Bought my refurb Garmin GPSMap 478 from www.getfeetwet.com, their refurbs are returned, UNSOLD, items from retailers. So, no USED equipment sold to their customers. Great deals.

I got mine from GetFeetWet.com for $199.00. I've seen them used on e-bay for $165.00. $200 seems to be the average "street price" for a new one.
