Well, I just got back from checking out the zumo 660 at the dealer.
I'm not impressed with the pressure touch screens, never have been. Hardware buttons and a little more effort from the software developers would convince me to buy one.
I had to mash the crap out the screen on this demo model to get it to work, not the kind of thing I'd enjoy thinking I paid $800 for. Sales guy said, "well folks play with this one all the time and wear it out, new ones aren't like this one". My reply, "so mine will be like this one in a year, great. No thanks".
Beside it's pretty easy and cheap to sew some conductive thread into any glove to make it work with capacitive touch screens.
Likely I'll just do without gps until I find an old small marine unit. I think a garmin 275 is about right size, maybe wrong model number.
I'm gonna try to quit thinking gps and go ahead and buy that D&D Fat Cat pipe now.
