Garmin nuvi 550??
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??

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.
