    The address that this URL is registered to, 3256 Lochmere Lane, New London CT, does not exist according to Google Maps. In fact according to Google, "Lochmere Lane" does not exist in New London. Or anywhere else in CT. SCAM.

    From what I see on WhoIs, pretty safe to assume it's a scam site.

    What about the whois is suspicious? That it’s an individual rather than a business?

    The business address for this website in Cambridge MA does not exist. There is no such street.

    The previous listings available lead me to believe the seller gets wholesale lots of returned stuff - lots of tool batteries at the top - so maybe he came into a batch of Nav IVs somehow? His feedback is good, and there's some possible recourse through Paypal - though I've not had luck getting much money back as a buyer the two times I've tried...

    If you're concerned it's fake or some such thing, message the seller and ask why they have so many to sell - if you get an answer that sounds like BS, it probably is.

    Well I went ahead and took a gamble and purchased that Nav 6 on ebay the one from 2 posts up and it all seems legit and working properly. Well worth the $400.
