    I have a chance to buy a Garmin Zumo 450 complete for $125.00.
    Is this a good investment?

    I had a 450. It worked fine. If you don't care about the differences between the 450 and the 550, why pay for a 550?

    And $125? Is this a good investment? No. Real estate is a good investment. Amazon stock and Google stock is a good investment. Buying a used GPS is not a good investment -- it's what most people call a "purchase." Very different from an investment.

    I would pass. You probably can get a much newer Zumo for same money. The one i had was old, and that was 2010! If it matters to you, the Zumo 660 and later units handle tracks much better than 450/550s.
