I just had my Magellan 1412 stolen, but was looking at the Garmin 260w now $169 @ Costco. Unfortunately I can't find a working 260w to play with, so I hope you can answer two questions for me:
1 - Can the 260 accept manual entry of lat/long coordinates like some of the more recent models?
2 - Does anyone know if the Costco version of the 260 is Version A (no WhereAmI) or Version B (with WhereAmI).
3 - Does the Version A or B question affect the answer to question #1 ?
According to the manual the 260 will accept coordinates.Some users have gotten lucky on getting the ones with Where Am I and other options on the newer 2x5 models.
This post http://www.poi-factory.com/node/19638 has some discussion about it.
My understanding is if it has a MicroSD slot rather than a normal SD slot it is the later version.
Amazon has the 760 factory refurbished for only 189...and it does all the above and more...http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-760-Widescreen-Automobile-Refurbished/dp/B001DG0DTS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_10?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1237169296&sr=8-10
