    Good luck with EMS. I ordered and later got the dreaded "Sorry, we don't have any" email days after completing the order.

    Just wait, GPSCITY won't divulge the sale date but I think they will have a really big sale as they did for black friday which was deeply discounted. I'll post it here when they dump their inventory, just before or after xmas.

    I got a Montana 600 for $399 from GPSCentral during their "Black Friday" sale. Who knows when/if they'll have another. GPSCity would not match that price (I asked).

    I went that route as well after EMS screwed me. Two days from Canada to PA. It was a very smooth transaction.

    Yup. This is the third GPS I've bought from them.

    I have been checking the GPS Central and GPS City daily and as mentioned by previous poster they have not put the 650T on sale yet. It has been at $589 for the past two weeks. I checked ebay and amazon also but as a previous posted stated Garmin may not recognize the warranty from those sellers. If anyone knows of a better price please post here or PM me. Thanks.

    Or if you know when the sale will occur please advise.

    The price-tracking site decide.com tries to track and anticipate price changes for online electronics. It makes recommendations on whether the time is right to buy. You can have it send you alerts for price drops and increases.

    I think the best bet is REI

    Cost is 550 + free shipping + 10% back at the end of the year if you are a member + you can return any REI purchase a any time... Like two years from now if you smash it with a rock they will replace or give you a full refund. Crazy.

    I have a hard time supporting anything REI sales, they are joined at the hip with the Sierra Club. Which is normally not in favour of sharing the trails/land, etc. with motorcycles.
