cheapo waterproof GPS
Balking at the 300+ Price for a Garmin 550 (waterproof) I sprung for a 255 (120ish). One tube of clear RTV later (on the speaker grill and minisd port) and the thing survived several rainstorms on my run to Key West this past month. Granted it was inside the windshield on my '87 LT but it's a parabellum replacement with the pseudo NACA duct so the GPS got fairly wet during the rain.
Zero problems. I'd still do the plastic baggie trick if I knew it was going to be well soaked.
