Sealing "waterproof" electronics

Other than a waterproof drybag, does anyone know of any waterproofing products that can be applied to a handheld "waterproof" VHF, camera or GPS to keep the water from getting past the battery doors. It seems like a fairly common problem with many manufactures and products. I've tried 303 on the rubber gasketing on a Garmin GPS12xl (old unit no longer supported) with no luck.

There are lots of waterproof cases that come close to the shape of the device. Is that what you are looking for?

Waterproof VHF Radio Case, No Signal Loss - Floats

Waterproof Camera Cases, SLR, Digital SLR, Underwater Housings

Waterproof GPS Cases

I found these by doing a Google search. There are lots more to choose from.
