Boy this is tempting. There are some features on here that would be really handy. Maybe a mother's day present for my wife and then I can borrow it periodically.

i've watched my stepfather get taken by woot one too many times... one time that included dog runs that my 9lb dog "broke" within minutes of the first use.

I got a "ok" deal on a usb keyboard with a bunch of buttons that do extra's on the mac and a smokin deal on 32gb usb flash drives but thats all I've ordered. One can get junk from there as well.

There was a couple of 'bag-o-crap' days that people got big screen tv's out of. Don't know how those turned out but people still go nuts on boc days.

Thanks for posting this. I had forgeten about WOOT and havent used it for over a year. I've had many great deals from them before, and even used to be able to make money on eBay reselling.

I snatched one of these up, as it has many more features than my current Garmin, which the maps are outdated. Hmmm, $100 for new maps, or $80 for a better unit? Cool

I got the new Garmin yesterday and thought I's write a quick review.

I have to say for the money, this thing is amazing. Can enter coords and cache with it, voice recognition works flawlessly, has a MP3 player, photo viewing, compatible with cell phones for hands free, detailed maps, it goes on and on. Also think it's nice that new voices can be downloaded, as well as new vehicles. Just a ton of great features for almost no cost!

Not trying to rub it in rat, but tested it out a bit today, some of the features far exceed my expectations. ie: never figured I'd use the MP3 player because I have one in my truck that broadcasts FM to my system, but after trying the NUVI I'll be selling my broadcaster. The FM quality of the broadcast is crystal clear on just about any clear FM channel, and it broadcast much higher quality sound. My Nuvi through FM, sounds as good as a CD in the deck.

I havent found the bluetooth settings and sync'd my phone, but I'm guessing it's as flawless.

The voice feature is the best part. Hasnt missd a beat, even clontrols the music,video player. $80 VERY well spent.

I;ve since seen this same unit for sale on=line for just $5 more.
