I am looking to upgrade my Triton 400 to either 510 or a higher model. Does anybody have an idea if a long exposure to a direct sun will have any ill effect on the touch screen? I am asking because I use the GPS for biking and in the summer, the screen is exposed to a direct sun for 6+ hours when I bike. So far the Triton 400 held up very well without any case discoloration or screen problems (4+ years or so). Not sure about the new x10 series with their touch screens.
