Wanted: GPS Deals

If anybody spots a killer deal on Zumo 550/450 or a TomTom Rider from one of the vendors would you drop a post in here. Actually we could make it a killer deal on any GPS.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

found my 550 on ebay, in the no bidding section. Ebay express. I did not go with the absolute cheapest due to my past camera deals in New York, instaed I was in the lower third for about 699.00. GPSSPECIALS was the name of the place. Very well packaged and quick shipping, not a second and had everything it should have came with. 100% positive feedback with over 2300 scoring.

You can get the cheapest deals on ebay but watch the shipping charges. Truth is for me peace of mind is worth an extra $25. My favorite palce is www.getfeetwet.com. They have the 550 for $724.50 right now.

I don't ride on a dyno.

I bought my Zumo 550 from gpsonsale.com a few months ago for $669. They are in Arizona and were easy to deal with. I paid $27 for 2nd day air and got my unit two days after I ordered it. Came complete with all normal accessories: bike and car mounts, power cables for both mounts, cds for unit and maps. Highly recommend them, check current price. Their phone is 480-982-0653 if you want to talk to someone. I ordered mine on-line with no problems.
CAUTION: if you order from an on-line auction (e-bay) Garmin will not honor the warrantee! You can read this statement on Garmins web site.

I saw that about a month ago but had a dumb a$$ attack and didn't order one. Thats the best price I've seen but they are $699. now, still not bad.

Not only will Garmin not honor a warranty, they will not sell you cables, accessories or anything else for the unit when you buy it from an auction, flea market, pawn shop or other "gray market" sources.

I have purchased a GPS and accessories from www.gpsdiscount.com with great results. Shipping is free for orders over $500, and they ship fast. This week, I ordered a RAM handlebar mount for my Garmin eTrex Vista ($32) on Monday and received it on Thursday with their $5 shipping. They usually have very good prices on their stock.

When I go to the Web site to order accessories, they don't ask where I bought the GPS, or even whether I actually _have_ one.

Unless they are a certified dealer. I also bought a Square Trade ext. 2 yr. warranty for my Garmin Quest.

This is so, but if you need something specifically designed for your pawn-shop-purchased Garmin GPS, Garmin will tell you, flat-out, they will not support it. I think it has to do with not supporting possibly stolen equipment.

I've purchased two from buydig.com. Currently $686.49. Standard shipping free.

I've never found the best deals for new GPS's on eBay.

Best over-all info site is probably http://gpsinformation.net/

But for you I suggest http://www.zumoforums.com/zumo/.

You can spend a lot of time trying to save $10.
