I had two sizes of the RAM Aqua boxes and I hated them. They were too big and heavy for what they were and electronics inside the boxes heated up far more than they should be run at. And it wasn't even that hot on the days I tried.

This was the Aqua box with a Garmin 295W I had at the time.



And this is the Arkon box I also bought to try, and also hated. I had the 295W in it to show the relative sizes of things. This shot shows how the case is made.



Granted, the Aqua boxes were fairly waterproof when used with the baffled cable entry point under the box.

But I wouldn't waste any money on either one. Just happy I was able to get rid of them.

A good baggie with a RAM mount would be just as useful, IMHO.
