    Hi Tom,
    I use a Garmin Nuvi 500. It's waterproof to something like 7 ft. and has a touchscreen & a user replaceable li-ion battery. Amazon has them. The GPS doesn't produce the maps. You need to download your track to another program. To produce the hybrid satallite / road map you refer to I used a bicycle log program called Ascent (mac Program). If you should get the Nuvi, tethering both parts of the swivel suction cup mount is advised. I've wacked mine with the paddle a few times.
