    Garmin_Nuvi_660
    The Garmin Nuvi 660 is an excellent widescreened GPS system, that has cone well in the market and has been the object of many people's desire since it was introduced late last year.

    Amazon just dropped its price on the Nuvi 660 to $699; well under the $750 or so it was running a lot of the time leading up to the Holidays.

The other cool thing to do is look on eBay for the coupons; I found one that had $30 off any purchase $150 or over. So my total price came out to $169 plus tax and free shipping." - wow.

    Mio C310X - $199 at Circuit City

    MioC310GPS.JPG
    Circuit City just posted a new lower price on the Mio C310x - $199 with free shipping. This seems to be a pretty good price point that will be hit here or there for a while - (Fry's has it for $198) Over at the Fat Wallet forums, they talk about going into the store where it is priced a lot higher, and getting a Price Match down to the CircuitCity.com price. Also some good discussions on the deal at BensBargains.

    If you want more info, read my review of the Mio C310x.
