How about motorcyling? I heard that GPS devices designed for motorcyles are 
not just waterproof but also more robust inside, due to the permanent 
vibrations a motorcyle produces. However I have occasionally used my old HTC 
P3300 (Artemis) for navigation and it did not seem to take any harm. To attach 
it I used stuff from a Medion PNA, that came with an "outdoor kit", namely a 
"showerproof case" and a holder for bycicles (that fit on my motorcycle too).
