    Check in advance to be sure. Someone reported a while back that Garmin was NOT upgrading maps on some of the closeout sales.

    I picked up a 2730 and got it the other day. It came with the 2008 version of MapSource and version 9.0 of City Navigator NT. I had (have actually) the 2610 and find the 2730 will do just fine. I hope to take heeeYouuge ass trip next year!!.. :)

    Don't know the details just yet - but in this month's AMA magazine there is an ad that says that Garmin is going to give AMA members a 20% discount on two purchases per year. Offer is supposed to start on 11/19/08 www.garmin.com/ama

    I checked today and didn't find anything out there.

    Hope it is 20% off the best retail price you can find.

    I was able to make an exclusive buy from Garmin on Colorado 300s and 400s. MSRP Colorado 300 $499.99, now $269.95 after rebate with free ship. MSRP Colorado 400 $599.99, now $319.95 after rebate with free ship. I don't think they're as nice as a 60cx or csx for dualsport use, but at this price they're certainly a good option. I'll see if I can dig up a similar deal on the zumo 450 if that is of interest here...

    Click here to view Colorados.

    Mods - close this thread if this is a violation. Since this thread is a sticky and this deal is so far below anywhere else I thought I'd give my fellow inmates a crack at it... Kind of awkward since I'm active on these forums but also try and make my living selling this stuff...

    The AMA discount is 20-25% off Garmin's retail prices which make them competitive to street pricing.

    Here's a deal if you have some time:
    If you have an eBay account and Paypal account, go to www.live.com, create a MS account and search for a gps (or anything else that you're in the market for). Click on the link to eBay and you have 60 mins to find a buy-it-now item and get 25% off the best BIN price on eBay.

    Read the fine print but basically you have up to 12 purchases to get 25% off (does NOT include vehicles). There is a 60 day wait for your refund.

    There are deals for other sites for less off but still worth looking into.

    Yeah - the AMA discount is underwhelming vs. street prices.
