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.

Thanks.

Re: Best waterproof NON-Garmin GPS

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:

Garmin | United States | Custom Maps

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
