I had one of those Trailtech's on my bike and wasn't impressed with the backlight and certian other functions on it. I didn't like the idea of having to take my hands off the bars while riding at night to press the button that activates the backlight. And then it would only stay lit for about 4 seconds . A few people have also complained about water causing problems with the Trailtech computer thingys. The only upside I had noticed about the Trailtech's is they weigh next to nothing.
I can't speak for other brands of GPS's but my Garmin GPS 3+ has sat outside through torrential downpours without any problems. The only problems I have heard about the GPS's is that the batteries sometimes vibrate enough to seperate and cause the GPS to shut off while riding. The Trick Dual Sport kit control box has a GPS power lead so this won't be an issue for you if you use it. That's the way I run mine and have never had it shut off on me since connecting it to the kit's power lead. There are a quite a few good mounts for GPS's that will allow you to mount it however you want. A decent small GPS will cost around $80 and prices go up from there depending what features you want.

Mine is an older version of the Trick kit and I don't belive my wiring diagram will be exactly the same as yours.
Good luck with it.
