Although I frequently refer to my Oregon 400c "handheld," I never hold it in my hand. I got the $10 bicycle handlebar mount from Garmin and put it on my pedestal guard. So I only handle it at the beginning and end of each daysail. This is especially important with the Oregon, since it does not float and I have a walk-through transom. Not a good combination, so mounting it is essential.

FYI, the handlebar mount rotates nicely around the pedestal guard, so I can direct the device to minimize sun glare.
