I'd buy it for that but still out of town. Sounds fishy though.
Well, the unit will power up using a standard USB cable, so you can verify if it works easy enough. Even if it doesn't for $150 you could send it in and get a refurb unit. So even though you had $225 in it, it's still a good deal. Now if it's stolen and the owner reported it to Garmin, then you're screwed. I sold a 550 a while back that was just the unit no cradles or anything because it came with a bike I bought. I already had a 550, so I kept the cradle that was on the bike. You can always ask the seller to give you the serial number so you can verify it's not reported stolen to Garmin.

Honestly, it sounds a bit fishy since the 550's really don't have chargers, they need to be plugged into a cradle because the battery life is so piss poor. Were talking like 2 or 3 hours, now the guy selling it really ought to know that shit. And if he doesn't have another 550 he's using there's no reason for him to hang onto the cradle since it won't work with anything else.

Exactly what I was thinking Albie. Bet it's hotter than a $2 pistol!

You guys are in our thoughts and prayers. Having to watch our folks n' family aging sucks, pure n' simple. Mom said "Aging isn't for sissies".

Tnx V-man...she and I had our "talk" yesterday..she could hear me and only nod for a reply..she knows that her body is shutting down and that peace will come to her soon. I reassured her that she will not go else where to die and that she will die here on her mountain, a promise I made to her long ago and will keep, I owe her that.

Thinking of you and your family Doc. We could all be so lucky to get taken that good of care of in our final days.
