    I am wondering what a reasonable price would be for a Garmin 478? I am thinking about going old school on my gps set up and was interested in this unit. I just missed one in the FM for less than $200 with a touratech mount, but on eBay all I see are units not much lower than $300. Thoughts?


    Thanks!

    I still see them sell for $500 around here, with mounts.

    And no, you ain't getting mine. :D

    Still the best units out there, I do have a 276C and possibly a 378 if you are interested. If you are not going to use an XM antenna, little difference.
