Looking for advise from anybody who has used their GPS units from their boat on a snowmobile or wheeler. How do they handle the cold? Any troubles or tips?

I have a hds5 gen 2 on the wheeler and it works great bought the standard power plug and added a cigarette plug on my own and saved a few bucks. I use the ram mount so put a ball in the truck, on the boat and on the auger rack for the wheeler and it moves with whatever I am using. I use it for mapping only. Hds9 was too big for anything but the boat for me.

I did the same thing. I have the HDI 5 mounted on sled fit the lake map then pop it off and ham a ram mount in my alumna lite fish house. Works great. Never have had an issue with the cold. Hope that helps happy fishing!

I picked up a LMS-522c cheap from Craigslist, with a MN chip and a LOW chip, put a mount on my snowmobile and it works great. Never any issue with the cold. But I don't use it as a flasher, just strictly as a GPS.
