Thumbs up Good Deals on Garmin 2820

FYI-GetFeetWet.com has some great prices for new Garmin 2820 for $245 and with XM for $320. Even better prices on refurbished units. I got my 2820 with XM a few months back and paid over $400. Todate I have no complaints and love the XM and MP3 capability. It's also an easy mount to the existing BMW mounting bracket.

Re: Good Deals on Garmin 2820

Thanks Doug - Question:

Will the 2820 interface with the accessories that I have with my Streetpilot III or will I have to rewire the bike. What about PC software? Will I need to get new software too?

Yes except you'll loose the use of the 4 buttons on the BMW cradle. I got a replacement cradle for about $14 for aesthetic reasons. The existing BMW wiring will only give you mono from the XM/MP3 but there is an easy solution by running a cable from the audio output on the 2820 to the aux input on the BMW Comm System. The map software is the same.

Re: Good Deals on Garmin 2820

I ordered a 2820 from Get Feet Wet today. It's a refurbished unit for $215.00. I told the rep I had seen lots of posts with their name in them on our forum. I asked for free shipping and got it. 2820 shipping today on FedEx. Will be here late next week.

Re: Good Deals on Garmin 2820

Hi, John,
How can I be Da Man when you are already Da Man? I got the cheapest.....well, least expensive newer version motorcycle GPS I could find. You got all the bells and whistles. I hear yours will even make coffee and frozen adult beverages!
