You could use one of these for your sprint.

Anyway, I got my 2720 a bit ago and it sure looks as new as it could. I didn't get any free upgrades, but not going to sweat it.

WTF? The 2720 does not have an output for headphones for the chick to tell me when to turn? That's Lame. Other than that, seems like it will suit me fine

You want a chick to bug you when you are riding. WEIRD

I can change it to just a beep or something. I am notorious for spacing off and missing my turns.

Then she'd be bugging you 'cause you missed the turns. Want you to U-turn when safe and all that.

BTW - I haven't used the 2720 yet, but my wife is happy with it.

Cyclegadget also sells it. $5 more.

TT sells a std. RAM mount, arm, bar mount with a ubolt as a kit. I don't need all that, so I will likely be ordering through cyclegadget. Both are great companies though.

Garmin 276c Refurbs for $316

So I've had my third 276c stolen and started to look around for my fourth and of course by this time I'm getting a little bit thrifty about my new GPS so I look for refurbs as they're generally just open box specials. While I was looking I looked for used and it seems people here are paying $325-350 for used ones thinking they come with software but once software is unlocked it's done and you can't unlock it for a different user or device. Bastards.

Anyway, I found this and figured I'd share with the inmates: Garmin 276c Refurbished for $316

They have pretty decent prices on memory and software too so for $500 I got the 276c, City Navigator NT, and a 512mb memory stick. Not an endorsement but just some friendly information. I personally think the 276c is the best GPS out there for Adv Riders and this being my fourth one I think should speak volumes. My last one survived being head butted by me after I torpedoed my 950 into a ditch at 40mph. I absolutely flattened the touratech GPS mount and broke my nose on my way over the bars but the Garmin came out with nary a scratch. Too bad some scum swiped it from my truck a month later.

Anyway, hope it helps out an inmate or 9 (the number left).

Well I'm hopeful that I've not led anyone down a dubious path so I'll let you all know when I've gotten mine. I'm guessing they manually update the stock count after the weekend. They have a good vendor rating on Google so I don't suspect anything amiss.

I'm looking forward to having a GPS again.

Quest 2 for $199 from Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Portable-Weatherproof-Handheld-MapSource/dp/B000A5T2XG/ref=pe_17090_11670820_as_img_3/

Barely more than the MSRP on the maps alone.
