Bloody hell this is cheap. I paid a lot more for the Garmin 660. Fantastic bit of kit, never let me down.

Thanks for the comments guys

Excellent find! Never seen one with widescreen and European mapping this cheap!!

Purchased this from QVC a couple of weeks ago when it was a TSV . I paid £205 inc delivery . It also came with a nice leather case .
This is a fantastic piece of kit and well worth it at that price.:thumbsup:

Nice find. Voted hot!!!

If this is cheap then all the new models Amazon are also selling look cheap too, unless of course they have just come down in price? To be honest I know nothing about the price of the new Garmins anyhow.

Just to let you know this doesn't come with bluetooth(mobile handsfree) or allow you to connect a RDS TMC traffic receiver to it like the NUVI 610/660 does, nor does it have a headphone socket(may be useful for some who want to connect it to an FM transmitter to transmit voices directions via their car audio). Great unit other wise.

good point, but still navigation is the most important thing, at this price, HOT!
