If anyone else is interested but doesn't have Cabela's points/rewards, go to the 650T on Amazon (make sure you have 650T selected) and scroll to feedback (in light blue) at the bottom of the page choose tell us about a lower price. All you have to do is paste the Cabela's link and type in the price. If enough people do it Amazon will usually lower their price also.

Hope you don't mind but I am also going to post this (with credit to you) in the GPS deal sticky.
I got mine from REI for $499. Free shipping no tax. Just have to watch when they put them on sale.

Bluhduh Quick draw

Too much haste. I rushed out and bought two Garmin power/data cables expecting to use them on a couple of my motorbikes. I've since read more of this thread and Emmbeedee's other thread and determined that the rugged mount is the way to fly. Ordered. I'm not sure if I'm going to need these two power cables. I'm going to use the SAE connector setup since my bikes already have those installed for battery chargers.

Hmm. Wonder how often they go on sale. Guess I could wait another month or 2 and hope someone drops it that low. $499 sounds like a damn goo deal.

There's usually a sale around annual events like Easter, Christmas, etc, so Easter is your next best bet.

Why the heck aren't you just buying them off eBay? You can find them all day long for $469.90 with free shipping for the 600

Because Garmin reserves the right to deny warranty for eBay purchases unless they are from the Garmin eBay store. Better check to make sure the store you buy from is approved. Don't take their word for it, though.

Here's what Garmin has to say about it.

That, and the 650t includes the topo maps, more memory, and the built-in camera. To me, that was worth a little extra. If you want the base model 600, you can get it from West Marine (an authorized retailer) for the same $469.

Bokor Mountain, not worth importing your own bike for, but borrow a Ninja or an R1 or something and do it :)

Congrats TS

I have not tried the GeoCache stuff but the one you did looked complicated and rewarding at the same time.

For $30 more I get twice the internal memory and the 100K TOPO maps is why. I don't even count the crappy camera. Not to mention REI has one of the most liberal return/replacement policies around.

Twice? You get .5GB more, and that is negated by the preloaded maps.

The SD card pretty much makes the internal memory a non-issue.

That is exactly why I'm not buying off Ebay. I have considered it (and even bid on a few) but the price difference has to be worth taking the risk as it seems these units have their share of problems and the warranty may be needed.
