    GPS power ?

    I've seen a few threads where folks say the've wired powere into thier GPS. How might one go about waterproofing this conenction and still be able to remove the cable/plug ?

    My good old Garmin 76 bit the dust (water...) this weekend. Its time for another one-- probably another Garmin. I frequently run out of battery on long rides

    Academy has the Garmin 76's : http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/st...in+gps&Ntk=All

    CHeck your settings on the gps because mine lasts for months. I just finished a week long vacation and had it on all day, every day for 6 days straight, same batteries.

    Maybe it died because of a voltage issue which was eating your batteries.

    I have the mapping chip installed also and is great for strange waters! I love my Garmin 76.
