is pretty well enclosed, so it only took some spray for a few minutes while I zipped up the windows.
The 12" model is HUGE. We were wondering if we should hold out for the 15", but the 15" wouldn't even fit in the dash area where we have the 12.
Furthermore, the 15" is TWICE as expensive as the 12". For that kind of coin, I would rather have 2 12" units any day of the week.
I used to go through the keys with a Garmin
75 and then I had to plot the lat long on the paper chart. What a dream this unit is!
Even if you were forced not to be touching it because of excessive rain and spray, it would still be unbelievably useful compared to anything else I can think of.
The rest of the time, the touch screen
blows away anything else out there. Panning is a snap. No more using the little dial to try to get the arrow on the item you want info on. You just touch it. What could be better than that?
