2730 - STC-II and back + XM & Weather
Well, the Garmin mount worked well w/ the 2730 in the Smoky Mountains last week. Was very nice to have the map set to 0.2 mile scale, and be able to see the "shape" of the next set of upcoming curves on "unknown" roads.
I had a bit of a pleasant surprise activating the XM + Weather - It turns out Garmin is a partner w/ XM - the XM was (I forget now, but think) $9 / month; The Weather / Traffic / Data was to be $12 / month.... when I said I want both because they're both on the Garmin (single XM activation) she said "Oh, that's $3.99 / month."
I said "$3.99 extra for the Weather add-on - that's a good discount."
"No," she said. "$3.99 for BOTH SERVICES because it's in one integrated unit, a Garmin unit."
Wow. I now have XM, weather, traffic data, and stock reports for $3.99 / month. I just paid for a year's service.
