    Awesome! I had just given my cheap-but-new little TomTom to my little sister, as she had never had a portable GPS before. With your tip I can replace it with a waterproof one, which even has pre-loaded topo maps.

    Too cool!

    Thanks!:clap

    There is a coupon box after the boxes for credit card info.

    NUVI500 and then update will get price to $150.00

    Went that far this morning, for the heck of it (ordered mine yesterday), and price was still $150.00.

    There is a GPS deal thread in the making tracks forum. Nevertheless, good deal, I paid $20 more for a refurb a few weeks back. Good unit thus far.

    It will come with the standard Nuvi suction cup windshield mount and the standard Nuvi narrow cradle.
