Looking at this item as a birthday present. Anyone have any info on it?

Check the dates of the internal map in the unit. If it;s outdated, what's the upgrade price?

Google, is your friend.

I like mine the only thing I dont like is that i cant mark a spot unless I have a address and when you are mving to different grounds and using it going to hunting spots or just want to mark a spot along the road you cant. I think their is only one other kind of Garmin that can. Depends on how important it is to you.

Garmin, if bought at Cabelas, will give you free updates for the 2010 mapping right now. 255W=Great product!

I've got one and very happy with it. As a matter of fact I like the Garmin much better then the built in unit in my wife's Lexus.

Like mine as well... easy to use (which was important to us when buying one).

We replaced our Magellon with the Garmin. Much better. Works great.

got mine at best buy with the 3 year protection plan and one of those dash mounts for my girlfriends and I's 4 year anniversary. Garmin makes great products, sometimes screwy directions...but its a awesome for finding anything while you are on the road. (In n Out is best searchable "In-N-Out") :)
