Hello & Welcome to Just Answer, Sorry to hear of any issue you may have with picking a device. May I ask: 1) What kind of "activities" you are planning during the use of this hand held device (hiking, back country vehicles, "on the road" travels, etc.)?2) What about "seasons" or "temperature changes" during use?3) Any other possibilities? Thanks

(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

Hi again, I see you may have tried to request a phone call, but it looks like that request did NOT complete for some reason. If you would like to try that again, feel free to do that, OR you can reply to may questions HERE - in this format - and we can continue here. Thanks

Hi again, I just saw that you tried another phone call request, but again it did not seem to work for some reason. If you can try to send me the approximate bid for that Premium Service, I can make the same offer from my end, and see if that works. Thanks(im)

For $21 I would like my question answered
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.
OK - I can make that same offer as a Premium Service (additional cost) - if you would like me to. Then you can choose to accept that offer and we can continue with the call- OR -You can decline that Premium Service, and we can continue here - in this "Q&A" (typing) format. If that is what you pick, please respond to my original questions, which I will paste below for your convenience. ==========================May I ask:1) What kind of "activities" you are planning during the use of this hand held device (hiking, back country vehicles, "on the road" travels, etc.)?2) What about "seasons" or "temperature changes" during use?3) Any other possibilities?========================== Thanks(im)

Hi again, As a reference, let me give you a link to the Garmin page where they list (almost) ALL of their hand held units. On that page, there should be a "Shop by Feature" column on the left, that you can use to "filter" (display) only the units that have that particular feature. AND multiple features can be clicked - to filter the devices down even more. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/into-sports/handheld/cIntoSports-c10341-p0.html NOTE: I believe ALL of the units listed can withstand being "wet" (one of your requirements), but you may want to check the specifications of any particular unit that looks good. What you will be looking for is a "water rating" that says "IPX7". Now IF you are going to be using this unit for DRIVING and Navigation (on regular roads), you may want to include the filter for "Accepts data cards", and then look for a pre-programmed microSD/SD card that has the lower 49 states (to install for that feature). I hope this helps get you started on your search for a device that will suit your needs. Please let me know what you find OR if you have any more details or questions for me. If this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for helping you with this question.You should see some "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them. Take Care & Travel Safe, Greg A.(im)

So you tell me what questions did you answer, I ain't happy, what my money back
Expert:  Greg A. replied 1 year ago.
The only "question" a saw, was "you tell me what to buy", and I saw no other responses back for the questions I asked, about HOW you intended to use the unit.My questions were so that I could provide the most detail possible, based on your responses. But since I saw NO responses, I sent a "starting point" for you to look at a list of possible "hand held" units.If you would like MORE information or have MORE QUESTIONS, please respond back with those questions here.Otherwise I will opt out of your question, so that perhaps another expert can respond to you.
