    I, for one, am glad to see it posted here. It is an equipment item. I mostly hang out in the equipment section (99% of the time), and have yet to lurk around the GPS area.

    Anyway, thanks for the post! I'm ordering one now.:clap

    In the Costo Zumo 450 thread that was closed, someone asked how you receive the 2009 map upgrade. The answer is that you download it from Garmin's website as part of the registration process.

    Here is a GPSr for free. You need to open a Discover Card and use it once to get the GPSr. I know this is not a scam. I heard about it from some geocachers I know personally. They recieved there unit very quickly. I am waiting for my card. <!-- m -->http://www.mygpsoffer.com/<!-- m -->

    I don't think the Nuvi 200 is a good GPS for our bikes. it looks like a good deal if you wanted it for your car, though.

    I agree especially not being waterproof. However if you don't have one and want to try one out this would be a good way.

    Colorado 400T and 300 have just come through on a price reduction at REI - 400T is now $439.95 and the 300 is now $349.95. There is also a $50 mail-in rebate.

    Can we change back to doing this by GPS type in a thread? No offense, but I and many on here are probably only looking for deals for a specific GPS (ZUMO for me), and thus don't want to sift through a bunch of crap to find a deal on the GPS we're targeting.

    Can we unlock the "Zumo Price Fest" thread? That is specific to what I'm looking for. This Sticky isn't very helpful in that regard.

    As usual Canadian's get screwed again. Zumo 450 is $629.00 at Costco.ca
    and $349.00 at costco.com?Are Zumo 450's avalible at the costco locations
    or just on line? I'm going to Buffalo this week end and my pick one up if it's avalible at the store's.

    Those of you who want something for the bike and boat might look at this as a good option. Rebate period begins November 1. Brings price down under $570. Rebate available on units purchased from any Garmin dealer.

    I found this on another forum but thought I would share here on ADVRider. The Garmin 2730 seems to be a decent Motorcycle GPS that has some great functions. XM Radio, MP3 just to name a few. You can buy them now for around $175 shipped to your door from places like Amazon, Ebay etc. Then if you decide that XM is not for you sell the XM antenna model GXM30 for $100 on Ebay and you have a very capable GPS for under $100 bucks. Where else you gonna get one at that price. You can't even buy a decent MP3 player for $75 and this will give you GPS. Check it out.

    The cool thing about Garmin is that if you call them, they will upgrade your new unit with new maps. The 2009 maps are out, but I bought a unit on sale that had 2008 maps, but one quick phone conversation and the update was available from the mygarmin website. Be careful with other brand's units on sale though, as map updates can be $80-100.

    Another great value is the Garmin Nuvi 500, for those wanting to step up.

    Its a bright screen waterproof unit, and so also makes a great motorcycle GPS. In addition to road maps, it also has topographical maps for offroad riding/hiking.

    And btw, by waterproof, they don't mean water resistant. You can use it submerged in an aquarium as seen here:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALDiGADCl9c

    Its available on ebay right now for $370 free shipping. Search slickdeals.net for how to use the Microsoft Live 25% off on ebay purchases (you have to have a paypal account, but they are easy to set up).

    Total shipped no tax is $277, which is a much better deal than the Zumo niche product they sell. :clap
