I notice the battery compartment is only splashproof, so effectively the unit cant be submerged nor soaked.
It will be used on a thundercat so is bound to get soaked. Do you reckon it will cope?
Also if i were to have it say, up the arm of my dry or wet suit, does it have the facility to recall the top speeds?
Thanks in advance
Have accidentally had mine in the bottom of a bag with water in so fully submerged for several hours and is fine. The battery cover screws on & reckon would be fine in heavy spray.
Not sure if it can ' remember' speed as mine only comes out every so often to make sure it still works - but for not much cash can give you a position, heading , speed , etc - even has a map ( of sorts) built in . I think they dod a 310 & a 315 which did much the same but cheaper . Think the 310 was overly basic with quite small numbers .
Or as said stick anything in a bag ( freezer or more expensive option) and its waterproof .
