Ebay has a NEW 660 for $349 including shipping.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Garmin-zumo-660-Motorcycle-GPS-Receiver-NO-MAPS-/200807572605

I am NOT the seller and in fact I just purchased (using Pay Pal) in case there is something fishy going on.


Condition:
New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is
Type: Motorcycle
MPN: 010-00727-01, 010-00727-00
Brand: Garmin
Features: 3D Map View, MP3 Player, Audio Book Player
Model: zumo 660
Screen Size: 3.81 in. x 2.25 in.

The only problem is no maps? (removed the comments on screen size)

BUT the part #s listed 010-00727-01, 010-00727-00 are for the Zumo 660

How the heck did they get the maps off a "brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging" item?

Somethings sounds fishy, but at that price I will take a chance and see what shows up. If I do not get a brand new and in the box items I can get Pay PAL to fight for my refund.

Paul,
I sent the seller a question about the no maps claim, I'll post if they reply.
I posted a question yesterday asking what came in the box. Then the QTY available went from 10-6 in a few hours.

Like I said, if it does not come new in the box with everything but MAPS I can contact Pay Pal.

Also with that being said, as I was doing the research there is a new model, the Zumo 660LM

Lifetime maps. Maybe that is what the seller is confused about.

But I but in the next few hours he will be sold out...

:dance:

Mine came loaded with the maps. Occasionally I'll update them. In fact, I think a new update just came put.

Dan, Did you get one from this seller on ebay?

That is the curious question.. How can he sell brand new in the box never opened without maps?

Especially since the part # listed on ebay is for a "new unit" not a refurb..

Paul,

No, mine came from the local dealer in Tampa, (with my bike) but it was sealed in the box. I've never heard of a GPS without its initial set of maps.

They might mean that it does not include updates. Seems like a good price.

Paul,
I just took the bite also. This will be to replace my StreetPilot 2610 for my RT. I also looked on the Garmin website and did see the North America map for $79. Now, once the gps arrives and I can test it, I will need to order the correct cable to connect to the bmw audio system and my bmw J&M system.

If you look at their negative and neutral feedbacks there seems to be 2 recurring themes, product was not new and product was no longer in stock (didn't have it).

With Garmin when you purchase a NEW or Refurbished unit you are entitled to the latest maps up to six months from the day you register it with Garmin. Not having maps installed is a first. I own several Garmin units. Mostly new ones. I only purchased two that were factory refurbished. No issues with any of them. At least major ones. The Ebay item is vague on the information but the seller states NEW in original box. So it should be just that.
I purchased one this morning and the seller already shipped using UPS. I have buyers protection from Ebay and PayPal. I am not concerned if this is a scam purchase.
It should arrive by the end of the week if all goes well.

I was also interested to replace my old 2820 but I did not get any response to my questions I sent the other day.

Hopefully it is as stated!! NEW

Please let us know when you receive.

Don

Mine fell through somehow. I paid by PayPal and at first it tried to charge my old credit card. I then selected my new card and thought that I completed the purchase and thought that I saw a confirmation, but it never went through and nothing has been charged to my account. It may have been someone telling me that I really did not need the 660.

Just came in the mail. Yes it is BRAND new in the Garmin box. Brackets, hardware and other stuff in sealed packages. Not Refurbished. I turned it on and it does NOT have any mapping software as stated. No problem I will register it with Garmin later on today and get the Free maps they offer with new products up to a certain time frame.

mine came in Friday.

the box was a little damaged, but the device looks new and DOES have a map on it.

All the hardware came in the box, but no software.

I will play look into the map version and other stuff in a few weeks.
