Nextag Garmin 492

Buy from a trusted seller and you will have no problem. We have used a few of the different vendors for other products. You can even set up e-mail alert for price changes.

Make sure to change the zip code to your area the link shows mine.

Good luck

I see that its listed at $701 out the door at Buydig right now using the Nextag service! So why are the above prices better? Do what you want but I just can't see buying at a vendor who is higher in price. When it comes to this type of product I'ts all about the price! Store loyalty is gone unless they can price match.

Exactly what I was going to say!
I just bought a Garmin 3210c and XM weather package. West Marine dropped $438.00 off the price because I brought in a competitors price.
Find the best price you can online (not ebay, they won't honor that), go to the "check out" page like you were going to buy it & print out that page.

Not to beat this to death But yes I have done this myself and most places will honor the On-line price and you can walk out the door with it in hand. Only downfall is sales tax but the convenience certainly can make up for it.
