Choosing a GPS device. HELP Needed!

Choosing a GPS device. HELP Needed! was created by onflipflops
Judging from the available GPS trails on this forum, I suppose some (perhaps all, ;) ) of you here have more experience with GPS than I have.
I don't own a GPS device, but am thinking of buying one.
I love exploring unknown terrain, but in Thailand's dense jungles it can be extremely hard to keep track of where exactly you are. Of course I would never totally rely on an electronic device. After getting lost once in Khao Phanom Bencha NP, and my lucky encounter with 3 poachers that helped me finding the way out, in the dark! (Another of my many unbelievable stories, haha) I now always carry a compass. Which is useful if you know where the main rivers or roads are. But I believe a GPS device could help me out more accurately and help remember the trail for a next time.

I did a bit of research myself and found the Garmin GPSmap 62s, which seems to get good reviews. It's not the cheapest, but I rather spend a bit more on the right device, than getting stuck with a device that does not suit my needs. Does anyone of you have experience with this device, and what's your opinion? You know the conditions in these forests in Thailand, so I suppose I don't need to explain what I need.
Hope it can handle humidity and has good reception. And if you know of any abilities that I should take into account when deciding, all advice is very welcome.

Thanks in advance!
