Re: Handheld GPS differences
OK, answer us this: Can/will the Oregon accept the marine maps? If it can, I'd have to agree, why would someone NOT want the higher res screen?
Touchscreen concerns me although some quick research suggests it's resistive. Does anyone know for sure?
Resistive should continue working with gloved hands and after getting soaked. Capacitive probably will not. I wouldn't rely on a capacitive device.
I was in rough conditions (11' seas) trying to use my iPhone once and it soon stopped working when it and my hands were soaked. However the old Garmin with real buttons worked like a champ and carried us though the day. That's why I went with the 78 when I upgraded.
