Hi Neil,

I can't comment on the Garmin unit you're talking about as I'm not familiar with it (ie know of it - but haven't used one).

Diamond is right though, I recently bought a Magellan Meridian through eBay. Brand new, in original packaging - factory sealed etc for $280 landed to my front door using express insured shipping. :-)

I love the Meridian, and am very happy with my purchase.

If you are interested in more details, I'd be happy to fill you in - email me :-)

If that is just a basic Emap then it is $100 too high.
Try Johnny Appleseedwho do mail order all over Aus and have a good reputation.

You may also want to consider a power cable, data cable and mount.
GPSozin Sydney, are best for cables.
For mounts you can use the Garmin mount or, if your dash is the right shape, just a piece of velcro.

The Australian basemap is pretty basic with only a reasonable coastline and main highways.
You may wish to consider the Mapsource Metroguide mapping CD and a data card.

Neil, for $500 u can get one from the states, but you can get a Magellan Platinum, not a basic one, but a very good one.

They are $1000au, you can get for $270us,($500ish)! Thats new as well.

$540 will get you near top of range Magellan from USA with cables etc.. Change the basemap to aussie, and your set.

Magellan have the best maps in respect of amount of detail/info, however, Garmin have the best graphics.
