    A bit like News and a bit like a deal.... Price Drops on Garmin StreetPilot C550 - October 1st

    Deals on GPS's. Here’s a rundown:

  • Recently stumbled across the low price on the Mio C310 - less than $400 - check out our review of it, and consider it at this very motivating price.

  • Garmin Nuvi 350– Blowout price. Well off the $900 list price, making way for the Nuvi 360.

  • Garmin Nuvi 360 is now below $700 and within striking distance of the Nuvi 350 price.

  • Garmin StreetPilot C330 – Now around $400 for this very capable, maps pre-loaded device. Earlier this spring this was selling for the mid-to upper $400’s.

  • Garmin StreetPilot C340 – Also price dropped, now selling for around $450. Text to speech capability – says “Turn right on Maple St.” instead of “Turn Right”; a nice touch for an extra $50. Also optional traffic capability. See our review.

  • Lowrance iWay 350C – $50 Rebate right now. Mid Tier model that we reviewed earlier this year. Highly configurable. Rebate Through 10/30.
