    Garmin nuvi 550??

    http://www.jr.com/garmin/pe/GAR_NUVI550/

    Has anyone tried this gps yet? I like the way it looks more as compared to the handheld ones. Wanted to get some opinions on it.

    It was tested in a fish tank for half hour.

    There are about 5 different mounts available for it so mounting it to a ski should be a breeze

    I am more interested in the navigational aspect and not the speed keeping. Any other suggestions?? On the garmin website there is an option to add water maps. But I didn’t see ocean maps??

    Any insight??

    Thanks

    The drawbacks are it doesn't float and you would have to buy terrain or lake maps for it. The maps aren't cheap. The Nuvi's don't do a good job with waypoints and recording your tracks either.
