Whether out for a day hike or on a multi-day adventure, this rugged GPS will get where you are going and help you get the perfect picture when you get there. With intuitive GPS controls and an 8-megapixel camera, the 64csx offers the convenience of a phone, but with better GPS and in a much tougher housing. Preloaded with routable TopoActive maps, that detail streets and trails, you can use your 64-series to get turn-by-turn directions, no add-ons or downloads required. Not sure where to stop for lunch, or looking for something to do, the TopoActive maps can help. Loaded with points of interest, you can scroll through nearby restaurants, parks, accommodation and more. The 8MP camera is there to document your adventures. Photographs are automatically geotagged, so there are no questions over “where was this?” Geotagged photos share more than the photo of your favourite hike or viewpoint, but also exactly where you took the picture. Once paired with one of Garmin’s free apps, the 64-series is taken to the next level, offering easy trip planning in BaseCamp, or phone connectivity, customization and LiveTracking in Connect.

  • 8-megapixel camera lets you record your adventures with geotagged photos, leaving the fragile phone safely in your pack.
  • Preloaded with routable TopoActive maps (Canada and US 100K resolution), featuring streets and trails, making front-country and backcountry navigation a lot easier.
  • Point of interest navigation lets you search for places you may want to go, e.g restaurants, attractions, accommodation, etc.
  • Free BaseCamp navigation app lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks. BaseCamp will even place your geotagged photos on the correct map locations.
  • BirdsEye Satellite Imagery allows you to download detailed satellite images (over Wi-Fi or cellular) right onto your GPS (subscription required).
  • LiveTrack™ (through a connected smartphone) allows you to share your location, speed and more, with friends, family, or followers.
  • Connects to GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite constellations for fast signal acquisition and a strong connection nearly anywhere.
  • Satellite caching allows your 64-series to save an extended predicted orbit path (EPO) file, this way it knows where to look for satellites when you turn it on, resulting in a fast and accurate satellite signal.
  • Free Garmin Connect mobile app allows you to customize your 64-series experience, reviewing stored activity data, selecting which apps can push notifications, loading and synching geocaching data and more.
  • Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ compatibility let you explore smarter with compatible activity sensors and accessories.

  • USB rechargeable battery pack runs for 16 hours and is great for adventures near civilization. When you find yourself away from the convenience of a USB charger, you can swap out the battery pack for 2 AA batteries.
  • Large 6.6cm screen is bright and clear making it easy to read in all conditions, even direct sun.
  • 8GB of internal memory can be increased via MicroSD cards (not included).
  • IPX7 waterproofing protects your 64-series from even the heaviest downpours.
