Good GPS Deals Black Friday GPS Deals

    Here's a great deal for the niece or nephew on Santa's list. Amazon has the Geomate, Jr. geocaching satnav for just $50. Extremely simple to use, it's a wonderful way to get the kids outside and introduce them to a wholesome hobby. Highly recommended.
  • dhn 336 Points
    I was wrong. It wasn't 30%. . . it was worse at 37% off last years sales pace. :shock:
    Maybe it's a case of over-saturation.

    Everyone who wants/needs a gps already has one?
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    No where near saturation IMO. There's still a pretty big segment that wants a navigation option, or has one and wishes to move up. But now there's other viable solutions such as smartphones and built-in nav units that are more reasonably priced than in the past. That doesn't necessarily mean they're better solutions than a standalone model, but every smartphone sold is a potential chip away at TomTom, Garmin or "other" pnd sales.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Too many PND companies fighting over too small a pie IMO. And to make it even worse, Garmin has a bewildering assortment of models with subtle differences that the average person can't figure out.

    Natural selection will run its course I expect. I'm sure Garmin will still be there, not sure about some of the others.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    Too many models with unclear feature sets applies to both TomTom and Magellan too. FWIW, I find TT the worst right now.

    From a cover story in today's Wall Street Journal
    Phone-Wielding Shoppers Strike Fear Into Retailers


    Tri 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 Inc.'s website for only $106.75, no shipping, no tax. Mr. Tang bought the Garmin from Amazon right on the spot.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    This one should appeal to a few buyers still on the fence. The Garmin nuvi 1490 LMT (lifetime maps and traffic) at for just $169 with free shipping. Move fast tho, the deal ends pretty soon.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    A really good deal on a 5" GPS, including lifetime maps and traffic, is Amazon's Gold Box Deal today. The full-featured Magellan RoadMate 5045-LM is just $110 with free shipping. Another to act fast on, expires today.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    Geomate Jr is one of the Lightning deals at Amazon today. Just $40, and a great gift for the new geocacher.
  • 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. :)
    It's a good price, but not great. Amazon had it for $355 about a week ago. Thegpsstore had it for $370 back in Novemeber. 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.

    Not anymore. :) Best Buy has the PN-60 for $220 on their website right now. It's backordered however. The PN-60W with SPOT is $355.
  • has the nuvi 255wt for only 79.99. This is the same one they had on Black Friday for 99.99. Too bad the GTM-25 cord isnt worth $70 any more or this could be a really cheap GPS
  • $220... That's a GREAT price! I just checked out their site and it lists the regular price as $269.99, even that's a great starting price. Looks like no one should be paying more than $270 for the PN-60.

    That 255wt is also a great price. I have the 255wt and love it.
  • a lot of great deals after Black friday is over, still, and last week I am sure.

    Some of the Ads I went by to finalize my choice. And I was lucky I bypased restocking fees, and will add the 15.00 if I were to lose due to my Personal decision, and add this to a Garmin 1300 or 1400 series. making this my B'day gift. as te TT was my Holiday gift.

    thank you.

    Another very good deal over at Amazon, with the 1350T for just $99. As usual, the price won't be good for long.

    Upcoming Lightning Deals at Amazon today.

    8:45 AM - Garmin nuvi 205

    9:45 AM - Garmin nuMaps Onetime City Navigator North America NT Map Update

    10:45 AM - Tom Tom XXL 550
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    I am seeing the Nuvi 205 for $68 right now on Amazon, FWIW

    Also the GPSMap 60csx for $200, not a bad price if you are a fan of this older model. :)
  • The prices keep getting better and better! The Nuvi 1450 is at Amazon now for $99.99. I am so tempted to buy it but I'm afraid if I do, the price'll drop in a week :(
  • dhn 336 Points
    Amazon has it for less than $100 including lifetime traffic and maps and free shipping.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    Black Friday is now long gone, but there's still some great deals out there. Amazon has the Garmin nuvi 255LT, with free lifetime traffic, for just $80. No idea how long the price will last.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Nuvi 3790t is currently on sale at REI for $300. I think this is the best price I've seen - it's now selling for $347 at Amazon.
  • gatorguy 328 Points
    I saw this incredible price mentioned at another forum. The Garmin nuvi 1690 connected pnd for only $129, refurbished, at Amazon. With two-years of FREE connected (live) services, this is one deal that's tough to pass up.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Cabela's has several Garmin handheld models on sale in their "Bargain Cave":

    Dakota 20 bundle, including US Topo 100k for $250
    Oregon 450 for $250
    eTrex Legend Hcx for $150
  • Spyder63 331 Points
    Newegg - 1 day only deal. 4/6/11

    GARMIN nüLink! 1695 5.0" GPS Navigator with nuLink Services

    $239.99. PromoCode EMCYTZT388. Free shipping.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Cabela's now has the Dakota 10 on sale for $170. Not a bad entry level deal, assuming that you can live without the compass, altimeter and memory card slot.
  • gtsum2 0 Points
    I should have been watching this closely..those seem like great prices on the Oregon and the Dakota 20
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    REI has the Garmin GPSMap 62S on sale for $280 and the older 60csx on sale for $220. If you're an REI member, there is also a coupon for 20% off on many items. If I read the fine print correctly, it can't be used on these sale items but can be used of regular price products.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    The Nuvi 3790t is on sale for $220 at Best Buy - in store only (not online). If your store does not have it in stock, you can have it shipped to them. This is by far the lowest price I've ever seen on this model.... I bought mine a year ago and paid twice this much! :shock:
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    They must want to clear out their inventory. For a limited time they are selling the Nuvi 1690 for $150:
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Garmin is offering a $50 rebate on your choice of the Oregon 450, 450t, 550 and 550t. Offer is good through the end of September. For more info, see the rebate form here:

    Shop around, and with this rebate you should be able to get an Oregon 450 for about $250, which is pretty close to the all time low. :)
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    GPSCity is offering the Dakota 20 for $210, including a "micro ammo can" for geocachers (whatever that is :lol: )
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    REI is once offering the Oregon 450 for $250 in their Labor Day sale (Aug 26 - Sep 6). But the difference is that this year you can get an additional $50 using Garmin's rebate, lowering the cost to $200. This is by far the best price I've seen on the Oregon 450 - cheaper than a Vista Hcx or Dakota 20. 8)
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    Here comes Black Friday again. :D Cabela's has the Oregon 450 for $250 and a bundle that includes an eTrex Vista Hcx, carrying case and US Topo 100k DVD for $160.

  • I don't know if it's even necessary to buy a GPS on Black Friday anymore. Last year, the prices for GPSs kept dropping even after Black Friday.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    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
  • Target has the Nuvi 1450LMT for $129 now

    Yeah, they definitely are better than everyday prices. I just mean Black Friday isn't the absolute best day to buy GPS, like you would with laptops or TVs.

    Amazon has the Nuvi 40 for $69.99 right now. Seems like a good deal especially with no tax and shipping. Can't decide if it's better than Best Buy's Nuvi 40LM for $84.99. Lifetime maps aren't really needed if you're buying a new GPS once a year :lol:

    Just saw that Amazon will be having the 40LM as a lightning deal tonight at 9pm PST. They'll probably at least be matching Best Buy's price.
  • Boyd 2027 Points
    GPSCity has the Oregon 450 for only $220 today - an all-time low and quite a deal IMO. I believe it's available in Canada for $230 also. Might only be for Black Friday, not sure.
