I recently used a Magellan GPS 2000 (small, hand-held unit) - despite
statements in the user instructions manual that it is water resistant, it
malfunctioned after the first mild shower it was exposed to. I have no
idea whether this is typical, but I would certainly stay clear of that
particular model!

Thought for the day: If you see a light at the end of the tunnel,
it is probably a train coming your way.
