Best waterproof NON-Garmin GPS

Hi guys,

I need a new waterproof (preferably handheld) gps and I am sick, sick, sick of dealing with garmin. We normally use the 60csx, but are hoping to find something similar made by a different company for which it will be easier to load electronic maps from all sources.

Google your way but you may find few handheld waterproof units that let you load any charts. I think every single make I have used allowed proprietary charts only.

Newer garmins let you create and use your own charts:

Delorme PN-60 series

But... I have used Openstreet map on a number of Garmins as well.

There aren't too many choices out there, delorme, magellan, tom tom
