Yes, it's an excellent device. I've recently upgraded to the 64, but still own my 62.

Pros: good reception, accurate, and waterproof.

Cons: lots of extra features that I never use, my view screen is scratched to **** (but I suspect this is more due to my treatment of it than from the material used)

I wish...
...that Garmin would consider what Delorme is doing, and add a text/message option via satellite. IMO, it's a big opportunity for the company.

If the money is available the upgrade to the 64 series is worth it for glonass. I was in the same situation as you a month ago and after investigating opted for the 64s
