    eBay is the devil. Just thought I'd say that. Build an awesome listing and then it told me it was going to hold my money - **** that. I have 90 feedback and sold 15k last year. You aren't holding my money.

    So, I'm going to offer it here! This is an awesome unit and has been great to me, but I'm going on the assumption the new iphone will negate its purpose.

    It comes in the original box, has car mount, automotive power cable and GPS unit.

    I'd like $130 shipped -> now dropped to $105 for this. -> now $95!

    I'm not sure I understand - its a standard GPS (but does have some nice features like TTS)

    You enter the address and it tells you how to get there. Touchscreen, can be hacked very easily for games, music etc... Has a mount to attach it to your car windshield.

    And yes, the ebay hold... I don't have 100 fdbk so I get a 21 day hold. Garbage :(

    Whoops, misunderstood that one. Yeah, it works great. I even run my daily routes through it and it usually goes faster then the drives I've been doing for years.

    Heres the amazon link (with lots of reviews)

    I'll include a brand new in package Kingston SD card to sweeten the deal.

    I've been subscribed to this thread but lack the funds to make the purchase right now. Just wondering does this have a battery and how long does it last? How fast does it keep up with your current location? and you said you're including an extra SD card, what size and what can I load onto it, like all my favorites and such? I'd like to find another mount for it so I can install one in my work viehicle and the other in my personal viehicle. Thanks and sorry about all the questions :p

    Yes, its got a battery and I really only charge it when I'm not using it. Its got great life. I've heard estimates of 4 hours of live tracking / many weeks of sleeping. Also includes a car charger so its not really an issue either way. The SD card is 1gb and you can put music, new maps, POI's etc on it. Mounts shouldn't be too hard to find, maybe generic/aftermarket ones.
