    Hi

    I got my Zumo 550 from Gadget Trend. Both North Amercia and Thai map all loaded up and one with free Thai map update from ERSI. I think it was 41,000Baht (about 36Baht to $ at the time). It is near 31 to $ now.

    If you can get a Zumo from USA you can alway purchase the Thai map seperately for 7,000 Baht which may save overall cost. The Thai map cost has come down a lot, I think it was almost double a year or two ago.

    The website gives all the details and I found them really knowledgable and friendly.

    Hope this helps.

    Eagle GPS in Chang Mai in Panthip Plaza has them, didnt check the price, as I only went there for the Thailand city Navigator map.
    Yes it's now 7000 baht.
