GPS Steals and Deals - 6/29

A few stories this last week or so:

  • We have the Mio C520 in for review
  • I previewed the new TomTom GO 720 after playing with it on my trip to TomTom.

    Check out my pricing predictions for the spring and summer - things are starting to line up with what I expect is a good price on these models.

    Highlights

  • The new TomTom ONE XL is around $349. Read my Review of the TomTom ONE XL.

  • The Mio C220 is selling around $180 through Amazon sellers. Read my Review of the Mio C220.

  • Noticed that the Nuvi 200 is dropping; around $315. Better meeting my expectations on the price vs benefits. See my Hands on Review of the Nuvi 250 for an idea of how well this will perform.

  • Very solid Garmin Nuvi 350 dropped to $370, and it's the #2 seller in Electronics at Amazon, and their most popular GPS. More info on the Nuvi 350.

  • The Nuvi 680 is selling at Amazon - $674 - Down $50 in the last few weeks. - see my hands on Review of the Nuvi 680.
  • Garmin Nuvi 670 - Need to travel to Europe and navigate when you get there? Garmin Nuvi 670 comes pre-loaded with both US and Euro maps. It's the very capable Nuvi 660 base unit with the extra maps pre-loaded. Also consider the Nuvi 370, or the Nuvi 270 which also have Euro Maps pre-loaded. (Confused? Compare the Nuvi line here)

    New Rebate this Week:

  • Garmin Forerunner 305 - $50 rebate and
  • Edge 305 - $75 Rebate when you sign up for the Powerbar Nutrition Edge Newsletter
  • Offer ends 11/30/07 (We're still waiting on new fitness products. We postulated about new Fitness GPS models back when Garmin released their earnings in February and let's face it we're going to run out of summer up here soon, but recall the original Edge units were announced at the end of August 2005.
