I do wonder how Garmin and their suppliers comes up with the pricing of GPS units, original map purchases, and lifetime updates.

I have a Nuvi for the car. Cost me $189 for a decent widescreen with lifetime map and traffic updates.

My 376c cost me about $1,000 when I purchased it originally with CityNavigator, etc. And that was 6 years ago, now. After that, I bought an original version of City Nav NT on DVD for about $115, maybe 3 years go. And then the lifetime map updates for about $89.

My 60CsX was about $200, and then the same prices for City Nav NT license and lifetime updates as with the 376.

While I realize for moto touring I don't have to update so frequently, I do use the 376 and 60 in the car auto routing some times, and it helps to have current data in the U.S., especially around big cities.
