I was wrong. It wasn't 30%. . . it was worse at 37% off last years sales pace. :shock: http://marketplayground.com/2010/12/09/gps-sales-fall-37-over-black-friday/
Phone-Wielding Shoppers Strike Fear Into RetailersBy MIGUEL BUSTILLO And ANN ZIMMERMANTri Tang, a 25-year-old marketer, walked into a Best Buy Co. store in Sunnyvale, Calif., this past weekend and spotted the perfect gift for his girlfriend.Last year, he might have just dropped the $184.85 Garmin global positioning system into his cart. This time, he took out his Android phone and typed the model number into an app that instantly compared the Best Buy price to those of other retailers. He found that he could get the same item on Amazon.com Inc.'s website for only $106.75, no shipping, no tax. Mr. Tang bought the Garmin from Amazon right on the spot.
I've been watching the PN-60 for a few weeks and the prices they show are legit.PN-60w including the SPOT is $400 in today's lightning deals at Amazon. Since I don't follow that model, I have no idea whether that's a good deal or not. :)

Yesterday Amazon also had a 10% sale on select GPS units. Looked like mostly vehicle styles, but I noticed that the PN-60 (no spot) was one of them and after the 10% off, final price was right around $243. That was the best I've seen that.
True, prices continue to drop. But there are some sale items posted here that are better than "everyday" prices - especially for an item like the Oregon 450 at $250 which Amazon sells for $325. That's a 23% discount. :D
