Great deal on GPS

I just got this email this afternoon and ordered one. I've never seen a portable / in car GPS this cheap before... comes with ac/dc adapter for the car, window mount, and software... only $79.

Anyways, it's only on sale for 72 hours, and I thought other people might be interested in it.

how are you liking it?

at first I was kinda bummed 'cuz I wanted a widescreen (I didn't know I was getting one and I almost went out and bought a 255w/265w), but, I carry it with me so much that I'm really happy it's just the 3.5"...plus it blocks less of the road when mounted.

I picked up a hard case/screen protector/home charger adapter package at Future Shop for $20 on boxing day and just today I picked up a second charger (for the house) and second suction cup (for the lowrider) for $30 for both...

It's already helped me a bunch (especially for work) and I can't wait 'till my g/f and I go for our big roadtrip this summer

two home chargers? either, these devices have batteries the size of your IQ OR you found a second use for them as butt plugs.

I picked up the same one on Boxing day. Been fairly impressed with it. I don't knwo how quick it's routes are because I am using it in a city that I have never been to before. When putting in an address it is great. When using the points of interest function it has lead me to dead ends, to apartments where a gas station should be etc. But i've been here(Ottawa) 4 days now and have been relying on the GPS. If I shut the thing off, guarenteed I will get lost Time to shut it off! haha

I really like it so far. My gf's dad has had the exact same one for about 6 months and I have borrowed it a few times whenever I go out of town and found it great so they got me one for xmas so I would stop using his :P. I haven't tried anything else out to compare too but I find the nuvi easy to use. Battery life is pretty good I find but I don't use it other then in the car so I always have the plug in there if the battery gets low
