Non-Zumo GPS that can do routes and tracks
Garmin makes lots of GPS models. The primary difference between the Nuvi series and its successors, and the pricey Zumo series, is the IPX7 waterproofing on the Zumos.
Does anyone have any recommendations for non-Zumo Garmins that will do what Zumos do? My thought is that for a third of the price and a water resistant/proof mount, it would do just as well as a Zumo.
Full disclosure - I'm currently using perfectly functional 2720 on an over the dash mount. Unfortunately Garmin no longer supports it and the three year old maps are beginning to show their age. Meanwhile I'm also considering putting my phone in an aquabox with the TomTom app.
