    I have spent anywhere from a couple of hundred to well over a grand on waterproof phones, none of them are.

    I personaly would rather take a dedicated gps and leave the phone at home.....phones are just to fragile and unreliable.

    Have bought a 62s so the old Garmin will be relegated to the boat.

    I use a Garmin 62s, bomb proof. I just lost it in the Kaimanawas, probably gonna go for a walk this weekend to try find it.

    I also use a Samsung S8. It's waterproof, love it.
