Garmin’s Quest

Garmin announced a new portable GPS navigator. Although its intended use is on the road, it is compatible with the entire line of MapSource outdoor cartography, including U.S. Topo, 24K Topo, Recreational Lakes with Fishing Hot Spots, and BlueChart. And it is waterproof to IEC 60529 IPX-7 standards, which basically means that it is submersible in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The Quest will be available from August 2004, for more info go to Garmin’s website.
“With the brilliant 256-color backlit TFT display, the Quest is easy to read in any light. Theunit has a rechargeable internal lithium-ion battery that provides up to 20 hours of use. Smaller than a standard television remote, the Quest provides an ample screen viewing area, but it won’t demand a lot of room on the dashboard or in the briefcase. The unique antenna folds flush with the unit then not in use and users can connect an optional external antenna as well.”
