You're right. They are more likely to be nearer $250 used. The Montana 600 was as low as $400 new at various sales like Black Friday, Boxing Day, etc, so I expect to see more prices like that especially now that there are newer models out like the Oregon 6XX series, and the soon to be released Monterra.

I figure all the low prices we're seeing on Oregon 4XX and 5XX must mean they'll be discontinued before long. Not that they are any less useful... The little Oregons really are good units.

But the 78 line is just as powerful as the Oregons, and it has the rugged 4 pin power connector. And for $200 at a number of stores including West Marine, the 78 is the best bargain out there right now.

Good, I think you will like it. Mine gets daily use as a speedometer/trip meter on my Vespa, I uee the cigarette lighter plug on a switched outlet on the scooter and it turns itself on and off with the ignition.

It has a nice selectable automotive dashboard

Ordered the Oregon today

Ordered the Oregon today, I needed an entry level unit to see how it works out for me. If I like it or find it lacking, Ill save some bucks and invest in something else in a year or so.

I will follow up and let you know how this works out for me. I have alot to learn about using the GPS.

Open source mapping is a wonderful thing, not to mention the old Topo v8 disk I have sitting here. . There are options.

Just ordered the ram cradle with ball from Overton's for under $14. Got plenty of arms and mounts here already.

GPS city will match the price of Cabelas on the oregon unit for those interested. I shot them a note this weekend and they responded. Indicated 149 was below there cost.

Garmin Oregon 550T Sale $229 from $599

Cabela's have the Garmin Oregon 550T on sale from $599.00 sale price $229.00
it also has a 3mg camera in it.

This has just been reduced due to a new model coming out it is on other sites as well but Cabela's was the lowest I could find and a reliable company.

I pulled the trigger on a Garmin 62S from Cabela's for $220 last month. Well, all I have done with it since is put batteries in it, let it find the satellites, and then I turned it off. I am just so busy now, I don't know if I have the mindshare to try to figure out how to use it (only have used car gps previously), buy some topo maps (or maybe find some free ones), and find a mount for it. I would think I could get my money back out of it ($220 shipped CONUS). Someone talk me into learning how to use it or putting it in the FM!

I would have gone with 78 for $200 from WestMarine.com don't know their price for "S" but do you need it?

If you keep it, check out my 60/76/62/78 setup notes on DualSportWest.com It will make it much mor user friendly.
