Time to check out the product page and very good reviews (4.5 out of 5.0) over at bestbuy.com

I have a similar model, identical save for Bluetooth and Traffic updates. That’s to say this one has 99.8% of the functionality of mine and I don’t go anywhere without my Garmin. Buy it!

The sidebar info it provides is great entertainment when burning thru endless miles of interstate and highways elsewhere…

If you happen to buy this Garmin, do yourself a favor and rush over to Amazon’s site to snag this carry & storage case…

AmazonBasics Hard Carrying Case for 5-Inch GPS - Black - $9.49

Or this Garmin branded case…

Garmin Universal 5-Inch Carrying Case - $11.99

You can afford to splurge with the bucks you’re saving here.

And that’s all I gotta say about it!

I have had Garmin GPS for 5-10 years. The company stands behind the product going as far as replacing my GPS several months after the warranty had expired on more then one occasion.

I have an older Garmin with the traffic cable. Can I use my old cable with this new device so I can get traffic information?

I will say this about Garmin, my first exposure to their customer service was positive. I bought this same unit off of Ebay, but with a smaller screen. I tried to get map updates but had an issue. My coworker, who is a big Garmin fan, got on the phone and we were speaking to a customer service rep instantly. The rep confirmed my model was not a lifetime maps model, so back it went.

With shipping it is only saving you $10 vs the mothership for a non-refurb.

Great Point - Thanks! Just saw it there, too.

Do the lifetime updates apply to Europe maps?

Amazon has this at $95.99 today. Prime means free shipping, so once again, what is the saving?

Isn’t it “the lower 48”?

LOL - Another woot failure here. This is the best discount site for laughing at. ‘Hey, want to save 10 bucks and get some used thing that already broke once?’

No, Just US.

From the features:

Detailed Maps with Free Lifetime Updates

Maps of the lower 49 states, plus free lifetime¹ map updates, let you easily find addresses and millions of points of interest.

Bought a new one for this price from Kohls on Black Friday.

I had an earlier Garmin and it was reliable, however map updates were not included and stupid expensive - as much as this unit with lifetime maps.

Easy to use, easy to update and you can even transfer saved info from your other Garmins.

That said, $79.99 is a good price but like others have noted, for $10 more you can get a new one from Amazon.

Best Buy is in the ballpark but a bit higher at $98.99 with free shipping.

Sometimes the issue isn’t that the item broke, but that the user didn’t like it, or didn’t know how to use it.

I have this same model that I bought around Christmas for about $90. It is not a top of the line model,but it is a marked improvement over the old Garmin it replaced. Just bought a sinle time map of Europe on SD for about $20 on ebay that plugged right in and works like a charm.
Unit doesn’t allow pre-planning trips from remote locations but that isn’t a deal breaker for me (you can always make it go from where you are to the ‘start’ point you want to use then add points past there and check out your route/times.) It also captures a satellite much faster than the old model.
Updates are permitted 4 x a year “for the life of the GPS unit” so whenever they decide enough is enough it will be unsupported for updates, but that is really not that big deal since roads don’t change that often anyways!

I love my Garmin but I wouldn’t buy one without traffic. I know where the traffic jams happen in my home town but it’s a huge help when out of town. Mine has saved me a bunch of time routing me around freeway closures strange towns.
