I used it in my dinghy and it got wet occasionally. One time I noted the back cover wasn't sealed properly, check it carefully. I ended up with a little fogging in the LCD once in a while but it worked great. I wonder now about long term, as anything in salt water......
Just get an alternative power source, like the 12 volt cord that Garmin does NOT tell you about so you are not wasting 50,000 batteries or paying them for their ridiculous battery packs. The TOPO 24K chips are a must have for any serious off road riding, just be aware if you do not take my advice and get a different power supply, you will run the risk of losing the micro SD card every time you open the back because the chip holder is NOT secured at all.
Terrible instruction manual for the unit. Just throw it in the trash and get ready for about 30 minutes of good classes on you tube to really get the most out of this thing, as once again Garmin support for their products is AWFUL! I think that they must think that their products are all very intuitive and therefore you can figure most of it out like you do a cell phone.
They are not. If you want to understand how to make this unit great, take the time to learn all of it's features.
Update: After having used this through Quetico and having used the old 76 there as well, it's night and day tracking with the 78s. The triaxial makes the thing absolutely stellar. Updating to a 5 star since for me, the actual features outweigh the lack of case / decent manual. You will not be disappointed if route tracking with this thing.
