    Now that the supply of 60Cx drying up, and with them the West Marine specials, this looks to be a good or even better deal!

    Garmin Map 78 with free shipping for $199 from West Marine.

    This is the updated replacement for the 76 and shares the same upgrades as the 62 has over the tried and true 60Cx but with one big differance;
    The 62 lost the HD power plug (USB only) while the 78 has retained it.
    If you don't want a touch screen unit this is it.

    That's not much of a deal, since most reputable stores like GPSCity.com often have the 600, non refurbished, at that price on sale. Also, almost everything else listed on that web page is about 20% more expensive than it is a GPSCity.

    The Tempe, for instance, is $44 at your source, and $30 at GPSCity

    The Friction Mount Kit is $69, vs $55 at GPSCity.

    I wouldn't buy from the "Factory Outlet Store".

    Stole this deal from lmychajluk in the Montana thread: Cabela's has the 650T for $549.

    Turned out to be over $600 for me shipped, but if anyone is interested but doesn't have Cabela's points/rewards, go to the 650T on Amazon (make sure you have 650T selected) and scroll to feedback (in light blue) at the bottom of the page choose tell us about a lower price. All you have to do is paste the Cabela's link and type in the price. If enough people do it Amazon will usually lower their price also.

    Even if you aren't interested, it would be most kind of you to take a second to tell Amazon about the lower price to help enourage them to drop the price for those of us that are :D.

    In case you gents are interested in getting Zumo 350LM, there is a $100 rebate from Garmin. Personally, I would still go with 66x, but $100 off is not a shabby deal...

    I didn't read the rules (would suggest that you do), but I found this promo on BikeBandid.com, which leads me to believe that you can buy the GPS from other authorized dealers and not Garmin directly. If that is the case, I wonder if you can double-dip and apply discounts (say 10% off by vendor x) and then submit $100 rebate? Again, I didn't read Terms & Conditions (i.e. rules) so it's all guessing at this point.

    is there anywhere that ever puts the standard CNNA DVD on sale? I see lots of "coupons" in the weekend flyers (dicks sporting goods, etc) and wasn't sure if they always exclude anything GPS or if I just need to pony up and pay $75 for another map. I have one CNNA DVD for my 276C but my understanding is that I will have to "buy" another CNNA DVD for a Montana?

    I just checked on the Map City sale and the Oregon 450 for $199 looks like a deal but can you get the software free on downloads or is the $80 -$100 option all you have? I do not have a GPS and have just started Dual Sport so I do not know what I need. Are topo maps a have to have when you use gpx files ?
    Thanks, Arkie1

    It is getting hit hard by the Hot deal's sites so not sure how long it will last.

    GPSCity has a thread in the vendor forums - they've always been a great place to buy from but this makes them even better!

    West Marine has the Garmin 78 on sale once again starting today... forgot to .look for how long - for around $200 again.

    It's been on and off sale price for the last couple of months, another inmate said this is a seasonal thing and didn't think they we going on again... but it did!

    The 78 has the good power plug, waterproof, hand held Marine unit... only limitation is the small screen - same size as the 60/76/62

    I am looking for my first GPS for my bike. Primary use is to map out/borrow a cool loop of unpaved roads for a day of DS riding. Bass Pro has the 62S for $250, and several places have the 450T for $200 right now. I see the price as essentially a wash. Which one is better for what I want to do with it?

    TIA

    Unless you really have some need, "S" save money without it.

    Big problem with the 62, it does not have 12V power input. Consider the 78 from WestMarine.com for $200.
