I have been using a CATALYST waterproof case for my iPhone
6+. This iPhone
has NO water
resistance, the slightest water
will get into the case. For casual spills and light water like a bit if spray or light rain it works OK. The one time I fell in (dock side board broke under me) I was out of the water in under a minute but the phone
was ruined despite the case.
At the time I did quite a bit of research
and found the Catalyst top rated. But they are pricey and I find they need to be replaced every year or so. I have taken to using some silicone grease to help seal the joints. But also the little rubber plugs over the connection points tend to break or disappear. Last I checked replacements
were not sold
in USA or Canada
but were elsewhere.
So a truly waterproof, IP68 or 67 in the basic devices is really important.
I have now bought an Samsung Galaxy 10+ to use as my main navigation
device. Still loading software
. Its a bit of work
to use the different interface. However the phone
was $350 refurbished, I cant tell it from new. It is IP68 and there are many inexpensive waterproof/shockproof cases available.
I will eventually buy a newer iPhone, but the Galaxy will be my main nav device.
