- GPS Training review on the Garmin GPSMAP 65 - the expert's view -

The Garmin GPSMAP65 is a great budget button GPS unit from Garmin.

It is an updated version of the Garmin GPSMAP64 with the addition of multi-band/ multi-GNSS handheld with sensors. It also works alongside the Garmin Explore app so you can transfer routes/ tracks directly onto this unit without the use of a PC/ Mac.

Also with the addition of Garmin’s TOPO ACTIVE mapping (44 European countries), it is great for those wanting to venture further afield.

This unit is similar to the Garmin GPSMAP 65s except it does not include the electronic compass and barometric altimeter. The electronic compass gives you accuracy at small movements (with this unit you will need to be moving to get both the map page and compass page to orientate) and the barometric altimeter gives you more accurate height data.

FAQ'S

 

1. What is the difference between the Garmin GPSMAP 65 and GPSMAP 65s?

The Garmin GPSMAP 65s has a built-in electronic compass, this gives you better orientation of the map. 

As the GPS works from satellites thousands of miles above the earth the map and navigational arrow do not change if you turn the GPS through 90 degrees. With an electronic compass built into a GPS unit it will rotate as you expect it would do.

2. What are each of the map options available with the Garmin GPSMAP 65?
  
– Garmin GPSMAP 65 with Western Europe TOPO ACTIVE Mapping

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

It covers 47 European countries, compiled using the community-generated OpenStreetMap (OSM) database. Coverage for: Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia (Kaliningrad only), San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom and the Vatican City.

– Garmin GPSMAP 65 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 Great Britain).

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

– Garmin GPSMAP 65 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 GPS Training 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.

– Garmin GPSMAP 65 with TOPO Great Britain Pro 1:25k

This is full GB at 1:50k, 1:50k and 1:250k mapping on a map card, which sits in the back of the GPS unit. As you zoom in and out you pass through each of these three map sets.

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.
