The third Garmin
Have had three Garmin chart plotters. The second one was a 298 a few years back. It did get moisture in it in some rough weather, right after it was new. Garmin replaced it, no questions asked. Never any other problems. Current 498 has lived at the helm for three years, in some pretty nasty stuff at times. Like the old Timex watch commercials, it just keeps on tickin. I don't think I would trust any of the units that are made for street or for street/marine usage on a boat.
