I know nothing about GPS, but these posts have been helpful. a few questions

so far have narrowed my search to the 62s or 62st. Only difference between the two as far as I can tell is the 62st comes with the canada TOPO map and is 170$ more.

should i get the 62s and download free maps from the internet or should i get the 62st? (even though i will probably still want free maps)

If i purchased the 62s what free maps should i download for BC?

having logging roads on the maps is important to me, in this case do i need to get the 62st?

how does putting the maps onto the GPS go? do you have to use them one at a time or will something like the free contour map overlay onto something like the shaded relief map?
