I have a Garmin chart-plotter 4208 that is about 4-5 years old and it is not waterproof as advertised. I was in a thunder storm going down wind
and the rain blew in under my bimini
and the unit shorted out. I took the back off and dried it out. It worked one time and will not turn back on. I called Garmin and they said it should be waterproof but it was out of warranty and it would cost $480 to fix and no guarantee that it would be waterproof.
For that price I'm thinking maybe I should get a new smaller unit because I don't use most of the functions for the 4208, Anybody have any recommendation on a chart-plotter that is WATERPROOF?
