I'm not new to GPS by any means, but it looks like I will soon have to replace my old Magellan Meridian which I bought almost 14 years ago. I'm getting weird intermittent problems where it tells me the batteries are dead (when they're brand new.) Anyway, it looks like the closest to my reliable old Meridian is the Garmin GPSMap 64ST. My needs are really very basic: I like using the GPS to track my actual miles driven, to know where I am and to get a view of upcoming intersections, etc. I have a Garmin touch screen GPS in my truck but I've tried it on the bike and it doesn't work for several reasons: 1. The touch screen is very difficult to use with gloves on. 2. It's not waterproof and 3. The color screen "washes out" in any kind of daylight. I do NOT plan on using a GPS for "navigation" so I don't need turn-by-turn directions or anything like that. So my question for the group is: Who uses a 64ST and do you think it would fit my needs as described above? If not, is there another reasonably priced (let's say $225 and under) GPS that would work as well? I'm especially interested in things like battery life and readability of screen in daylight. I wish it was still possible to get a monochrome GPS instead of color, I think color sucks up too much battery power and is hard to read in daylight. As I said above, I use my GPS more for "situational awareness" than for navigation as such so the cost of a navigation GPS would be wasted for me. It also has to be "glove friendly" which is why I like big buttons over touch screens.
