Okay guys here's the deal, I had a garmin Quest that died so my birthday rolls around and Steveston hardware had a couple quest 2's still new in the box. Anyway when I called garmin to register the product the chap at Garmin was quite frank about how old this was and that there are no map updates etc.
Should I be going with something different and newer without blowing the bank? I like a lot of the trip computer functions on the quest and will the basemap really change, probably not... If I was riding and is started raining I could could really just throw the thing in my tank bag or whatever. The quest is water proof but I'm not sure how important that is, is the fact its a 4-5 yr old unit more important etc etc.
