If it's any consolation at all I did the same with my handheld VHF last week.
Water-resistant it may be but 'me proof' it ain't.


This looks okay though.

I got my garmin etrex from www.a1goods.co.uk about 6 months and have had no problems with getting it.

The basic yellow etrex on there is now 79.00. I doubt whether you'll find it cheaper elsewhere.

For anyone else getting one, I'd also get a battery charger, with a couple of rechargeable batteries.

I also download all my journeys from the GPS onto my laptop, so I can see where ive been. The trouble is the memory map navigator software is quite expensive.
