A few months ago I had to get our second GPS unit as we moved towns and I didn't have time to learn the area. So I went with some 130 buck Garmin.
Given no cash income for maps, maybe they had to do this or go under?
Anyone else purchase an Alpine NVE-P1 navigation unit for their Alpine head unit? These units were $300 new and you were supposed to be able to update the maps and POI via usb computer connection. No software or map updates were ever made available. Now Alpine is charging you $99 to exhange your old unit with a new one with updated software and maps. Smacks of consumer fraud to me. Considereing filing a lawsuit.
