For the last 3 years I used a Garmin Oregon GPS. It worked fine, had its faults, but it got the job done. But, after 3 years of riding off-road on my motorcycle, and I really didn't use it that much, the mini-usb connector (female end on the gps unit) has gotten so loose that it won't keep anything plugged in. I have tried manually tightening the connector and that works for a very short time, but then it is back to being too loose to be useful. Batteries don't work well because you have to have the backlight on to see the screen in sunlight, and batteries run out in a matter of hours with the backlight on at all times. So, it's time to replace my Oregon. I was at REI last night, and it seems that all GPS's out there use the same connection. This seems like an inherent weak point for anything going off-road. Is there a current GPS (preferably Garmin) that uses a more secure connection for power? Or, is there a way to make the mini-USB more secure so it won't fall out after a bit of use? I tried searching for this and couldn't find anything, I'm sorry if it has already been asked before.
