2730---DAMN!!!!! Help with purchasing sites, Cosco is out

OK, Finally have the money, went to Costco.com and POOF, no more 2730's!!!! Called them, they said that the site is real-time, since they are currently out of stock, it ain't on the site. Told me that it may be a couple weeks before they get any--when they do (assuming that they do) they will pop back up on the site.

Called two local area shops, they told me here in the Dallas Area they only keep the Magellan units in shop, that for Garmin you have to order from the website.

They have the 2720, which I don't want, and the 2820 which while it has bluetooth does not come with the $270 external XM antenna that comes free with the 2730.

Anyone know of another source for $699 or approximately that much...I have a 600 mile trip in 10 days and am notorious for getting lost, will likely end up somewhere in Tijuana, some Federale riding my confiscated LT, and trying to imagine that my new roomie isn't a 400 pound Mexican native but is really Angelina Joile...


Please help...

With an imagination like that, I'm not sure we can help.

HAve you tried http://www.tvnav.com/ or http://www.cyclegadgets.com/? Both sites have supported us over the years and have great reputations.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Hey Pete,

I've had success in the past ordering GPS product from GPSCity.com

I just checked their price, and it's a bit more @ $820.

Maybe if you can't find anything else.....

Good luck,

2730 Purchase

If Costco can sell them for $699 perhaps another vendor could sell them to us on a group purchase closer than the $800+ that they are presently selling for on other sites.

Any takers?

Amazon's got it

I had exactly the same experience. I wound up buying it from Amazon for $800 ... $100 more than Costco. You snooze you loose. Shows you the size of the markup on these things, doesn't it?
