Iím a Sergeant for a local police department outside of Columbus, OH. We had purchased 15 new BMW motorbikes that come with a GPS already installed. We contacted BMW and they informed us Garmin produced the GPSís and the model was a Zumo 550. They gave us a price a little over $1200.00 each, so we did some research on the internet and found Markís Outdoor Gear under 630.00 plus free shipping. We purchased 20 Zumo 550's from them on June 10th and we received 5 different packages, 4 units each, by June 18th.
We came back on July, 15th and purchased 10 more at 625.99 and received these on July 22nd. We are very happy with this company and will continue purchasing from them.
We also purchased 5 more units from PcNation, at 646.80 each, on July 15th and received these on July 21st. They had a free shipping special for fedex 3 day shipping. They shipped on July 16th and rec' on July 21st. Great deal! We are very happy with this company also and will still to buy here. The only thing we found wrong with PcNation units were two of the five were once returned to them and they reshipped them back out to us. We called PcNation and talked to a rep, David, and he was very helpful and had us to return them to him for replacements. We received the two replacements on August 6, 2008.
I believe both of these companies have been worth finding online.
