Price Watch: Refurbished Magellan GPS, $59.99
It's a refurb with a rebate, and the model is a couple years old, but it's also just about the best deal ever on a full-feature navigation system.
Ladies and gents, we have a new low! Buy.com has the Magellan RoadMate 2200T GPS for $59.99 shipped (after a $30 mail-in rebate). It's a refurbished unit, but it's also the least-expensive navigation system I've seen yet.
Needless to say, this model is a couple years old, so don't expect a lot of bells and whistles. It does offer text-to-speech, music and photo players, an optional traffic-monitoring kit, and a "smart detour" feature. Hmmm. Come to think of it, you get some bells and whistles, after all. It's even waterproof!
, the major complaint being its sluggishness in switching between applications. I don't know about you, but I can live with that--seeing as I'd probably never use the other applications, anyway.
Because this is a refurb, the warranty lasts just 90 days. The rebate offer (PDF) expires February 4, but I suspect that these RoadMate 2200Ts will sell out well before that date. A full-feature navigation system for $60 is really tough to pass up.
