The waterproof Garmin Quest series are the only true multi-function GPS devices that can be used in a motor vehicle, on a motorcycle, in a boat or for hillwalking.
The Quest comes with the latest full mapping of Europe on DVD which can be downloaded to the 243MB of internal memory (may not be sufficient for long journeys) and is capable of full route planning and multi-stop journeys.
The Quest has been available for several years and is now approching the end of its manufacturing run. While Garmin will continue to support this product for several years, we would only recommend this GPS if you need a unit that is flexible and can be used for street navigation, marine and off-road persuits.
