This is probably the simplist solution:

Re: recommendations for waterproof ipad case

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 and charts. 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.

Have had good luck with Temdan cases on several devices. I especially like thier case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Amazon lists the case for iPad 9.7" also.

Try looking at Otterbox cases or a Pyle case https://www.amazon.com/Pyle-Universa.../dp/B00HHZVAAA

I wish someone would make one with a round flotation hinge on the side for propping and gripping that also gives some flotation
