Gulftider (11/3/2009)Garmin Nuvi 500 you can load the BlueChart® g2 and Inland Lakes marine maps on . I have one for my auto but have not loaded the Bluechart g2 on it so I can't speak for how well it would work. $299.00
My wife bought me a Nuvi (don't remember the series...maybe the 855??). Isearched the web for Gulf of Mexico marine maps. There was none to be found for the model I had.We called Garmin. He strongly suggested not usingmy Nuvi for marine apps. They are NOT waterproof. They said water damage would void the warranty. He is the one that suggested the 478. I returned the Nuvi to Bestbuy the next day.
Exactly. The 478 and 276C are waterproof. They can be completely submerged at one meter for 30 minutes. My 276C has taken quite a bit of spray and keeps on ticking. When it gets a lot of saltwater on it, I dip it in freshwater to get the salt off. I do not think that a Nuvi would take even a drop of saltwater.
