It’s still cold spring in Scandinavia but I still feel compelled to plan some long-distance trail riding for the coming and hopefully warm summer. My intention is to ride at least one or two multi-day trails in Eastern or Northern Finland.

I ended up choosing GPSMAP62st to be my new GPS for mountain biking. Why GPSMAP62st? Mainly because of its size and proper keyboard. St version comes with preloaded European 1:100k scale recreation maps. I received the unit today and did some running with it. My initial impressions are actually very positive. GPSMAP62st feels responsive, in that sense reminding me of GPSMAP276C. I never got the same positive initial feelings with my Zûmo 660 which felt quite sluggish (especially panning the map) for me, maybe after being used to the powerful 276C. GPSMAP62’s user interface feels quite nice and easier to use the good old 276C. Interesting to see how it’s gonna deal with TOPO maps, especially scrolling. Hopefully I will get a chance to test it this Easter. For pros and cons of different GPS units, see my previous writing, click here.
