    GPS Suggestions and Specs.

    Well, After almost 9 years the old e-Trex finally tossed in the towel. I guess the electronics freaked when I hit 200mph.

    Looking for some suggestions for a replacement unit.

    What I'm looking for would actually be a "dual purpose" GPS device. To be used both in the car with "voice navigation" and clipped to a handlebar mount for speed info and lake Nav.

    Key features I'm looking for:

    > Water Resistant, handlebar mountable, battery powered w/ 12vdc external power connection

    > Large, (bright in full sunlight) Color display

    > Voice guided terrestrial Nav.

    > Included mapping software for lakes of the CONUS

    > <$200

    Am I asking for too much ?

    A question for those who already have particular models, what do / don't you like about any particular Brand / Model, or what "do you wish you knew" before you bought it...

    Suggestions ?

    Closest I could do to with a simmilar wish list was a Garmin 76Cx.

    Pro's:
    - handheld size
    - waterproof
    - floats
    - easy to read color screen
    - upgradable chip (put in a 2 gig card for all streets, bluecharts, and topos for hiking)
    - RXT has a holder for it

    Unfortunitly it doesn't do voice - but beeps for driving navigation. (1 beep your close, 2 beeps turn now.) It does get me where I need to go. Otherwise works great.

    Other con was price. base unit was about $300 about a year ago and then you have to buy bluecharts extra

    The only way you are going to find all those qualifications is to go with Garmin Zumo series for motorcycles. They start at $799 though. I just bought the Nuvi 1300T and like it but any water will kill it. Trust me, killed one the first day I had it riding the bike in a slight drizzle. You are better off buying one for the ski and one for the car.
