Get lost? Never with this thing. Garmin is the only way to go.

Summary: This thing is amazing! I will never have to worry about getting lost in strange woods again. And it has the ability to work with water maps or land maps. This will come in handy when I buy my boat next year.
Summary: I purchased the Garmin GPSMAP 62S for hunting. I also ordered the last version of the AZ Hunting maps memory card. This is a must have package if you're serious about hunting and/or outdoor activities. I would not recommend buying a touch screen GPS, because it could freeze during the winter as well as crack if dropped, which would probably cost some $$ to repair. As always, spending a little bit of extra $$$ gives you the upper hand.
Summary: Having used both Magellan and Garmin products, my choice for an upgrade is the GPSMAP 62S. A new standard, this unit is great in the field, and its electronic compass is un-surpassed. I had no need for a camera in my GPS, as most of us have camera's in our smartphones, nor were the topo maps a necessity, so this model Garmin is ideal for the trail and for geocaching.
Summary: I've used a few GPS units - and the GPSMaps 62s is a great model for geocaching. Readable in sunlight, and Geocaching-friendly (two display options for the cachers) make it a great companion for finding multimillion-dollar satellites to find Tupperware buried in the woods. Every key is within very easy reach of the thumb, which hand you hold it in, but it favors the right.
Summary: After reading many of the reviews here, I was expecting to have some issues with the 62s, but I went ahead and bought it because a friend had one and it passed his high standards. So far, I've only had one small problem with it. I got the 62s to replace my 60csx because I wanted a better device for geocaching. In that regard, it is a vast improvement over the 60csx. I used to have to take my smart phone with me and use both devices to find a cache.
