Can you post some photos? Also - did you tap into the diagnostic plug at the rear of the 1200GS for the ignition signal or elsewhere?

Any other manufactures make something similar?

I have a Nuvi 550. It also has a rubber gasket and I haven't had problems with corrosion on connectors.

It has a usb connector for power - so I suspect that over time it can become corroded.

I use Basecamp and import routes into the SD card. Works well.
