systems support (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo), the GPSMAP 64sx series locates your position quickly and precisely, and maintains its location in more challenging environments than GPS alone.

With 8 GB of onboard memory and a microSD™ card slot for expandable storage, you can conveniently download even more maps.

The GPSMAP 64sx series also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required) that lets you load satellite images and integrate them with your maps.

GPSMAP 64sx handhelds let you share your waypoints, tracks, routes and geocaches wirelessly with other compatible devices. Your friends can enjoy your favourite hike or cache without waiting for you to plug in to your computer; simply press “send” to transfer your information to another Garmin handheld.

FAQs

1. What are each of the map options available with this unit?

–              GPS Unit Only

The map page will be blank on this unit unless you put a map card in the unit, or you download some mapping using a Birdseye Plus voucher.

If you already have an Ordnance Survey map card (micro SD) from another Garmin GPS, you could put it in this unit.

 

–              Garmin OSM Maps

OSM mapping is a proper digital map, as you zoom in you get more info and as you zoom out you get less BUT it is not an Ordnance Survey maps, therefore it does not differentiate between Bridleways and Footpaths, it just marks them as paths.

It covers UK and Ireland.

–              With Birdseye PLUS Voucher (25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps)

You activate the map credit against your Garmin account and then once you have this map credit in place you have one year to download your 25,000 sq km of 1:25k maps.

25,000 sq km is larger than the size of Wales and the area you choose can be split (i.e. you can choose areas from all over the country).

Don’t worry, if you buy the unit from Outdoor GPS Shop you will get a step by step guide of how to download this mapping.

–              With TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:50k

This is full GB at 1:50k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit.

The TOPO PRO means that it is the latest map card from Garmin, giving you off road turn by turn routing within the National Parks, this means you can select a location many miles ahead and the GPS will route you via the footpaths to get to that location (like a car sat nav does).

Outside National Parks the GPS will navigate you in a straight line from waypoint to waypoint.

Don’t worry, here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we set the unit up for you so you can easily use these features and we even include a quick start guide so you can quickly get up and running with your GPS unit.

 

2. Does this unit come with batteries?

No, but it just requires x2 AA batteries. We would recommend some good quality rechargeable batteries, as it will use a set every day.

3. What is the difference between the GPSMap 64x and 64sx?

The GPSMap 64sx includes a barometric altimeter, 3-axis compass and wireless connectivity.

    Bought this GPS from you guys as it came with the mapping, I actually bought it from another retailer first but sent it back and bought from you lot when i realised theirs had no mapping and the only option they gave was to buy a £150.00 map card. thank goodness I found yours and it had the mapping on, which I really do like. The instructions you also sent have been great, starting to get to grips with it, thanks guys.

    Bought this as an upgrade from my Garmin eTrex 20x and can’t believe the difference. It’s so much easier to use and the screen is so much better. Bought it with the option to download the 1:25k maps and the instructions you included made this pain free, I honestly don’t know how you could do it without them. Had the GPS for just over a month now and loving it, it’s a lot of GPS for a good price.

    Prompt delivery and evidence of retailer QA process ( checksheet) in the box with the satnav showing it had been updated, micro SDcard loaded and checked etc. Happily do business with Outdoor GPS Shop again.
