Garmin StreetPilot 2XXX Deals?

I've been happily using a 2610 for years. I had my eye on the 2730 (with the XM antenna) for $130 last fall and should have pulled the trigger, but I didn't.

I'm not seeing too many 26XX, 27XX, 28XX series refurbished Garmins these days. I'd like to upgrade the 2610 to something with XM and/or pick up an extra cheaper unit (2720?) for the car.

Anyone seen any good StreetPilot deals recently?

Refurb 2720's have been all over EBay for $100-120 with latest software/maps and one year warranty.

Have not checked recently,but you will likely go on kicking yourself for missing that 2730 deal.IF they are available,they seem to be up around $300 now.

I got a refurbished 2720 on Amazon for about $100 with a one year warranty in April. The actual seller was Electro Biz, or something like that, but I see that they currently do not have a storefront in Amazon.

I'd like to replace my 2610 with another 2610. I'm starting to get the shaky screen all the time, but I like this model better than I do any of the 27xx and 28xx models.

Anyone know where they might still be selling refurbed 2610s?

$175 w/o the XM antenna.

They were selling for $130 a few months ago WITH the antenna!
