Great deal for a GPS (Run don't walk)

I found this on another forum but thought I would share here on ADVRider. The Garmin 2730 seems to be a decent Motorcycle GPS that has some great functions. XM Radio, MP3 just to name a few. You can buy them now for around $175 shipped to your door from places like Amazon, Ebay etc. Then if you decide that XM is not for you sell the XM antenna model GXM30 for $100 on Ebay and you have a very capable GPS for under $100 bucks. Where else you gonna get one at that price. You can't even buy a decent MP3 player for $75 and this will give you GPS. Check it out.

The cool thing about Garmin is that if you call them, they will upgrade your new unit with new maps. The 2009 maps are out, but I bought a unit on sale that had 2008 maps, but one quick phone conversation and the update was available from the mygarmin website. Be careful with other brand's units on sale though, as map updates can be $80-100.

Another great value is the Garmin Nuvi 500, for those wanting to step up.

Its a bright screen waterproof unit, and so also makes a great motorcycle GPS. In addition to road maps, it also has topographical maps for offroad riding/hiking.

And btw, by waterproof, they don't mean water resistant. You can use it submerged in an aquarium as seen here:

Its available on ebay right now for $370 free shipping. Search slickdeals.net for how to use the Microsoft Live 25% off on ebay purchases (you have to have a paypal account, but they are easy to set up).

Total shipped no tax is $277, which is a much better deal than the Zumo niche product they sell.

Thanx for the heads up.

I placed a pre order for a Delorme Earthmate PN-40. Should get it mid November.
Having never owned a GPS before.... it may end up being a mistake....I'll let you guys know.

Check in advance to be sure. Someone reported a while back that Garmin was NOT upgrading maps on some of the closeout sales.

2730

I picked up a 2730 and got it the other day. It came with the 2008 version of MapSource and version 9.0 of City Navigator NT. I had (have actually) the 2610 and find the 2730 will do just fine. I hope to take heeeYouuge ass trip next year!!.. :)

Garmin AMA Discount

Don't know the details just yet - but in this month's AMA magazine there is an ad that says that Garmin is going to give AMA members a 20% discount on two purchases per year. Offer is supposed to start on 11/19/08 www.garmin.com/ama

I checked today and didn't find anything out there.

Hope it is 20% off the best retail price you can find.

Dave

Garmin Colorados at nearly Half Off

I was able to make an exclusive buy from Garmin on Colorado 300s and 400s. MSRP Colorado 300 $499.99, now $269.95 after rebate with free ship. MSRP Colorado 400 $599.99, now $319.95 after rebate with free ship. I don't think they're as nice as a 60cx or csx for dualsport use, but at this price they're certainly a good option. I'll see if I can dig up a similar deal on the zumo 450 if that is of interest here...

Click here to view Colorados.

Mods - close this thread if this is a violation. Since this thread is a sticky and this deal is so far below anywhere else I thought I'd give my fellow inmates a crack at it... Kind of awkward since I'm active on these forums but also try and make my living selling this stuff...

hmmm - I'd check with Garmin to make sure that includes an unlock code for a GPS device if you intend to use it on one.
