City Navigator 7 price decrease...

I just spoke with someone at Garmin, who informed me that that cost for the City Navigator price has been lowered from $150 to $75.

Apparently Navtech does the vector mapping and lowered the price to Garmin, and they in turn lowered the cost to us

So for anyone with an older version looking to upgrade now is as good a time as any.

ElJeffe did a review, on the LT site I think and the net net of it was if you are on 6, V7 wasn't that much different, wait for v8. If you are on 5, or earlier, then it's worth it. THANKS FOR THE UPDATE.

V7 versus V5

I would agree with your advice. I found alot of problems with the Mapsource V5 software. There were ( I called them fractures ) where roads did not line up within the GPS so if you plotted from A to B up the same highway, it would autoroute a long way around to get to B. It was also missing most of Atlantic Canada. In hindsight, a very shabby release. I upgraded to V6 and life is good.

If you have V5, you will love what V6/V7 give you.

Not sure how this thread surfaced, but v8 is a $75 upgrade from Garmin now.
