Default Price?

What price were you quoted and did you compare how quickly it hooked into satellites compared to the 60 CSX? I think I found a pretty good deal in Vancouver.

I carry the 530. Most of my riding group also. Good features, have had a problem with 2 way radio sound not working.

I heard the touch screen is really slow and sometimes does not work in cold weather!! I like the Colorado, same unit without the touch screen..

I have the Oregon and have had no issues with it. When it was negative 10 out the only thing I found as with anything, the batteries did not hold up as long. I love the unit. A buddy has a Colorado and it is a nice unit as well. I have herd people complain about the touch screen being to hard to use. I think it is Ok to use, just not as sensitve as my IPod Touch.

I found mine on Flea Bay at christmas and paid $311.00 shipped and include a US Topo CD and micro SD card, all brand new. Local stores are carrying them for $450.00 with nothing included. (This is the 300)

I really liked the user interface, all the functions you need are on each screen. No extra buttons to get confused with. The price was 499 CDN without any maps or anything. If only the iphone was 100% satellite tracked.

Thanks for the input. I was quoted $450 Canadian and $50 for some Topo maps. Think I'll go the Oregon route. I have the first generation etrex. Anything will be a huge improvement. The simple touch screen sure seems easy to navigate around. I think that alone makes it worth it.
